Productive Day

Paula and I attended a day crop on Saturday in
New Ross. I was quite happy to complete my recipe cards
for a recipe swap (12 in total) and complete 2 layouts.
Hopefully the weather will co-operate and we'll be
able to attend the next day crop in February.

Maybe .... :O

I would love to make this set.
(Minus the tassels)
Once I am a bit more confident with the
needles then I may try this.
Using the same colors too, my fave colors.

Learning to Knit

Thanks to Aaron's Ma, I am learning to knit. :) It's something
that I've wanted to learn for awhile now. I had picked up some books
but couldn't get anywhere with them. I needed someone to actually
show me how to do the stitches, how to cast on and cast off.
This is my first project, just straight knitting. Easy but good for practise.
Then I decided to go all crazy and combine stitches and
learn to follow a pattern. This one didn't turn out the best
but it's ok.

My next attempt at using a pattern and diferent stitches.
A little bit better. :)

Altered Projects

A bit late posting these .... these were Christmas gifts.
I also made 2 BG calendar kits and a mini album which
I didn't take pictures of. :(
Obviously, this was for my fiance. It is a picture frame
which I got from the dollarstore. The little stand came with it.
Of course, it is much sparklier IRL.
This hanging wood piece also came from a Dollarama.
I only picked up one and now I am kicking my butt for not
picking up more.
This was for my Best Friend. :) And she Loves it. :)
