Bits & Bobs

Well, what do you know!, there is a little bit of crafting going on, just bits and bobs...

Another cushion in the making, flower applique, buttons and a little bit of crochet decoration happening on this one. The framed piece is something I made five years ago now, to celebrate the birth of my niece, I've borrowed it back as Jessica now has a little sister and I am going to do another one to match as the girls will eventually be sharing a room.

I used to do these stumpwork portraits a lot as presents, on this one, above, the dummy is made from something called 'funky foam'.

As it's been a while, I thought I'd better have a little practice, so here is another of this weeks WIP's.

On another subject, Bella, has been on her travels with her new family. You can catch up on her adventures here. This is the lady who made my lovely bracelet and her new blog.

ps, forgot to say, thank you so much for all the good wishes for our anniversary, we had a lovely trip to the Lake District, weather was dry, crisp, and very autumnal, kids had a fantastic time visiting family.
