So after my last post about not going on to Pinterest until I have made something, I can tell you, quite proudly, that I have been rather productive! Who'd have guessed it?!!
So I have been beavering away on Simple Treasures, and it now looks like this...
Unfortunately I have run out of one of the colours! Don't you just hate when that happens? I emailed Dimensions crafts and they responded straight away and are sending some replacement threads. Fingers crossed the threads don't take too long to arrive. I do have quite a bit of the shell on the right hand side to so, so it's not as if I'll be sitting twiddling my fingers with nothing to do while I await the arrival of the thread.
So, onto the making of some of my crafty pins from Pinterest. Here's what I made...
It's just a recycled sweetie jar (with a new supply of sweeties in it!) with a little pair of felt skates for decoration.
Simple to make and cute too! (well I think so anyway!)
So after all that being good, I now have to admit to being a bit naughty! I blame it all on being Scottish....I just can't resist a bargain, and when I saw these kits with 40% off and shipping at only 1 cent...yes you read correctly, 1 single cent....I just had to get the old credit card out!
I also bought a small set of q-snaps.....which are AWESOME!!! I wish I'd bought a larger set. Next time they are on sale they will be in my basket and winging their way to my sewing basket! :)
The wedding design will be stitched and framed for my friend when she gets married this summer. The lighthouse one is for me ....I think with all the snow and cold weather we've been having that I have cabin fever and just need something summery to do. So you could say that it's for medicinal purposes, kind of an anti-winter anti-depressant! Ok, I know it's a terrible excuse.... I just loved the design, and hey, I've been good and it was on sale!
Until next time....happy stitching!
