Christmas in April

Hi all a very quick post from me today I am a little late this week with my ABC Christmas challenge and Christmas cards with Sketches....
Heres why...

I was already to get everything finished on Monday in time for 
my DT at Top Tip Tuesday and also my CCWS and ABC Christmas
and then.... I smashed my head on the corner of a unit... We were cleaning out the main shed on our allotment and Efisio (my Husband) had gone to take a load of wood to the other shed and I was moving some bottles and bits bent down and wack!! Feeling sore and felt sick! Headache from hell!! 

So sadly I missed my TTT creation as it was not finished!
I had finished my CCWS card 

But had to finish my ABC CHristmas Challenge project which is
H for Home
I chose to make a Crochet snowflake garland

I will add my Challenges I wanted to play later today!
rushing off to my Parents now!

  1. Ow that looks painfull Samantha .. hope you feeling better soon.
    Your card is great and I love the snowflakes ...

  2. That looks really bad hon, hope you're feeling better now, if not you might have concussion?
    Love that card, but the snowflake garland is LOVELY. I really like that. It would fit lovely into my white christmas theme collection of decorations ... ;0)

  3. Oh your poor love :0( No wonder your creations were held up!! Fab crochet snowflakes. I am teaching myself and have managed a crochet box so far! Take care xx

  4. Ou..chhhh!!!!!!! That looks really painful Samantha. An ice pack should help to reduce the swelling. If your headache doesn't ease off, or you feel sick again, please get your hubby to take you to A&E won't you? Like Annette says, you may have concussion.
    Your projects look lovely - the card is very pretty, and I'm so envious of your crocheted snowflakes. They look wonderful. I can't crochet at all!
    Take care honey,
    Hugs, Helen x

  5. Wooo I hope you feel better now... But your card is lovely...

    hope you're feeling better soon ,,, looks like a nasty knock and am thinking you will have a black eye by now :-(
