Notecards. As a long time crafty person, I have way too many supplies for creating unique and interesting notecards. Yet somehow, whenever I need to send a note, I don't have any already made. I have two great printers, and have made notecards as gifts in the past. I printed on watercolor paper, cut out the images, maybe cut out a matlike background, didn't always have a suitable envelope ... you get the picture.
Last month I discovered that Avery now makes matte white notecards, and I love how prints come out on the matte paper.
So now I have these, ready to send out with scarves that are late gifts for that big holiday that passed about three weeks ago. You probably can't tell, but I added Swarovski crystals on the corners of the images.
Casting on (slowly):
I am making the Baby Bonnet from Joelle Hoverson's Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I say slowly casting on because they call for a cable cast on, and it seems a little awkward to me. Also, this Rowan Kid Classic seems to split a little.
We do not have sunlit pictures here at Chez PC today, because of "Extreme Fog".
If anybody reads this, I need some technical help. Yesterday I tried really hard to sub to Bloglines, with two different valid email addresses, to no avail. I was so busy trying to get it to work that I missed this fabulous sunset that Eilene saw somewhere near my neck of the woods. (Scroll to the bottom of her post.) Update 1/22/06: I emailed bloglines and they fixed the problem. Thanks everyone for your help!
Yesterday I was honored that Emily stopped by my little ole blog. If you haven't already, you should check hers out. I only met her once, very briefly, in person. Not only was she nice, but she is a quilting rock star, and produces a seemingly infinite number of lovely hand knits. I am convinced that she is either super human, or has Brownies living in her attic who finish her work for her at night.
