So this week I can show the things that I couldn't show last week because everything is in it's new home now and it won't spoil any surprises. I'll start off with ami swap time!! A quick expanation to those who don't know what this is, the lovely Steph over at Dolly Dolly Daydreams and me swap a crochet or knitted amigurumi (cute softie) at the start of every month. The swap is always fabulous and getting a present every month is great :-)
So for this months swap Steph sent me Daisy the donkey! Isn't she sweet!!!
I love her gorgeous face and the cute bee button in the middle of the daisy :-)
I sent Sally the bear to Steph,
Now I admit, she was hard to part with, I can see me making another one to keep :-)
Also this week was the fabulous Laura's birthday! So her pressies were also in the top secret pile until now.
I stitched her one of the mushroom needlecases, a Union Jack keyring and a crochet owl
and a bookmark too, I loved this quote by Louisa May Alcott 'She is too fond of books and it has addled her brain' :-)
I'm pleased to say Laura loved them :-)
For my makes this week I was making things for my stall at the craft fair this month. Being at a garden centre I seem to have come over all flowery! First up I made some embroidered butterfly brooches,
then the flowers started to appear. Daisy felt hearts, which I really like, I can see these in a few different colours.
Then an explosion of keyrings appeared! These were really fun to make, I got to pull out all my ribbons and make up the colour schemes to suit them, I got a little carried away and I'm not done yet!
So have a great week everyone and I'll be back with the giveaway next week so don't forget to come and enter!
