Happy Friday the 13th……. eeeek! I was wondering how a Friday 13th was going to turn out in 2020, it could have been a disaster, but pretty much it’s okay. I hope your day was too. I have 2 videos for you today, a new card fold, that actually is an old card fold! I have been making these cracker fold cards for many years (nope I refuse to work it out) but I realised I hadn’t made a video on it, so I designed one for you and here it is. Fun, quick and easy to make. Then the 2nd video is the re-run of Week 2 of my Crochet-a-long. It’s been a busy week.

That’s all from me! I’m heading to the sofa for Christmas movies and a blanket! I’ve been feeling pretty ropey all week and I had a cough, so of course I got tested for Covid. I’m negative so it’s just an ordinary cold, for which I am grateful, but I need to put my feet up! I’m hoping it will stay dry enough to get bundled up and do some gardening over the weekend, but if not, I’m sure I can find more movies to watch!

Have a wonderful weekend, I’ll catch up with you soon.
