Delight in Simple Things–a card and crochet

Hei there.. today I have a few “springy” things to show you. This weekend I was busy with a order I got through my Etsy store for some baby items. I made this card sometime last week using one of Lili Of The Valley’s new images called “Never too old for a cupcake” The stamp comes with the cute sentiment but it was a bit large for my layout. I love stamp sets like that – what a great deal to get a image AND a sentiment for the same money. Most of you what a little sucker iam for sentiments. hahahahha

Well.. the other thing I wanted to show you is a cloth hanger I altered. You might remember my Magnolia honey bee project I had made for a Magnolia INK issue. I had still some of these pretty hangers at home (they are quite gorgeous painted Smile) and I used some of my scrap cotton yarns to make a sleeve for one of the hangers. I do plan to make 2 more in different colors to have a nice set maybe for a gift or to put up on Etsy.

Right now iam sitting close to my sewing machine Smile I have sew a little sack close to stuff with some fibers, to finally finish my pin cushions. My “master plan” is to finish all my knitted and most of my crochet stuff that’s been sitting here but the ends have not been waved it. I can not tell you how much I dislike to do this job. By the time I have something “finished” I have the next project in mind I and I think – oh I wave the ends in tonight but it never happens. I literally have stuff from last winter sitting in my closet that has to be finished!

Lovely fresh colours to your card, Claudi, a nice change when the sky is so grey! Wonderful colouring and beautiful details. Love the coat hanger too, I have promised myself that I will learn to crochet maybe over the Xmas holidays - I keep dropping hints for a needle, yarn and book, but it seems to fall on deaf ears! Maybe Santa will oblige?! Lisa x
