How are you all doing? Well I hope! I designed this pattern when several hospitals put out appeals on social media. They have asked crafters to make pair of small flat hearts for the patients they are currently looking after.
The idea is that one heart stays with the patient and one stays with their family. It allow them to feel close to each other at a time when visiting is not allowed due to social distancing measures.
If you want to make hearts for your local hospital, please only do so if they have specifically asked for them. Not all hospitals are accepting the hearts and this is due to their individual policies.
How have you been. Are you climbing the walls yet? Are you looking ahead at a long weekend of quarantine?
To keep you entertained for a short while I have created some digital colouring sheets. There are five in total, which can be downloaded for free. Just click the link below to download the pages. Then print them out and colour them in!
If you decide to colour in any of the patterns please take some pictures and share them with us on social media!
Welcome to another calligraphy review! This time I am happy to say that the review is a lot more favourable. Unfortunately social distancing and COVID-19 has put the Settlers’ events on hold for the time being we are looking forward to a time when this is all over and we can put on our fantastic event at a later stage.
It can’t have escaped your attention that the world is in an unprecidented state of crisis.
Many more people are staying in their homes than ever before and while we all enjoy a bit of quiet time to reflect and relax, for some of us the length of time we are staying in our homes can be very wearing.
I will do my best to create as much free and entertaining content as possible for you to stop you climbing the walls.
For the first time in what feels like forever the sun is out! Hooray! It makes a change from all the rain we’ve been having.
I’ve been busy doing a fair bit of sewing over the last few days, not something I normally do. However I am feeling more confident with my sewing skills so maybe it’s true what they say; practice really does make perfect!
I hope you’ve had a crafty and productive weekend! I’ve been super busy, this week (as always) with lots of Settlers activities and making a lot of content for the blog!
I am so close to finishing work on the mohair poncho, but the last bit seems to be taking the longest! I am deaparate to get it finished so I will leave this introduction here and get on with my round up!
I think I have found a new crafty addiction, yes, another one. Today I went to try needle felting for the first time in a workshop at Scotch Lodge Farm. I am happy to report I came home with a pair of needle felted toadstools that I am very happy with. It is possible that I may have gone home via the craft store to pick up some needle felting supplies, but this is of course just speculation.
You thought I had forgotten didn’t you? It’s ok, I forgive you. It’s been soooooo long since I bought, unboxed, made, reviewed and published a new tail and fins for the Aldi So Crafty crochet shark kit.
