I have been making layouts!!!! It's been 2 years and some months since my last one was completed. I went a virtual crop in the beginning of the month at Victoria Marie Designs Mighty Network (free to join and 8 dollar for the crop).

I have also been knitting alot as October is Mystery Knitalong Season (you get clues every week and knit them up not knowing what the shawl will look like. This is the back of it as I don't want to accidentally give away spoilers : o.

So one of my pages is about the MKAL, and how I bought a kit for the first time : D. I used the yarn bands (labels) and the yarn used to tie the skeins for embellishments. I also used some of my Crackling Campfire Distress Glaze to color a little piece of wood (in the right corner), and Crackling Campfire to change the color of the letters to orange. Also if you knit, LolaBean Yarn is amazing! I can't afford to buy it regularly, but totally a wonderful splurge now and then. It sells out very quickly. I had to buy mine from Amsterdam : D.

Also a new stamp set : |, because 2020.

For more crafty peeks, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground : ).

Because 2020 alright. We’re back in a furloughed lockdown again and all I keep getting is emails saying ‘we’re open’ which is not encouraging! Meanwhile, you’re scrapping! 8 bucks for a really productive crop is a right old bargain! I love the LO, but the knitting thing is speaking in tongues to me. I don’t know what the final item was, but do you know Sally, your choice of yarn colours was no surprise to me. I remember aaaages ago I questioned your use of Spun Sugar Distress pale, so sort of not there.....well, I now have it in Oxide, spray, ink and I turn to it a ridiculous amount. You were right and I’m happy I’ve remembered to tell you!

Hi Sally, love the knitting, look forward to seeing the finished item. Great job with the layouts, and getting back to scrapping, it's one reason I've never done it, I know I'd never stick to it for long! Stay safe, Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #4 X
