February Week 3 – Valentines Card

Obviously with the subject being Valentines Card this is again a delayed post – for 2 reasons 1. So hubby didn’t see the card before the day and 2.  To give me time to have a bit of a catch up.

So for this card I used the following from my stash:

I used my Cricut Explore to cut the text and then accentuated parts of it with the stickles.  My aim was to keep a pretty clean and simple (CAS) card.

February Week 3 – Crochet

So another catch up post… the weekend after I finished knitting the components for the mermaid tail to put of sewing it together I decided I wanted to do some Crochet.  This is another pattern from the Knit and Crochet magazine.  Again this is design that I fell in love with and actually I thought it could be the start of a Crochet Blanket and what better way to start than with a nice spring square. This also used  the free wool from the magazine.

I hope you like it 🙂 I am not going to update on the status of any of my other projects as nothing has changed since last night.

February Week 3 – Knitting

Well I am a little bit behind on my posts this month – although that doesn’t mean I haven’t been spending some time doing crafts.  It is more of a mix of things 1. Work has just been so busy including working at home in the evenings and 2. putting off “finishing” my wool projects.  I find the sewing together and sewing in ends the most boring part of Knitting and Crochet and as such sometimes I put it off for quite some time before I do it.

You will remember at the end of January I was half way through a second project – one that I was making for my hubby.  Well about 2 weeks ago (so really not that far into February) I completed that knitting project (well all except the finishing). So I have finally got round to finishing the project and therefore time to share it with you.

This was a pattern from Knitting and Crochet magazine.  As soon as I saw the pattern I fell in love with it.  Hubby does photography in his spare time and he has a few baby props and I knew this would be a perfect design to go with his baby props.  I used the free wool from the magazine for this project – although you could use whatever colour scheme you wished.

I hope you like it 🙂
