Cards and Crochet update!

What a cold raining night it is. Well I'm sat here waiting for the Tesco shop and what better way to pass the time than a spot of blogging (But to be honest with you I don't need an excuse to be sat here blogging and looking at your lovely blogs!)

Well I thought I would post some of my cards on here, basically my job is to illustrate greeting cards..most of the time I get to paint pretty pictures but I still get nervous and worried when I paint sometimes! I have had in the past very stressful jobs, so I am very grateful to be doing what I am doing.

Anyway enough babbling on about that. I am still battling with my crocheting, at the moment I seem to spend my time on you tube watching people with fingers that seem to bend the other way russling up Granny Squares in 9 minutes, and I'm sure they are slowing down for the demonstration. I mean 9 minutes! 9 minutes!

Sorry...but I am determined that by the end of the weekend (and not TOO many G and t's that something resembling a square will appear...)

Keeping your blogging fingers and toes crossed for me!

Byee for today!

Love Samxx

Hi, I love your blog! It feels like home. I made a Sock & Glove rabbit a while ago. It's posted under Embroidery on my blog. I'm struggling with knitting right now, so I feel your frustration too!

Never thought of looking on U-tube. My squares are coming along, but can only manage 3 or 4 night before my fingers cramp up. I think Holly's blanket may be smaller than I'd hoped.
Keep at it.
Us crochet learners need to stick together.
Very pretty cards by the way.

You are doing so well keep it up!
Those cards are so pretty, my son is doing his GCSE art course work at the moment, he would like to do a job that involves Art.
Love Lou xxx

Hello Sam!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I've had a lovely time visiting you, your cards are gorgeous.

I have a cat too, goes by the name of Dudley,and I've just spent time this morning trying to cover up some of his claw damage to my dining room chairs! I still have 5 more to do,but at least I've made a start.
Very cold and rainy here this morning,but I must admit that I love this weather!

Have a lovely day and a good weekend. :O)

Love your blog - it is the first time I have visited

I am now one of your followers.

I'm also trying to teach myself crochet but havent got on to anything as complicated as a granny square yet - will be really interested to see how you get on.

Love your cards - you are so talented
