Sunday, May 31


Sunday Today was a pretty productive crafty day.  I was working on my crocheted valance for the master's bathroom.  I realized that it was nicer to crochet outside in daylight and nice weather.  I'll have to do that more often.  For this latest crochet project, I used the Fan Trellis Stitch, which I got from the Crochet Stitch Bible by Betty Barnden.  I highly recommend this book if you're into crochet.  The yarn is Red Heart worsted medium in Fall.  My valances are not done yet, but I'm hoping to finish them next week.


Also, I was able to finish swapping images from my International Image Swap.  Again, thank you all for joining!  We have swappers from the US, Germany, Sweden, Philippines, and Korea... woot!  At this moment, we are on the right track and they will be mailed back to you by the due date, or probably even earlier.
Finally, I was able to make an anniversary card for DSIL.  I like the final product.  I hope they both like it too.  

The materials used are the following:
  • Card base and matching envelope by Paper Reflections
  • Cardstock:  Embassy (black) and Georgia Pacific (white)
  • Ribbon by Michaels
  • Stamps:  Inkadinkado and Stampin' Up
  • Black Spica pen
