Good morning all. February already...this time last year I was gadding about New Zealand, I can't believe a year has gone by since but other times it feels like it was a lifetime ago.
Thank you for your lovely comments on my craft room...I'm making a conscious effort to keep it tidy, though I'm not sure how long that will last!  

UFO's....no not the flying kind, the unfinished ones!!! I uncovered quite a few between the loft and the craft room and decided to make a conscious effort to either finish some or just get rid!

From the loft there were various knitting projects, embroidery from way back when (including a tablecloth Mum started for her bottom drawer!), tapestry and goodness knows what else!

I had three jumpers on the go...one for each of my kids. So far I've managed to finish one of them to give my great nephew and here he is modelling it....it's only taken 23 years or so from start to finish!! I've made progress with the one which was started for Lora too but sadly the one started for Gary I no longer seem to have the pattern for...it's a lovely fisherman's rib and was either from a kids pattern book or a magazine pullout but it's disappeared off the face of the earth!

The base layers of this card were lurking in the craft room and I decided they would be ideal for my Mother's Day card. I also found the You to Me Teddy topper from a magazine freebie which was perfect for my Mum.

Papers were 12x12 scrapbook ones, can't remember who by! Dies are all Spellbinders and embossing folder is from Cuttlebug. Flowers, pearls and ribbon are from my stash.
