    I had been working on a plastic canvas haunted house, but once I got deeper into the semester for school....well....it's just sitting there right now. Taunting me.

    welllllll, there's a lady who has a beauty treatment shop and a clothes boutique and my sister spoke to her and has arranged for my other sister and I to see her with a view to making cards for her to sell.....we're off to see her on Tuesday morning.

    So I've been making valentines cards, wedding cards, new baby cards and birhday cards - i don't have that many though but i didn't want to make too many in case she decides they're not the type of thing she wants!

    She understands that my sister and I only usually make them for personal use and she's only experienced selling them for her aunt before so it's a new thing for us all really....we need to sit down together and work out how to go about it! :unsure:

    I haven't done any card making or scrapbooking for about two months and am itching to get started again. I have missed all my craft classes too - DS has been in hospital for best part of the past three months so have had no free time :(

    oh, and i just remebered i found a little box full of cross stitching threads in the loft today which i've kept out with a view to combining that and card making.

    AND i found patchwork for a quilt that i started 15 years ago safely tucked away up there so I'm going to try and get it finished for baby Nancy this year, if i don't succeed she can have it for her 21st birthday instead!

    hey! there's nothing wrong with cross stitch!

    I'm quite proud of the things I made, especially as I designed them myself :thumbsup: The best were a coat of arms for my Mum, a picture of the cottage that Mum and Dad used to own in Ireland, a wedding picture for my friend and door hangers with the boys names on to match the teddy design in their bedrooms when they were babies.

    I forgot I had the threads so it was a nice surprise!

    i designed a parrot, it isn't framed- i wouldn't have anywhere to put it. I've also done baby samplers in the past.

    I had an idea that i could do a scrapbook layout in cross stitch but haven't looked into it yet.

    I'm making birthday cards, a word book for the great-granddaughter-to-be, and also crocheting her a baby afghan. If I can find time I'll make Valentines cards for the grandkids.

    Dawns knight outfit just reminded me I have to make an ancient Greek outfit for DS9, and he's just told me he's going to make a papier mache planet for school.

    i reckon that asking for costumes is a teachers revenge for having to pay high prices for holidays :yes: or they hate other working Mums and the not good at sewing. It's ok, there is a fancy dress shop near the cinema this afternoon!
