As well as making cards the other day I finished off some tags for presents - not that we send many presents. These should last for a good few years. They're made (like the cards) from scraps of card, re-cycled tags and bits from my bit box. Most are Christmas tags but there are some birthday ones in there too. They're resting on my woolly rug

I'd still got plenty of the wool left so I've started a new blanket. Why?

Just because - I'm sure it will come in handy some time. Got to work my way through 'The Stash'!



  1. Absolutely the best reason for starting a knitting project!

  2. I'm working my way through 24 UFOs-some big, some small but all are getting done before I finish anything else!! Have cut the fronts off our Christmas cards ready for my upcycling buddies and I to remake. Happy crafting. Catriona

  3. A blanket is always a nice gentle project to work on, and always so useful especially at this time of year. Gift tags have been made here too. X

  4. Working your way through the stash is a great reason for starting a knitting project. One never knows when a gift could be needed.

    God bless.

  5. So easy to do, I love making tags xx

  6. Much nicer than the stuff that was around on the run up to Christmas. Jx

  7. Well, I always always make tags from my Christmas cards, but NEVER from birthday cards - GENIUS idea Mum, 2017 is my first year of doing this now. Though I'll have to wait until June!
