Well my wonderful morning turned into a wonderful day .
The fabric I won in a giveaway from Traci at Handmadehappiness arrived in the post.
Don't you love those colours. Thank you Traci.
Then , on my way to have coffee with my friend Loopylou, I had to pick a parcel up from the post office. It was very difficult to wait until I got to lou's house before opening it hence no before pictures-too impatient. It was my Spring swap from Ali-at Magic making hands.
Well that's just what she has(sorry bad pun)
anyway, I just love these tiny flowers as did lou.
There is nothing like buttons, I just have to play with them with lots of oh's and ha's. These were at the bottom of the pretty box it all come in along with the chocolate mini eggs which of course didn't last long enough to be photographed.
These colours are positively delicious, reminds me of sherbet space ships from when I was a kid.
This has made it to my car keys.
Lots of lovely lace, I like the way it is wrapped around the pegs, I'm going to get more pegs and do this with all my lace.
Lou and I had great fun unwrapping all this, especially Lou as she is just about to start blogging and this has given her more enthusiasm. All this excitement was watched by Fat Cat (real name Cleo) who was totally unimpressed. The crochet cotton in the corner of the picture is a tiny part of a job lot Lou got at an Auction in the most beautiful autumn colours, loads of it.
Some people just have the knack don't they
I've had a busy sewing month, although I'm not very happy with one make but still---
The first thing has to be Stanley of course using the pattern from Annie at Felt Fairy.
Mr T loves him so he has a permanent place in the lounge.
This is what i'm not that happy with. It is supposed to be part of the Charlie Harper quilt along (my first ) organised by Flaming stitches but plan A went horribly wrong, so I reverted to plan b and did it by needle felting.
This is the original, sorry about the size.
I think there might have to be a plan c.
Any way here are some of the other thing I have made this month.
My first crochet cushion.
American style lunch bags made with oilcloth. Mine is the one with the houses, the other one is for Little one when she gets home from her travels.
The pegs are from Muddy puddle crafts.
and a summer shoulder bag for me.
Sorry, It's turned out to be a long post hasn't it.
Keep well all of you.
