It's A Boy !!!

 Morning all, well here we are's Friday !! Hope you've had a good week so far.

I went to Excel London yesterday for the hobbycrafts/stitching/crafts show. Had a really good time, as I wasn't going for anything in particular, just to have a look around. Came back with some bargains......woman's weekly had a couple of stands, the first stand were doing goody bags for a £5.00, which contained embroidery threads, wool, craft book, cross stitch kit, tapestry kit, crochet beanie hat kit, plus free samples of toothpaste, eye wash and shampoo (bit random) worth considerably more than £5.00. The second stall were selling magazines and books for £1.00 each. I bought 3 books:- crochet granny squares, Christmas jumpers & felt safari animals.  I also bought a large reindeer crochet kit for £13.00. Had a lovely time. 

Onto today's blog. My friend Jenny has just become a granny for the first time, a little boy, so here is the card that I did for her. I've used winnie the pooh background paper, then using the tonic bear die, I've cut out in blue (for the outline) yellow to fill, and then red to create winnie the pooh's top. I also knitted a blue dummy, which I've attached to the card, but can be put on a cot or pram as a mobile.
Doing a craft fair on Sunday this week, so fingers crossed that I'll be as successful as last weekend.

Have a good weekend. x


  1. Oh Jan, this is gorgeous. Sounds like a fab day out too, xxx

  2. What a lovely card Jan and the dummy is so unusual. Sounds like you had a good day out yesterday makes it all worthwhile. Hope your fayre goes well on Sunday. I'm doing one tomorrow and hope it will be better than last year when the weather was appalling and I made £5.80 for being there 6 hours. I don't want a repeat of that! Best wishes Jackie x

  3. Hi Jan,

    I love the wonderful paper used and the super die cut too.
    Wonderfully created knitted dummy and what a super idea.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
