hopefully the work will be completed by the end of next week, and I shall do some more crafting whilst waiting for it to be finished.
The reason I'm telling you al this is because being stuck in the flat with nothing to do it was the perfect opportunity to craft and not feel guilty that I should be doing something else, I spent 4 days watching craft tv and crafting.
for the first 3 days I stitched a Christmas cross-stich card, it came free with this months World of Cross-stitch magazine, which is normally £4.99 per issue but the publishers gave me a very special offer of 3 issues for 33p each, along with 3 other cross-stitch magazines and quick cards magazines.
The cross-stitch was quite intricate but it was very enjoyable and it helped the 24 hours I took to sew it pass so much more quickly than they would have without this distraction.
Earlier this week I purchased some craft items from a fellow docrafter, they were 2 Creativity magazines with their free gifts, and lots of Forever Friends Christmas stash, epoxy stickers, papers and die-cut toppers and sentiments, the parcel was waiting for me when I got home Wednesday evening and I couldn't wait to start crafting with them, so on Thursday I took all the FF items to the flat and I made 5 Christmas cards with them, the card blanks were sent to me by a docrafter recently.
