cakes and an idea


I've nearly blogged for 500 posts!
IF I plan it right the 500th would be next Wednesday (day off the day job day) so I thought....what better way to celebrate than to host a blog-based craft party?
I'll provide the pattern, instructions and there might even be some cake!
I figure that this way everybody can join in....everyone gets a freebie...they just make it themselves!!
It will involve felt and zips...and the zips WILL be conquered by all!

That sounds like an amazing idea. I'd definately be up for that, even if the word zips still makes me quake! Congrats on nearly reaching 500 posts :-D xx

That sounds like so much fun. What a great idea.

Katy said...

500? Crikey Nora, that's some achievement!!!

Zips? I am quaking, but I'll give it a go!!!

Zips! I really need to conquer those pesky things!

Sounds fabulous, should I run out and buy a zip? Because for sure there are none in my house right now!

Nia said...

Sounds like a paper-and-string genius plan. Can't wait! xoxo

Sounds like great fun - zips sound very scary but I'm sure I have some swimming around the end of my sewing box!

I like it! I have a wee problem of time difference, I think I am 9 hours ahead at the moment, depending what time you kick off i should be able to play along on the day :o)

Unfortunately I will be at work then I have the dentist (great day can't you tell?) but I shall then be home to take part. Sounds like fun, and I don't mind zips.

Kitty said...

There is an exception to every rule, right? Well you know the 'zip' rule? I'm the exception. They terrify me. *blush*
