Le Challenge – Blossom

*Waves* anyone still around? It’s been while I know I’m sorry! Today I’m popping in to share something new…

Crochet Daisy Bookmark ReadingYes I’ve actually finished something! Using crochet if you can believe it…. A Daisy Bookmark which took me an entire AFTERNOON to do but worth it as I’m always losing bookmarks and I needed to brush up on my skills for some commissions I need to get my ass into gear to work on!

Crochet Daisy Flower Reading BookIt is almost too pretty to use! The book props are a bit random… but they are 2 I’ve just finished reading and 2 that are being started imminently and do you want to know a funny thing? For my birthday this week… I now have a Kindle which almost negates the need for a bookmark…

Linking up this baby to Le Challenge as the theme is Blossom and linkingย  inwith the daisy blossom and my blossoming skills (ha ha). Le Challenge if you are not aware of it is run by the lovely Lucy and Nat where on a monthly basis there is chance for any crafter to link up to a theme, show off your makes and possibly win a gift certificate.

I’m going to try and be around a bit more often as I keep meaning to catch up on the books I’m reading and look another piece of shocking news for you………….. I’m SEWING!!! It has been awhile since I’ve had some enthusiasm and energy but I think it’s coming back…

Woodland Owl Hedgehog FabricCan a clever monkey guess what this might be?? I just need to find a cute owl button to finish it off…

 

Le Challenge – Round

It’s been awhile since I participated in Le Challenge and I kept meaning to try and finish something for each month :O Never happened though but this month’s theme is round and I have a few finishes this month that fits that!

2016-02-14-08.31.58.jpg.jpegI stitched this little guy up last night- isn’t he soooooooooo cute? Those who have been around awhile know I absolutely love anything woodland related ๐Ÿ˜€ And the words… well that’s me or was especially on Friday afternoon at work! Struggling with a very bad cold/head thing and expected to pull rabbits out of the hat and such like…..

The pattern is by the lovely Jenny of NerdyMcSticherson who has a lovely Etsy shop full of patterns.

Now obviously it’s in a round hoop… for reference of size the hoop is 4″. I’m really wanting to make a bigger one with a floral border as pastelly flowers go with everything right??

Linking up to this month’s Le Challenge– feel free to go check out everyone’s interpretation of the theme.

Toodstool Pin Cushion (maybe)

I’m quite excited think today is my first link up to Le Challenge something is actually finished in time!

Wednesday I toddled up to St Austell to spend the day chatting and crafting with a friend there. We each had one small project to try- Liz came up with a felt bauble (as seen in the background) super easy and addictive! Will show more when I completed some more….

Helen lent me her Cotton Floss book which has so many projects I want to try including this pin cushion. A couple of hours of choosing felt, embroidering, stitching and stuffing we both ended up with a toadstool ๐Ÿ™‚

Even though we both used the same pattern our toadstools came out different sizes!

Linking up with Le Challenge for this month’s theme of “wood” where you can most often find these ๐Ÿ™‚
