Today I finished my second card (of 2!!!) for the Bubbly Funk 25th club challenge, so decided to blog them now, rather than forget all about them!!! The theme this time was a sketch!

I've been having a go at wire crochet after crazydaisy (from BF) sent me the pattern! I found it very difficult to work with and almost impossible to get even stitches!! It looks quite effective from a distance I think, but doesn't stand up to too close an inspection!!

I then tried it using thread, which was a lot easier but it turned out very small!!! My next attempt will be with thicker thread!


Now I'm off to do a bit more sorting for the UKS cyber crop which is approaching rapidly. The mystery kit arrived today, so I must get my head round that now!! Bye for now.

Great Christmas cards (mine keep slipping to the bottom or my to-do list somehow!). Fab crochet and I thought the same as Karen - the wire one would make a lovely bracelet.
