Cards and frocks

Just a quick update on my crafty activities.
Firstly, my latest additions to the frocks we are making for the "Dress a girl around the world" scheme.
Louise has posted a picture of some of our dresses all ready to go on their journey to Africa.
Click here to see what is happening to them.
It sounds like a great idea to include one in each of the backpacks going out to Malawi.


I thought I was up to my 107th dress but Annie showed me that I couldn't add up and actually I have now made 117!!  It doesn't really matter - I will keep going until I have used up all the fabric that kind bloggers have sent us. (AND the lovely Sue H informs me that she has found another pretty duvet which will be heading our way soon! - Thanks lots Sue.)

This afternoon I made little "Thank you" cards. I know they are not up the standard of you wonderful REAL card makers out there but I enjoyed playing with pretty fabric and our Cuttlebug machine with the Tim Holtz flower die. Simple but effective, I think.




Well that's it folks.
I am all set to go and watch the new series of "Have I got news for you" - always a good giggle on a Friday night and a good follow up to last night's "Mock the week" which was very funny too.

Tomorrow I hope to see Annie's new grand children - she will have her own little creche on the go and be in her element!!
Thanks for popping in here to see what I have been up to - never a dull moment here! - x Jo
