WOYWW - just a bit late!


Happy Wednesday everyone.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.
Ours weekend was spent with daughter M and was really great.

Thanks to all of you who sent beautiful Christmas cards - you are such a clever bunch!!

Not much going on in my craft room this week. I seemed to have been so busy up to Christmas that I am finding it quite a treat doing other things for a change.

The picture above shows all the gorgeous lace, braid and fabric sent to us by Rebecca for our "Dress a girl around the world" frocks. A huge parcel came along with Christmas stuff. I unpacked it and showed it to Annie and packed it away ready for the New Year when we will start again with our little frocks. So a big "Thank you" to Rebecca - it will all be put to good use.

Below are a few "dumfed" cards that I made as gifts for my Yorkshire friends. When I lived up there, they all loved to dip into our card box for special occasion cards so, I like to make sure they still have a few now and again.


I think I like this set best. I used an idea in my latest Stitch magazine and made them in a range of colours.

Well folks - short and sweet today - and late!
So a quick dash to Julia's Stamping Ground to link up with you all and I will be round to see what everyone else has been up to.

Enjoy your New Year celebrations.
Best wishes
Jo

Absolutely fabulous cards, so envious of your talent at dumfing. Am on the lookout for a pure wool sweater to wash in hot water (Annie told me this is what you do to form the base)- charity shops here I come.
Glad you had a lovely Christmas with family - have a good New Year. Hugs, neet #4

Fun and beautiful lace you received. Your cards are so pretty. Kinda quiet here just sitting back and enjoying, my cleaning up the downstairs can wait a bit, the ole' body is quite lazy. Enjoy your countdown to 2012.

Those cards are so pretty. i am not surprised your Yorkshire friends loved them, and I am sure they will be so pleased with your gifts. I like the landscapes and the ones on blue/mauve card best.

Thank you for all your encouraging comments throughout the past year, and look forward to reading any more in 2012. Good health and happiness to you and all your family for the next year. xx Maggie #50

Gorgeous cards - could almost get me into felting but Mr B would divorce me if I started yet another craft, he already thinks I have far too much stuff, but what does he know???
Happy 2012
