September is going fast...
...too fast! The nights are drawing in pretty fast now and we will soon be putting our clocks back. I love the weather though. Ok , we have had some rain..but not too bad and the temperature is more to my liking. I do love Autumn. Still not got the grass cut and there is a bit more to do in the garden. I'm not going to get stressed about it though...it will get done when it gets done. I've got two things to show you. first the cross stitch that I did for one of my grand-daughters. Word came back that she loved it. The pattern was from cross stitcher magazine. I did it on 14 count to make it a bit quicker and glad I went for the blue aida..think it shows the shading better.
Next, a card. I did this for the Crafters Re-united forum inspirational challenge. The remit was circles and stripes. Was a bit thrown by this but then I was inspired by Papercraft Inspirations magazine..and a free download of the paper used...perfect! I needed a card for my neice's partner as well. Difficult task here as I've nevr met him and don't know anything about him except that he is an accountant. So..combined the two and went for a basic male card. Happy with the way it turned out.
Striped paper..I think is Papermania. Faces paper a free download from Papercraft Inspirations. The text is computer generated. Dark blue paper from stash.
Also managed a couple of ATCs for the forum. Must get those in the post!....and I really need to sort out my my picasa ATC albums.....and this blog needs a bit of updating. The list of things to do is getting longer......
