There Is No Blue*

I haven't done any knitting over the last two nights - I think I overdid it at the weekend and needed a little break!

Last night I had my friend Phil over for dinner, so I spent the time before he arrived making mini pizzas, chorizo crisps and mum's fab recipe for marmite and cheese palmiers (and, before anyone mentions how much they hate marmite - so do I! Somehow, with cheese and puff pastry it just works though).

Monday night I looked at my knitting and couldn't muster the motivation. Instead I made a couple of cards. Which makes way more mess and involves tidying up afterwards *frowns* not sure that worked as a great "no motivation, do something simple" plan!

Anyway, I made an Easter card for my grandparents. They like it when I write to them and I haven't done so in a little while, so this seemed like an excellent idea. I'm very into orange at the moment for some reason. I forgot to take a photo of the birthday card I made for my brother, but that was orange too (more bright, less pastel though!).

I don't know if this (sorry, blurry) picture shows it off, but the flowers, words and butterflies are heat embossed on, with a glittery finish. They look pretty cute.

Not sure what this one is for, I just had a tiny scrap of brown fabric and some wooden beads, thought they looked nice together and made this as a result...

So, that was my crafting news. Must do some more knitting if the shawl and cardigan are ever going to be finished though!

Title also appropriate as this post has no blue, yet all my knitting is currently blue ;)


  1. Love the brown card.

  2. The Easter card is really cute I love it. I'm sure your knitting mojo will come back soon. XD

  3. You can overdo knitting?

    I love your cards! I'm sure your family will too. That's a really nice thing to do.


Hi, thanks for letting me know you stopped by :D
