simple things

Here's a quick project to use up those scraps! I used Amy Butler's business card holder pattern from her website and it's handy to keep those library/membership cards in. I needed a little project in between the quilts which seem to take me so long.


This morning we also managed a little baking for friends who are popping over today. We tried to make a chocolate sponge cake on the weekend and it was a total disaster. Flat as a frisbee and as hard as a rock. So we went for the trusty choc-chip recipe that never fails us!

Such a nice design and so practical - loyalty cards are multiplying in my wallet. This would be a great project for my 11 year daughter.

What a cute little project! I know what you mean with the need to have something small to do ... I often lose my way with big projects.

My cakes nearly always go flat ! Card holders are great. Thank you for your quilt comment, I liked the blue dinosaur the best,

I like the holder and the cookies also look great. I think I would need at least 5 of them for all the 'hardly ever used cards' I carry around.
