This fortnights challenge over at Lets Craft & Create is "Trim The Tree".

For this challenge I have made a quilted bauble.  Even though there was alot of cutting, ironing and pinning I had alot of fun making this.  If you would like to have a go at making one of these check this tutorial out at http://crafterwithoutacat.blogspot.com/2009/08/ornament-tutorial.html.  This is not the only tutorial I looked at.  There are many other tutorials out there and many variations.

Please come on over and check out our blog and join in the fun.

Another fortnight has come around quickly (and I still have not made a start on my Christmas cards).  Maybe this week.

This fortnight challenge over at Let's Craft & Create is Reuse, Renew, Recycle.

For this challenge I wanted to make something a little different so I decided to reuse a pre-decimal New Zealand stamp and make it into a necklace.

Sorry for the poor quality of the necklace photo but the light was not good.

I am looking forward to you coming over and joining in on the challenge.  See you there.
