How has your week been? After my disappointment with the Easter weather I've actually had a very good week - a spot of gardening (including getting stranded in the greenhouse during a very heavy shower), tea and cake at CafeKnit with the lovely Celia (with the obligatory purchase of some wool of course), a trip round Long Melford with another lovely friend Fran and the discovery that I can now listen to the radio in my kitchen again courtesy of this app on my iphone/ipad (such clever stuff!).
I've also made some small textile pieces that I think I'll make into cards.
It started off as one bigger piece but I didn't like it so I cut it up! They're not big, this one is just 3.5cm x 5.5cm.
I found some copper wire in my sewing box (like you do!), so each piece has got some of that on as well as some copper beads.
I'm going to test one out this week for a friend's birthday - she's
having a hard time with chemotherapy at the moment, so I'm hoping
something homemade might cheer her up a little.
PS - If anyone knows where I can get some good quality blank cards and envelopes from I'd really appreciate it you could let me know - they need to be quite thick to take the weight of the textile without buckling or splaying out.
