Hi there!! I have been enjoying crocheting lately and have a project with matching card to share with you that I made for a dear friend’s birthday in Feb. I found a cool pattern on-line for these Easy Crochet Wristers (fingerless gloves so you can keep your hands/wrists warm and still be able to do things like use a computer & phone). I made myself a pair and figured I would get a jump start on some handmade Christmas gifts and make more. But because this friend has a birthday this month, she is getting them now since it’s still cold here. I already know she likes them because she saw my pair and said she would like some and then I told her I was already making them. But the matching card will be a surprise still *wink* they are so fast & easy to make, I finish them in several days!
Here is a close up of the card, since I covered up the little heart accent on the first photo. I used Crafty Cuppie who happens to be knitting (and crocheting is with 1 needle) but it still works! I took the layout from my card from an SU! magazine that I have in my sketch book – it was a fun one! The card came together in less than 20 minutes!
Update on John: He is doing well, had his post-op appt with his surgeon yesterday and said he was doing well. Goes back in 8 weeks. We got out yesterday for a little ‘date’ after work – he came up to my office so I could show him around and we went to the movies and out to eat. We saw True Grit which was a pretty decent movie. The acting was great but we walked away from it saying, ‘is that it"?’ it went by too fast. He is out Geocaching (or rather driving 3 other Geocachers around) in San Antonio today while I stamp my heart out for the next TE release (sneak peeks start Tues Feb 1st!)
Thanks for stopping by – hope you have a great weekend!!
