WOYWW #226 - Craft Clubs

I have been to two different Craft Clubs since I last posted my desk for the infamous WOYWW hosted by Julia.


Last night we made little felt things. I made a red heart and a pink and blue bird. As you can see I was jolly pleased with my achievement.

Everyone worked hard and managed a bit of chatting amongst the silent times of concentration!

Last week got me started on my Christmas Cards using the" Juan" Sheet Method where you use one sheet of patterned paper to make lots of cards. I made 7 cards from one sheet of 12"x12", and 4 from another sheet of 6"x 8.5" plus another 2 cards making 13 in all.


Other things this week are my October Calendar and my Alpha Page for the letter "J".

Even if I'd been home and ready in time, not sure I'd have managed such neat stitching, it just isn't what I can do - they do look gorgeous though!! What's up next month? Happy WOYWW. Helen 14

Your felt makes are gorgeous. We make those little birds at school with the littlies but they cover theirs with sequins and glitter when they've finished and they go on the Christmas tree.
Everyone seems to be starting their Christmas cards this week, I'm going to have to get organised.
Happy WOYWW

That's a lot of cards from one sheet of paper, we may challenge ourselves to that. Your felt hearts are really lovely, no wonder you were so pleased.

Wow BJ - always so busy on your desk. Impressed with your 7 cards from Juan sheet (tee hee) and as ever I'm loving your calendar page. Looking forward to seeing your Tim tag soon... Have a happy week. MMx #46

The Juan sheet method--oh my! That made me laugh until I snorted. I started to make some cards like that the other week but stalled mid-project. It is a good way to get lots of cards made up quickly (well, if you don't give up part way through). You felties are quite sweet and I love your J alphabet page.

Kate Hadfield said...

Wow, you have been busy! I LOVE the little red stitched heart, that's just gorgeous! I had a chuckle about the "Juan Sheet" method too, my kids love that advert!

Lovely needlework and the J page, super!

Christine said...

Love those 'little felt things'!
I also like the idea of making so many cards form the paper..... maybe we should have a challenge to see who can make the most, with half inch squares not counted!!!

I can't believe how much I've missed since the first Juan Sheet. Glad you did a recap and showed everything I missed. Hope you have a better week than I'm having (grin).

Oh I just LOVE the heart and bird, too cute! I bet that was fun to do with others along with the cards you made. You sure got a lot done in the past week! And all very beautiful too! Have a great WOYWW week! Rasz #89

Two great workshops and a happy crafter - what more can you want! Never knew those workshops for making cards from one sheet were called "Juan" - thanks for the heads up.
