Well, Good Afternoon lovely people :0)
How are you this windy, grey Friday?
I thought I would try and fit in a quick blog post before the rush of the school run..
This is just a few Ta-Daah moments that I keep forgetting to pop on here.
I am taking part in the monthly make with Annie the Felt Fairy , but I so
keep on forgetting to post my makes. Do you get like that?
I kinda get in this making mode, and make, n make, n make, then forget to pop them on here, or even in my shop!
i just have 'em all stacked up until one of my clan say "Mum/wife (;0)) are you actually going to DO anything with these? " LOL
Well, here they are (as long as bloggers playing )
This is a lovely mixed mohair crocheted brooch, with a little vintage 'clear with gold dots on' button in the middle. The back was felted and had a brooch pin sewed on.
remember my bunting that was blocking on my ironing board in my last post?
I finally managed to make a chain and put it up.
Took me ages to get this photo, as I had to get it at an angle where you couldn't see how badly my windows need washing... LOL :0)
And for once, the sun was shining...
Next is my Rag crocheted bag that I made in early January.
I've been using it a month, and it just gets better, and more cosy :0)
Not sure that the colours look very pretty in these photos, so you'll have to take my word that they go in the 'real world! LOL
And below is a picture of the button closure..
I made this button from some embroidery off of one of my girls 'toddler' dresses!
They used to sometimes have matching dresses when they were very young, and being the hoarder that I am, I've kept it all and I get all the 'good usable bits' off of them all for my crafting..
I'm pleased I don't know exactly who's dress it came from, so it reminds me of both :0)
Below is a picture of my latest thrifty book find.
OOOoooo...., this book is scrummy!
It's got all the recipes in from all the books that you used to read as a child..
You know, all the delicious foods that used to be in them, the picnic food, the midnight feasts, all that type of thing..
Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl...
It's even got recipes from my favourite books..The Little House on the Prairie series..
MMMmmmm...I've got to try 'em :0)
Well, that's all the photos that I could get on here today.
It's not actually this afternoon before the school run anymore, it's early evening!
So have a lovely weekend everyone.
Don't forget I won't be around next week, (hospital) but hopefully I'll speak to you all next weekend.
Send hopeful wishes our way on Tuesday!
Take care and wrap up warm,
Love Donna xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
