Lucky Me!

I entered Lynn's fantastic Trash to Treasure 3 year blogaversary giveaway a short while ago and was very lucky to be chosen to receive this lovely treasure... 
My enormous thanks go to Lynn for her beautifully made tin necklace, wonderfully wrapped in vintage dressmaking pattern tissue paper and packaged in a lovely little box.

Baby's 1st Birthday

It's hard to believe that my great-nephew is 1 already!
Just a couple of peeks at the card I made for him...

Little felt birds

I've been hand sewing some felt birds using lovely colours and embroidery silks...
...each one is made using two different colours for the main 
body (one on each side) and a third colour for both wings... 
...and the threads used to sew them all 
together are the same colours as the felts.  
The eyes are tiny little star shaped buttons and some hangers are ribbon while others are plaits of the silks I used to sew them all together.

Boot Cuffs

There's a definite change in the temperature of late, nights are colder and the days are struggling to wake up into full light.  Time to get the winter woolies out!
So with this scrummy thick wool in browns and creams I knitted a pair of boot cuffs for my daughter Holly, finishing them off with a couple of large red button she chose herself.
