FNwF- February

I'm surprised by how quickly February has come around especially with the days on end of extreme heat which at the time seemed to drag on and on. But here we are and another Friday Night with Friends has been and gone. Thanks to Cheryll for hosting.


As promised, I crocheted. My Sweet Pea crochet along is coming along. It should be double this size by now but, it's not. It will be. I'm enjoying the process very much and mostly I get a few strips done each evening, sitting outside when the sun has lost its bite and there are no chores left to do for the day.


Along with the virtual company of the other crafters taking part, I had a real life craft companion this month. Grace has been cross stitching. It's  a good distraction when she needs to take a break from studying for exams which she has been doing this week.


Also as promised, I made some envelopes. This one is from a colouring book. I do not like to colour-in. Never have. So I fold the pages into envelopes and I think they look ok The paper is usually nice and sturdy too which is good. Now I just have to fill all those new envelopes with letters.

Bye for now,
Tracy xo

Good sweet pea colours. So pleasant to have some cooler weather. I moved three months ago to Blue Mountains and we have had many days over 40, even here.

What a great idea to use the colouring pages as envelopes. It looks amazing and certainly sturdy, I am tempted to give it a go myself.
