What I mostly wordle about

I found this Wordle thing over on The Quince Tree which was also on Shanti's blog who saw it on Tecrin Tries! All good crochet blogs you should check out (plus all the others I follow to the right >>> )

This is a little summary of words on my blog. I'm surprised actually that Christmas came out as the most used word (I do love it though, and by saying the word I've just added to the stats!) and believe it or not I can't even see the word crochet at all! Prize to whoever points it out ;-)

Hi There 2011

The problem with making christmas cards and presents for other people is being able to a) give them away and b) restrain from blogging about them until after they've been received! I so wanted to share these before but couldn't be sure they wouldn't be spotted by my friends and family!

Now I admit I didn't make all the fancy little things on the cards, some were from Hobbycraft and Abakhans and a lot were bits and bobs from old christmas cards and things I've hoarded but I did have great fun putting them together.

So yes even though it's January (oh yes, Happy New Year!!!) here we are!

After 9 I ran out of steam a little so this was all I managed but hey, I'd be very greatful of any Christmas card. Now if they could all please be sent back to me that would be great as it was very hard parting with them... ;-)

All you need:
  • Some card & envelopes (I got mine in Fred Aldous, Manchester)
  • Sticky foam pads / double sided tape
  • Ribbon
  • Christmas motifs, old cards, wrapping paper
  • Felt / foam
  • Festive cheer / mulled wine
  • Scissors (very important!)
  • Anything else you can stick onto a card and part with

Perhaps some Easter card making might be on the horizon!
