One of my resolutions last year was to spend more time crafting so I’ve decided to dedicate some time every weekend crafting on specific WIP’s. Just knitting isn’t enough, as I do this most evenings anyway so I want to make sure that I spend time on the other craft that I enjoy and it’ll help me keep my Folksy shop nicely stocked!

Last year, I failed to send quite a few birthday cards on time. Part of the reason was that I didn’t have any cards in the house. So I decided that I should make a stock of birthday cards just for me to use. I won’t write them in advance, as I’ve done that before & a few recipients haven’t made it to their birthday. Yep, I’m that superstitious that I won’t be doing that again! So for the moment, I’ll keep them safe & blank.

Handmade cards

I’ve used Blom Flowers and washi tape, but I have quite a few other ideas that I’d like to develop further. But, you can pretty much guarrantee that I’ll be using my new favourite thing, washi tape!

Some of my time today has also been spent working on a little project using some Liberty fabric I received before Christmas. But I wanted to do something a little different, something to brighten up the house & use an idea I’ve seen on Pinterest. It’s a Work in Progress, so here’s a little snippet of what I’ve achieved today, during the Murray/Djokovic final.

Needlepoint

This is something that I’m going to work on everytime I sit down to watch sport, so with the Six Nations coming up, it shouldn’t take me too long to complete it & move on to the next one! I’ll keep you posted on this & on all my other craft WIP once a month! What are you working on at the moment? Feel free to share it & a link to your site in the comments below!
