A veritable goldmine!

If, like me, you spend time checking out recommended sites and links, you will inevitably come up trumps with one or two little treasures. Yes, I found Animal Artists Forum the other day, and was excited about that, but the same night I also found this, a delightful craft site with lots of information, interesting ideas, and again…friendly people. So I will be visiting it often, having  joined, and I’m ruminating on the possibilty of joining the group about ‘Inchies’ which looks very interesting. It appears that inchies are square inch pieces of decorated card/fibre/fabric which you can then use to adorn other projects. They would be good for card making. I made something similar last week. I got some felt and embroidered a daisy plant on it…not very well I have to say, and then cut it to about an inch and a half square, and tried to neaten the edges with blanket stitch. Disaster! Anyone know how to go round corners in blanket stitch? There must be a perfectly commonsense way of doing it, but it alluded me, and I was left with a very unattractive daisy plant, with uneven blanket stich intruding upon it from all angles. I threw it away 😦  But seeing the Inchies group, I might have another go.

Meanwhile, I started my preparations for christmas with the first handmade card…nothing special. Very simple design to ease me in. And I also did a rather cute bookmark, for a child. It is not very practical really, as a child will have the bears off in no time, but it is the the sort of thing that can be used as decoration on a bedroom wall or notice board.
