2 Birthday cards and another hat

Hi Everyone
I have just recently bought some dies from China, they took their time getting here but well worth it.
Apart from being as cheap as chips they cut really well. Here are a couple of the cards I have made so far, I plenty more to do but at the moment things are taking me a while to do as focusing is getting a bit difficult on close up, although I can see at distance, that's not good when you are trying to make cards, my arms aren't long enough LOL!!!

The hat below is similar to the last one I made recently, but a lot smaller. They are nice and quick to make, the flowers take most of the time, but I must admit I love doing them. 

Thanks for looking in. Comments will be really appreciated
Have a good crafting week
Love Sue xx

Hi Everyone

I am so pleased I can keep going with my crocheting until my eyes get fixed.  With the help of my glasses I can keep crocheting but the card stitching is still a bit difficult.  I do a little bit at a time so as not to strain my eyes.  Hopefully won't be too long before I have the ops and get back to some sort of normality.

I couldn't resist doing this pretty little hat. Thanks to Red Haired Amazona on pinterest I got the pattern for it. She had translated from a Russian Lady to 4 ply, I have managed to do this in double knit. I loved doing it the hat was fairly quick to make and I had great fun making the flowers and leaves to decorate it. I am pleased with the results and now have to decide who will get it. It is a childs size so I expect someone will soon claim it.  Hopefully will fit about a 5 - 7 year old, just need a model to check it out for me haha!!

The next item is the lap blanket I made for my daughter at Christmas. The lettering is done by Puff Stitch.  The word on bottom left corner says sweet.  I had done it in dark purple so the word doesn't show up very well.

Thanks for looking, any comments will be appreciated.

Take care Sue xxx
