A Calico Collection

Hello all!  It's a quick one again from me today... just to let you know I'm over at the Calico Craft Parts blog with a trio of favourite projects from last year's Calico creations.  For me, one of the happiest crafty happenings of 2015 was the resurrection of Calico and their Craft Parts in April.  There are so many lovely designs, and they're an absolute joy to play with.


It was tough to whittle it down to three projects - this was the shortlist stage... why not hop over and see what made the cut?  If you don't agree, you can revisit the complete set here.  And happy crafting all!

We don't need to have just one favourite. We keep adding favourites. Our favourite book is always the book that speaks most directly to us at a particular stage in our lives. And our lives change. We have other favourites that give us what we most need at that particular time. But we never lose the old favourites. They're always with us. We just sort of accumulate them.

As I said in my previous comment Alison, each one of our creations has it's own unique qualities and they are always a joy to see.

Hi Alison, sorry for missing your last posts.. It's difficult for me at the moment to keep blogging even with my best crafty friends, hope you understand.
But I'm very pleased to see again all these projects, I understand hat you can hardly choose only three, they are all so fantastic!!! I love especially the two last pieces, really amazing, but all the collection is fabulous!
Hugs and Happy New Year again, Coco xx

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I'm not one to play favorites... maybe favorite of the moment, subject to change in a heartbeat. LOL! I hate password hints that involve favorite color, food, city, book, etc. Who knows what I was thinking that day!?!!
