I Don’t have the Crochet Gene

But fortunately my Mother does! She has just returned Rachel’s crocheted pillowcases in time for the birthday girl this Friday, and they look ever so beautiful.

Rachel is having a Papercraft 12th Birthday Party this Saturday, the guest teacher is none other than the fabulous Suzitee. Rachel is so excited to be having an “actual” Scrapbooking Teacher come to teach at her party. Susan has put together a gorgeous mini canvas project, I’ll share the photos after the big day.

Many Thanks for the lovely encouraging comments about my bags and my online bag shop – you are all sweeties :)

Much Love

Yes i agree Susan is a fabulous teacher. Gosh your mums edging on those pillow cases is gorgeous. You dont need the crochet gene as you obviously got the sewing gene.
Hope Rachels party is a HUGE success.
