Knitting


The new issue of Making Cards is out today so I can now share one of the cards I had published last month. I made three cards using Pink Gem's Rita and showed how to paper piece digis.  I must paper piece more often as I love it and when you have a big item like the chair it is particularly effective. I used a MFT scalloped edge die and some lace and ribbon from Crafty Ribbons I also love the little scissors charm.

Very early start this morning to set up and sell my cards and gifts at the hospital today.
