It's taken me nearly 2 weeks to get these postcards done and they aren't even complicated.
I decided quite a few weeks ago that N would be for Norwich stitch and that I would use some plastic canvas that was given to me from my Nan's stitching stuff after she passed away. Since I decided this I've seen several magazine articles with some beautiful canvas work featuring, yes you guessed it, Norwich stitch among others.

- Finish N postcards
- Start O postcards
- Start April bag
- Make ATC for Anna's challenge
There are a few more things I'd like to add to the list but Saturday will be all day at the workshop so Sunday will probably be and out and about photography day with dh, so again I'm not really sure how much I will be able to get done.

Here is something that I did get to finishing off today the next kitty on the cross stitch. It's been a couple of weeks since I've gotten to work on this so it's been satisfying to make a bit more progress. Here is the whole
and the close up.

It started off innocently enough I was driving by the craft shop and thought I ought to replace that block of Fimo that I used when making the skeleton doll a few weeks back. Somehow I found myself in the knitting section and before I knew it a pattern book and some wool had jumped in my basket. What were you doing with a basket Angelcat when you only went in for a tiny block of clay? I hear you cry, well sadly I don't have an excuse for that I guess I was doomed from the start.
This pattern book from Sidar really caught my eye, here is a picture of the back which shows a few more of the designs.
Sadly most of the tops would look horrendous on my large frame but I really love some of the hats and there is also a really cute bag too. Hopefully it won't be hat weather for too much longer but there is always next winter to plan for. I bought these to make the stripey beret middle right in the picture above. If it goes ok then I think I will also make the flower hat (bottom left) and the bag (picture below). If I had the perfect figure I would dress like this. Maybe in the next life.....
