As promised...

... here are some pictures of Christmas cards I've made, and the scarf I'm working on.  Sadly, I have to admit that the scarf has not progressed much further since the pictures were taken quite a few days ago now.  It's been a busy week and not a lot of crafting was accomplished :(  Hopefully I'll get to create over the weekend, it looks blissfully free so far!

Christmas cards

I sat down and pulled out some 12x12cm cards and a kit from My Minds Eye which I got last year but hadn't used very much.  I had also stamped all the sentiments previously, ready to go on cards.  So now was the time and within a relatively short time, using the kit and just a few extra bits, I had made four little cards :)


I'm making this for my mum's birthday in November, it's a teal Arran yarn from Tess Dawson, and I'm using a pattern from a little supplement to a knitting magazine I got last year.  I love the pattern and all the cables, but it is fairly slow going, because there is so much cabling going on.  It would also help if the puppy didn't try and snatch balls of wool every time I sit down to knit...

Now, the cushion cover I mentioned in  my last post is nearly finished.  For reasons best known to myself, I joined the back and front BEFORE weaving in all the ends...  However, it shouldn't take too long, and once it's fully finished with buttons and cushion pad inside, I will post a picture on here :)

Well, that's it for now, thanks for stopping by!
