Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
Sadly I think the sunny weather is over, well it is for our area anyway, we are forecast rain today, I got most of the holiday laundry washed and dried, the towels were the main think and I got those dry and aired in the tumble drier today, I have one 'White' load to do, but I was waiting on the girls school bits and pieces to finish the load, it isn't too bad if it rains for this load as most of it can be tumbled !! it took me from getting married up to having Sophie and Lucy to persuade Paul to let me have a tumble drier, he now uses it more than I do (mainly because he does most of the laundry)!
Now onto today's amazing crafts......
The first piece arrived on our doorstep with very strict instructions that I was not to look inside it until my birthday! Paul placed the parcel very carefully in the car, right next to him, so he could make sure I didn't have a sneaky peek!! I was so excited to open it on my birthday, I had guessed that Janet had made me something, but oh my goodness, I was not expecting anything as exquisite! Janet you have put so much work into this piece, so much detail and every stitch piece is finished perfectly, there is a stunning Appliqué on both the front and back of this gorgeous piece, the inside has a wonderfully detailed pocket that Vintage Napkins inside, they had such beautiful flowers sewn into them, they are way too precious to use, I will treasure them along with this incredibly beautiful gift, Janet I can only try and explain to you how much I love your gift, it means the world, mostly because you hand made every party of it, thank you so very much xxxxx
Now our Michele had a very exhausting day at the Craft Show she went to yesterday, it sounded like a very long and tiring day! Michele did manage to do a Tonic workshop while there too. I can't believe how good you were Michele!!!!
The first photograph is Michele's, but she didn't buy it, the pretty Stencils and 5 pots of Glitter Paste were Michele's 'early' Christmas present from her Mum in law, what a fantastic gift too, I am really excited to see the projects you make, do you have to wait until Christmas to use it??? Mind you with your busy life at the moment it will be almost then anyway! Hahaha
The second photo is what Michele actually purchased herself.....
The Pretty Christmas Tree die was £10, the rest of the Christmas goodies were from the £1 shop, so total spend for Michele was £13.00 !!!!!! You were very good Michele, I almost wish I could be as good as you, but I just see too many things that I 'neeeeed' !!
Thank you so much for taking time to send the photos My lovely, you must have been exhausted xxxx
Val's Baby Cards are last on the list today, oh my goodness, how cute are they both??!!
What an inspired idea Val, I absolutely love them, I love the Cocktail Sticks with a pearl glued to the end to make knitting needles, I am guessing you used them to knit up your little jumpers, do you follow a pattern?! I bet these absolutely fly off the shelves of the shop Val, as you said they are very tactile, but mostly the are just so adorable, I may have a go at one of these my self, thank you so much Val xxxxx
Well that's all for this week, I am hoping for some time in my Craft room today, I am hoping my Mum calls too, it would have been Mum and Dad's Golden Wedding Anniversary today, so I sent her some flowers, I hope they make her happy and not sad, Dad may not be here but its still a very special occasion, I will always remember the date as their Silver Wedding Anniversary was 4 days before Paul and I got married, I cannot believe that we have almost been married for 25 years! It has gone so fast!
I hope that all those of you setting off on trips have fun making memories, those returning have safe journeys home and those of you that aren't 100% are getting a little stronger by the day.
Love and huge hugs to all,
