I'm wishing everyone a healthy, happy & fulfilling New Year.
So... what have you got planned for the coming months?
Here at CG&Cs HQ there's already been a flurry of activity with some quick orders.
Judi asked me to do something with her daughter's old roman blind - we decided on a drawstring laundry bag and here it is, ready to go off to its new home next week. I agree with Judi - this fabric is far too pretty to throw away and with the original lining still attached, it makes a good, strong laundry bag.
The newest CG&Cs project is
I ran up this example using my initial and some pretty flower motifs made using my new Sizzix. I think you'll agree - it makes short work of cutting out intricate details like these flowers.
And... think of the possibilities - births, engagements, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays - the list goes on & on.... I've just been playing around with some different fabrics & textures & came up with this today - it would really suit a wedding or engagement style hoop wouldn't it?
I've been trying to complete this keyring since before Christmas - good job my customer had forgotten all about it...!!! It was another project from the book Teeny Tiny Crochet by Catherine Hirst, but to get a larger effect I used a size 4.5mm hook instead of the 1.5mm suggested in the pattern.
I don't think my poor old eyes could cope with crochet that small anyway..!!

So... it's back to the day job for me from Monday & there's some anxious times ahead for not only me but all the support staff that are hoping to get positions next September in the brand new school.
*More news on this when I have it.....
Enjoy the rest of your weekend my lovelies...
See you all soon,
PS: I'm after some bloggy advice. How do you add more tabs to the top of your page? I've seen many with extras like a shop, photo gallery & so on but I've just had a peep around in the dashboard & couldn't work out how to do it..!!
