Stars Stripes and more Crochet...



Here's my make for the Bubbly Scrumptious Blog.  A Congratulations card using star dies and stripy patterned paper.   As always there's a full supplies list and a guide to make it over HERE on the Bubbly Scrumptious Blog.


In other news, I'm still hooked on crochet.  Here's a snowflake I made at my class last week.  The yellow yarn was just to practice, now I'm happy with the pattern I'll be making some in white to decorate the tree and gifts this Christmas.   



And I have a list of projects as long as your arm I'd like to make, most of them from this fabulous book by Nicki Trench.  Don't you just love that tea cosy?
