This year I made never-ending cards to send to the couple of people I send a card to, so I thought I would share one with you.
And to finish I will share with you the cake I made this Easter.
Not a simnel cake this year. My son saw a cake on a food programme on TV and really wanted to have one (and it also includes marzipan!) so I made one for him.And a closer look! A plain and chocolate Battenberg with nine sections instead of the normal four!
I made some crochet cards at Christmas with removable stars but it seemed to me after I had got into making bookmarks that cards incorporating removable bookmarks would be even more worthwhile.
Now I am not really an Easter card sending person but where people have sent me cards in the past, I have felt the need to respond. So I decided that Easter cards incorporating cross bookmarks would be something I could make for this year as I only had a few to send.
Now one of the Easter cards I get is from people who are, as far as I know, not at all religious, so for them I made this card. Quite quick and simple because I wasn’t sure what to make and as time was running short (they live in the U.S.) I had to buckle down and produce something. 🙂
But I had already started on my cross bookmarks for my christian friends.
Finally I got out a smaller hook and made a cross with a contrasting edging using the second pattern and a picot edge this time.
This was acceptable.
At first I hung the bookmarks on my Easter tree but it the meantime I went to ‘Paperchase’ and bought some folded card and matching envelopes as I had for Christmas.
I would have preferred a slightly less acid green but I bought three lots anyway, brought them home and printed a greeting inside.
Then all that was left was to attach the bookmarks to the front of the card, which I did in a similar way to those I made at Christmas but more simply.
Giving me three cards to send to people.
Realising that up to now I have not made any bookmarks for myself I made a cross bookmark using the second pattern with my pastel rainbow mix #20 cotton.
