My Dad's birthday is next week so I made him a pirate card! No idea why I went for pirates apart from the fact he likes sailing (don't think he robs anyone while out at sea though!) but it worked out great :-)
I love how it turned out! Hope he likes it :-)
The local village show is at the start of September. I'm always roped in as a bit of a ringer for the local Townswomen's Guild which my Mam is a member of, they aren't actually that interested in crafts and baking but hate getting beaten by the WI! So I'm kind of a honorary member for the weekend. Nothing like a bit of one-up-manship to get the ladies going, lol! So this year the categories I'm entering are the cross stitch picture, Christmas card, Christmas decoration and crochet item, I'll make an ami for that. This week I stitched a sampler for the picture, it only took three days which surprised me as there are quite a lot of beads in it. So here it is....
Just need to go to Wilkinson's and get a mount and frame for it now. The chart I used actually didn't have the bottom green and pink band on it but I added this to make it the right size for a standard shop bought picture frame, it's worked out the perfect size and saves a fortune on framing! So I need to get cracking with the other stuff now, no idea what to make yet!
Slogging along! :)
