Daddy I want a balloon that sticks too the ceiling too

It’s been a while since I posted about actual craft, so here is an offering of my hasty craft project from last nite …

ho ho ho christmas cards!

This was a brainwave of mine last nite when I was having a quick breenj round Hobbycraft, which has newly opened at the Fort in Glasgow.  It really does seem to have everything, including the bias binding that they said on the phone they didn’t have! 

I stitched this in red to match the green cards and I am really quite pleased with how they turned out.  I just need to find a better way to mount them (maybe steal Lee’s spray mount) and we’re laughing.

I have ideas for a mini-range of these, and may sell them, so stay tuned!

In other crafting news, progress on secret craft project #1 is going slowly:


I’m sure that the recipient does not read my blog, so I can reveal that it is a cross stitched black poodle for my cousins in America!  It is taking WAY longer than anticipated, but I am soldiering on.  Jo is kindly going to then make him into a cushion for me, potentially with some tweedy/tartan fabric to match their taste/decor.

I’ve also got several other Christmas crafting projects in mind and aim to get going on these ASAP!  Some of them are secret, some are not.

This week will be spent mainly packaging up orders for website and making stock!
