Parchment Fan

A warm hello from a cold Kwa-Zulu Natal! It is freezing here today and even more cold is apparently on the way for our area. Even though it was freezing here in my craft room, I forced myself to sit down and finish my set of ABC ATC's for our rubberstamp group swap. It was for the letters Q, R & S. I had a royal battle with the Q ones, but, now they are done and can be in the post tomorrow or so. Sorry, cannot show them yet! They will probably only appear here around the middle of August.

In the meantime, here is a small fan I made some time ago. The blades are only around 10 to 12cm long. But, as you can see, the final product is gorgeous, even though I have to say so myself :-) There's a whole 18 blades! Being so small, they were nice and easy to handle.
Thank you so much for your visit. Hope you like what you see!

Hope you will all have a wonderful week with plenty time to do what you enjoy most.

Wall decorations

It has been freezing cold here in Sunny South-Africa but luckily we have a lovely sun room where I can sit and knit. My craft room is far too cold to work in at this stage. I have knitted so many pairs of mittens, my hands are aching. But I am not complaining, they are selling very well.

Just a quick post to show you some wall decorations I did some time ago. Don't remember where the patterns are from, but I do remember that I enjoyed doing them.

Hope you will all enjoy what is left of this week! Tonight Bafana Bafana is playing again - we'll be holding all thumbs for them.

I've been a Lucky Duck!

Look what I won over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog a while ago! I could not believe it when I saw my name and comment there. Now I am doing the happy dance all over again as my CD arrived safely in my post box.
Thanks so much again to the Simon Says Stamp group and to Tim Holtz.

Have a great week everybody!

Still around :-)

Good Morning to all my friends! Hope you are all keeping well.

This is just a quick post to let you know that I am still alive :-) Life is just happening too fast around me at the moment and there are just too many things that requires my attention. I am still not getting around to doing stamping or parchment and really wish a day had many, many more hours.

This is practically the only crafting I am getting done at present - and only while I am watching some soapies at night. At our machine embroidery class last week one of the ladies shared the pattern with us. I knitted a pair for a friend and from there I have been knitting them to sell at the farm stall. My dear hubby made me the hand and since it is displayed like that, I cannot keep up and wish I had two pairs of hands! These are super easy to knit.

I hope that everybody will have a lovely weekend. We are definitely starting to feel that it is actually winter, but still have some nice days.

Today is the beginning of a soccer mad month for us here in South-Africa. Who-ever you are cheering for, may the best team win.

Thanks again for stopping by!
