Erika across at http://snappycrafts.blogspot.co.uk started the "Oldie on Friday" a few weeks ago, it does not have to be cards. Anything that you have done in the past be a few months or years ago. Please pop it on and let us see, just for a bit of fun.
Erika is in hospital at the moment after an operation. I am sending her a load of (((((hugs))))) in hope that they help. I think she is more worried about how her hubby and boys will keep the house than she is about herself.
When I lived the summers out in Dalyan, Turkey I had to have something to do in my spare time. Supplies of card, papers, toppers etc:- were in very short supply and having them sent over cost a fortune. Thinking cap on and I decided on Cross Stitch, something I had never done before. Aida was hard to get so I took some designs and magazines out with me. DMC threads were approx 80p each, I did notice when Hazel and I were there a couple of weeks ago they were up to just over £1 .... how much are there here now???
I am not into pictures or ornaments (too much to dust) very minimalist here at the Ranch.
All my Cross Stitch pieces are safely rolled up and in a cupboard. I brought some out to photograph them.
Here is my offering for this Friday:-
Not that good but Hey! Ho! it passed hours sitting in the shade of our wonderful Grape strewn Terrace.
I did a lot of small designs, I had some of them framed and gave as little gifts to friends and neighbours out there.
Both of these should be back stitched to finish them off.
The fact I will never use them I think I will pass on that ....... its a thing I hated doing anyway
Ok that`s my offering, how about yours!!!
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
