Been busy making 'keepsake' cards this week...

...marked out the aperture of my card on old linen....


....added a fabric paint background...


....sponged the sky and added various hand stitches for the grasses...


....completed card!


Also made an autumnal theme card...


....and finally have started a cot blanket in c2c crochet pattern from my last post using yarn left over from previous projects....


....this pattern would make a cosy throw in a variegated wool yarn and is so easy.
