a little gift for you (I hope)


Hi all did you have a nice Christmas?

I am slowly getting back to work , slowly , slowly.

Over the holidays I have been trying to work out
how to do PDFs as in the new year I am
hoping to offer some new patterns as PDFs as well as paper.

So you are probably wondering why I have a photo
of the crosswords in the paper here.

I love crosswords and wordgames and thought you
may like a crossword too .

I designed a crafty crossword in PDF for you to print out.

It is all craft related so if you would like to print out
extras for your craft group , go for it !

It does have a couple of swear words in the puzzle
so if you can't handle swearing don't download it .

This is my very first attempt at a PDF ~ I hope it works!

I'd love for you to let me know if you download it
and also what you think.

It's great thanks. I find the easiest way to make PDF's is to download a free programme called CUTE. It installs itself as a printer and when you want to turn a word doc into a PDF just print and choose Cute as the printer and Voila.... Hugs - Fee X

Hi,
I downloaded it without any problems. I think on my computer I can save a word document as a PDF. I will check and get back to you. I have not created one for ages, I have a PDF pattern on my Etsy shop. Hubby helped me as he has something different to create PDF's as part of his job. You can use the picture on my blog, if it does not show up well (poor light here in the winter) then let me know and I will take another for you.
