A couple of finishes

As I was decluttering my magazines, I found a kit in a magazine for three mini cards.  Pretty quick sew; though please forgive the size of my french knots:

I love how they look.  They are mini cards, so will put them in my card box ready to use.

I completed another puzzle this week, I find doing puzzles very relaxing.

I also finished off another dishcloth.  Love this colour combo.

Not feeling too good at the moment.  Started coughing at the swimming pool, so thought it was the chlorine, but just generally feel under the weather.  It's the time of year I think?

Lovely cards, well done.
I hope the cough gets better - it can be very wearing. xx

I love your mini cross stitch cards. Always useful to have a box of "readies" for when you need one unexpectedly. 2 Jigsaws from last autumn are languishing, unopened, on top of thd wardrobe! Hope you feel better soon

Yup, the coughing thing is alive and well. I started to feel unwell on Friday and the full blown cought till it hurts started on Saturday.

Lots of hot drinks, hard candies and books. I'm still knitting but feeling sorry for myself.

Love the cards and the dishcloth colour is really nice, I should get my needles out and make some dish cloths as mine are looking thread bare.

Hope you are feeling better soon, it is that time of the year and we (me) have not been exposed to a lot of seasonal bugs for a couple of years, so don't have any resistance to anything out there.

Lovely cards. Hope you don't have a cold or the flu. Maybe hunker down for the day and rest.

Lovely cards and the colours in your dishcloth are great.

Hope you feel better very soon.

God bless.

Your cards are very sweet. I was thinking that you could mount them onto something to make them larger if you wanted bigger cards. I always worry about sending small cards in the mail for fear they get gobbled up by their equipment.
Hope you feel better soon and that's it's not any of the dreaded 'yucks' that are out there.
