Envelope and Knitting

Hi All and happy weekend. Hope you enjoy all that you have planned and thank you for your visit.

There a mail art challenge at PaperArtsy and I have just time to join in before it closes tomorrow

I used one of Astrid's freebie papers and they are beautiful enough to just use on their own for an envelope but as it is for a challenge I did do some stamping on it after printing it out onto a 5x5 inch envelope. Thank you Astrid for your kindness.

Lots of small stamps added in Distressed ink.

I always knit when I am watching television or I just fall asleep. Here are lots of hats I have knitted and I am hoping a neighbour will take them to the cancer unit for the patients who lose their hair. The neighbour is just finishing her chemo and her hair is growing back--I am so pleased for her. People give me lots of wool and I just love making up things I can use it for.

Have agreat day

Love Chrissie xx

Wow- your page is beautiful, but your knitting is amazing. I love to knit but haven't done as much of it this year so far as I would like. I am impressed you made so many colorful and fun hats! Hugs-Erika

You volunteer to support SO many wonderful causes. No wonder you are much loved in both the real world and the blogging community. Those hats are more than likely a godsend to people who have lost their hair.

Your decorated envelope is fabulous. I'm super impressed.

Great idea to write on the paper and even use it as an envelope. Beautiful hats and I'm sure they will be received well.
