Royal Norfolk Show 2008

Royal Norfolk Show 2008

on Thursday we all went of to the Royal Norfolk Show, for those of you that don't know this is the county's major agricultural show. We thought it was about time we went as we have lived in Norfolk 7 years next week & have never been.

Fork Flowers


HOW TO MAKE FORK FLOWERS
These little flowers come in handy to decorate small items or when you need a pom-pom to match your yarn.
Years ago my children spent many a creative hour making colorful fork-flower necklaces.
You will need a fork with four tines or prongs. You can use a metal or plastic fork. When using a plastic fork, do not pull the yarn too tightly as this will bend the tines of the fork resulting in a smaller flower.
To make the flowers:
Cut a 7-inch piece of yarn and place between the center two prongs of the fork. Hold with left thumb and index finger. This is the tying strand.
Using yarn directly from the skein slip the end of the yarn under your thumb to hold for the first few rows. Bring yarn up through center prong then weave back and forth over and under the prongs. Continue to weave pushing yarn down tightly until the entire fork is filled. Holding the weaving in place with you left hand cut the yarn.
Have someone bring both ends of the tying strand up to the top of fork and tie a knot. Now slip the yarn off of the fork while the knot tight is pulled tighter. With a little practice you may be able to do this by
yourself. Tie a second knot to hold. I have found that by dampening the tying strand, it will hold the first knot more securely until the second knot is tied.
Fluff up the result and you have a small flower. Clip the loops and trim for a pom-pom. To make a two-toned flower or pom-pom use two strands of contrasting yarn together when weaving.

A

friend is someone we turn to when our spirits need a lift


A
friend is someone we treasure for our friendship is a gift


A
friend is someone who fills our lives with beauty, joy, and grace.

And
makes the world we live in a
better and happier place.There
is a miracle called friendship, that dwells in the heart.
You do not know how
it happens or when it gets it's start.


But

you know the special lift it always brings.
You realize that friendship is
the world's most precious gift!

Send
this to all your friends, no matter how often you talk,
or how close you
are, and send it to the person who sent it to you.




Let
old friends know you haven't forgotten them, and tell new friends you never
will.


Bind it all



I have just bought a bind it all machine complete with accessories & now cant wait for it to come, I saw it demonstrated at a trimcraft demo a couple of weeks back & sucumbed to temptation after selling some bits & pieces on e-bay. So hopefully it will come tomorrow.
Anyone with any hints tips or projects to show, please leave me a comment with a link to your projects.

Whilst I was blog hopping i found this great challenge site, I have never done one of the card making challenges so I thought I would give it a go.


The background is from a stampin up wheel run twice along the card, with a gap in between for the ribbon. The matting & Layering is done using Bazill Bling another of my favourites.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
