Joining Kate at Talesfromchiconia for her Scrap Happy gathering on the 15th of every month.
A friend’s birthday was approaching and I knew she would appreciate the recyle/reuse ethos behind this meme, so I went to my vast collection of bits of crochet I have made as experiments with either pattern or colour.
I have a similar collection of art experiments with acrylic paint on paper, so I chose one of these for the basis of the card
Folding the card into 3, I tried out a couple of ideas
I decided to use the flower which is the centre of the Amanzi block, I lined up all the ends and marked the positions of the holes I wanted to make in the card
sitting it atop a ball of yarn to pierce the needle through
Then I sewed the threads through and tied them at the back
The present was some handmade soap I had bought in St Davids, Pembrokeshire, from the force of nature that is Julia Horton-Mansfield who owns the Really Wild Soap Company.
I first met Julia on one of her guided wild food foraging walks
The soaps and card were wrapped up in a page from an old magazine
Pop along over to Kate’s to find others who can inspire you to usefully use up bits and pieces of this and that.
