Father Christmas

I submitted this page to Scrapbook Magazine ages ago and they have just published it in the current issue. They wanted 6" x 6" which I don't usually like but I did use it as practice for the 12" x 12" page below which is for my vintage photos family album.

I did not manage to catch up with my Christmas crafting apart from this Meery Christmas card design which I backed with red felt and used red felt letters to make into a card. As for the other projects, well there is always next year!

S0 the big day is almost here and I'd just like to wish anyone passing this way a very happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous new year. And in the words of Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carol: "God bless us, every one".

Meery Christmas

No, I didn't make a spelling mistake. With the trend for all things meerkat continuing I started to make a Christmas card for my mother-in-law, who loves them, using a kit from Mouseloft. I also made a second one on evenweave which I hoped to turn into a decoration for our tree.

My Christmas crafting has come to a bit of a halt as just over three weeks ago I found myself back in hospital for a week. It was a side effect of the operation I had earlier this year and I have spent two weeks at home recovering and have only gone out for the first time this week so I am hoping to try and finish everything off in time for Christmas.

Luckily I made all my stitched cards throughout the year and they have now all gone out - below are some I made previously.

I also managed to finish off this felt dog, the third one I have made and it is now on its way to a fellow Airedale owner who fell in love with the one I made for our club's raffle.

Wilberforce has just had his 15 minutes of fame when this Vetvits brochure landed on my door mat. I sent them a picture for their new gallery and received a dog book then forgot all about it until they used him on this recent mail shot. I just hope he doesn't start acting like a star and demanding steak dinners, feather beds and a chauffeur driven car! Hold on, he gets those already!!
