2nd Knitting make, meet Sid Scarecrow

Meet sid, hes taken a good while to learn to knit, because I knit left handed, I discovered when I bought a book "knitting for dummies"

I taught myself to knit right handed and hes the result, Sid Scarecrow. He was knitted from the Jean Greenhowe patterns.

He has his faults but I love him

Jewellery Set Earrings, Bracelet and Bag Charm

Jewellery is something I been doing for a couple of months and although I like it, sometimes I`m stuck for inspiration. But at the weekend while tidying some things up, I was struck by a flower.

It was pink with bits of green on it, when I came indoors, I thought they are nice colours together and set about making a card. Changed my mind and made some jewellery.

I came up with this set which is a bracelet, earrings and a bag charm, I know a necklace would of been better, but I like to be different.....

Golfing fan

This is a card for a 50 year old golf addict, its A4 in size and its a stamped image , scanned and blown up to the size I wanted, the original stamp would have been too small for this size card

I have coloured it in with my promarkers, and layered it up with various backing papers.

I now have to make another golfing card and have just realised, I have cut out a cricketing image. I`m sure I`m losing the plot some days

Female Cards

Tried some stamping today with my Matilda stamps, seem to have a bit of a passion for these at the moment and think we all go through stages of having favourites, then putting them in a cupboard and forgetting about them while we move onto something else.

I`ve tried to make the cards look feminine with the flowers, but I`m not a girly girl and struggle sometimes, I hope you like
