Some crafting from this last year

Knitting & Stitching Show 2012 RDS 
Looking for bargains at the end of the day. BIG MISTAKE, filled the  boot of my car

Sophie and I checking out the new projects purchased at the knitting & stitching show at the RDS

Evidence of the damage that I/we done..running out of room in the boot of the car

Secret is out - overspend (I think) Partners in crime

Christmas time , let the card making begin

Rudolph's friend dropped in to choose a card to send to all his friends

Another project nearly  finished, this has been on the hook for a few years,
 2012 will be about finishing  off craft projects, this I hope to do with my special crafter friends......
 Starting my blog I hope will help me  to keep my 2012 promise to myself

Upholster-ing my dinning room chairs

As I said I was going to upholster my dinning room chairs, daunting task I must add, so looking on the bright side anything would be an improvement, goodness I had to look at these for the past 31 years.
Such Fun!!
The before and after picture, I am very pleased with the result

Yes, that's more like it, my beautiful chairs, now these I can live with!!
