What a fab week of celebrations we have had. So many wanted to swap ATCs that I had to make another batch of them. :-) I feel so very blessed to have so many blogging friends all over the world. It really made me chuckle that it cost less to send one out to Slovenia via airmail than it did to send them to my friends in England....the world has gone mad.
This is the latest batch of ATCs I made. I've dumfed red poppies onto green prefelt and beaded the centres.
I was commissioned to make a child sized Mr Tumble's spotty bag to go out to a little Grandson out in Dubai with one of my Tiny Tumbles. I also had to make Tiny Tumble a spotty bag of his own too but forgot to snap a picture of it before posting it.....It was a real labour of love because I appliqued the colourful felt spots on the fabric before making the bag up so it took hours. :-) It's fully lined, and has a velcro fastening and I'm pleased to say the lady that ordered it was very pleased with it.
The other bit of fun I've got to share with you today is what I've spent the last few days knitting a log cabin square in between coughing and sleeping and of course watching all the Jubilee celebrations on the telly. [Why am I always poorly when I get a few days off from work?]. If you fancy having a go you will find the pattern here. I'm not sure quite what I shall make it into but I have a feeling I know some little girls that would use it for a dolly's blanket. :-)
And to finish off my Wednesday's post today is a collage of the beautiful flowers in our garden at the mo. We seem surrounded by beautiful colour out there.....just wish I felt well enough to really enjoy it. Thanks for calling by this week. I've had a lot of wonderful ATCs through the post already but will aim to snap a few to share them maybe next week when hopefully I'm feeling rather better.
