Finally, an afternoon of crafting for the first time in weeks!

Well, I have finally managed to get an afternoon of crafting for the first time in weeks. I have missed it so much! Thanks to Katie for sending me these lovely spring Tilda stamped images, I love using them! I've made this card for my friend's birthday which is next week. We have been friends since we were in play school, so I wanted to make her a special card. I don't think you can see it on the picture, but I did actually hand stitch silver and pink thread around the border of the card, which took me a while. Think I'll get the sewing machine out next time! Ha!

Well, this evening I will be doing some more on my Tatty Teddy Wedding cross stitch. I am making it as a wedding present for my friends who are getting married on the 20th, and I haven't even got half way through it yet as I've put it off as it wasn't going to well!! I made the mistake of taking it around to my Gran's house about a month ago and thought I would do some while watching TV. Unfortunately my gran decided to talk to me instead and I missed out a section of the swing and its really bodged it up, and I have been putting off unpicking it, but I will have to tonight as D-day is approaching, faster than I'd like!! I also have to try and master french knot's, but I just know it's not going to happen! haha.....oh well!

Have a good evening all! Wish me luck! I'm going to need it.........
