The time flies so quickly at the mo. It only seems like 5 mins since I was writing my Wed post for last week.
I am still getting wonderful ATCs through my post box and am still expecting more to arrive as yet....some of my swaps couldn't make theirs straight away and it's really lovely to keep getting little surprises through my door when I least expect them :-)
These are the latest ones I've had....
Thanks so much ladies.....each one is made to beautifully and they are all very special to me.
Some of you asked what I was going to do to make a tissue cover for Phoebe to take to school so here is the finished result.....she loved it and is so excited gathering all the things she needs to get ready for school. She has a very special pink toy cat that she has always carried around with her since she was a baby and was thrilled to bits to see the little cat on her school name labels.
This little garden gnome was one of the gifts my hubby had from Phoebe, Lulu and Steve for Father's day on Sunday.....they said it looked rather like Granddad! :-)
We inherited a very old garden gnome from my Dad when we moved in here and usually every couple of years I give him a new coat of paint to spruce him up. Of course when the new gnome arrived little Albert was feeling rather shabby and neglected so this week I sat him on some newspaper on the breakfast bar in the kitchen and got out my acrylic paints, brushes etc and I got to work
......see I don't just play with fabrics! :-)
Here you can see little Albert feeling rather proud of his new coat of paint. He will never be perfect because he is a very old garden gnome but he will always be rather special to me. :-)
I am just going to finish off with a collage I've made of some of the treasures from our garden at the mo. Don't you just love nature?
I have a rail full of sewing waiting to be done today.....lots came in Monday while Jo and I were having munchkin fun time.....I'm so grateful to Jo at the mo for all the extra help she is giving me with the twins....she helps me on the extra twinnie days so I can keep the shop open cos believe me when I say the extra pair of hands is needed to do all I try to do at the mo :-) No twins today so I will be head down sewing all day but they will be back for more fun tomorrow [and so will Jo].
....Love you Jo xxxx
