I still haven't done the Christmas scrapbook, unfortunately the printer has run out of ink and I forgot to pick some up on my trip to town. The cost of the ink when printing so many photographs is quite high, I am going to see what the costs are at the photo shop and compare prices.
My love for Harris Tweed is great, I love everything about it. So I have had a couple of glorious afternoons working with it. The beautiful colours take me back to some wonderful days spent on the Island of Lewis/Harris and the landscapes with all its natural beauty. My stash of such luxurious fabric is getting low so a trip in the near future needs to be planned.
I have made a whole stack of toppers in preparation for cards, notelets and gift tags that I use throughout the year. All ready and stored in a box for when they are required, I am determined to stay organized this year.
I have already made the gift tags needed for 3 birthday parcels at the end of the month, which I am quite pleased with. I have even used some buttons out of my extensive collection, which grew again over Christmas with some lovely gifts.
I have also made myself a couple of bookmarks as I am keen to read a little more this year. I did make a note in my Christmas book that these would make wonderful gifts for family and friends, a quick and easy make perhaps with a book or magazine subscription.
Its nice to be back in my craft room after what seems an age. I am looking forward to some more crafting adventures and keep eyeing up all the fabric that I have. What to do with it, what to make, where to start.
I am going to spend the afternoon browsing some of my old vintage patterns and books, hopefully I will soon have a plan. I am thinking Spring/Easter...Anyone else started to think about Spring yet?
We have just booked a lovely break to Holland with my eldest daughter and her family, something wonderful to look forward to. As I am typing this I am thinking patchwork picnic throw, I think I had better check out the fabric stash.
See you soon.
