It's true! The Crafty Corner is back in business! For now anyway. Once again, I can't show you everything until it has all been received by the people it is intended for, but I have got a couple of things to share!
I have made two of the three Father's Day cards that we need, and here is the one I have made for my FIL. Not sure why he is called "Dap", and my OH can't remember, he just is! I have struggled with both of the cards I have done so far, it's men! Give me a girl card any day!
Then here is the card I have made for my MIL's birthday. Not my usual style, but I reckon that Alma might like it with all the green! I did manage to sneak in a little bit of brown paper just to make it feel right!
In my last post I was predicting that I would be finishing my cross stitch some time this week. However, that didn't take into account a small disaster - I have run out of the dark blue needed to stitch the last few words :( I have ordered it, so now I am waiting for the postman to deliver it. I'm happy with how the dog and the bone stand out better from the fabric now that I've added some backstitch to outline. Watch this space for the finished item!
Loving this lovely sunny weather!
