How time has gone on!

I’m having one of those “I’ve finally sat down” moments. It’s been a while – 2 months to be precise considering my last post was about my little boy being 6 months old and he is now a cheeky 8 month old who is trying to crawl and drooling everywhere with teething!

 

Craft wise it’s been slow but steady progress. I have been working on a doll knitting pattern by Jean Greenhowe which I blogged about here. She is coming along steadily now but I need to speed up as she is a birthday present for my niece who’s birthday is in July. Here she is so far:

And here is her dress:

So that’s where I am with wooly stuff.

 

In other crafty news I have tried my hand at Fimo again and had some fun making lots of keyrings inspired by youtube videos, but here is an example:

Quite cute and fun to make..

 

It was also my niece’s birthday and my sister in law’s birthday so I made two different cakes:

One Fairy Castle for for a fairy!

And a jewelry box. Still can’t work out how I made both of these in one afternoon!?!?

 

That’s about it for now but I am about to do some draft posts on Filoxfax and also The Leather Satchel Company where my very special bag was made for me!!

 

Happy Crafting!

Proper update with lots of photos!

This is attempt 2 at this post. WordPress crashed as i got to the end, not impressed!!

Anyway, life has been hetic with house renovations and lupus being a bit naughty but in-between all that i did a few bits of baking and crafting. This post will be more pictures than words as i’m recovering still from lupus fatigue.

So in March it was mainly baking, only a couple of things due to hetic life things but here we go..

Moving into April was exciting as my Mum bought a new sewing machine and has passed her other one to me!! Cue lots of happy dancing from the sofa (was still poorly..) so i started planing sewing projects and when i was a bit more upright i started! Here is what i made.. 

image

Wool bag which was quilted, this is my first non quilt project and i was a tiny bit proud of myself with how it turned out!

image

Peg bag! Can you tell i had left over material?!

image

A purse that isn’t finished yet as i need to sew buttons on. I plan to make lots of these in pretty colours for my next craft fair.

Then it was time to get ready for Easter things!

image

This is for my family. I made the little paper baskets, so easy to do and very sweet!

And finally an Easter cake for our family tea tonight.

Hope everyone is well and have a good and happy Easter!

Next post will be all about colouring!! I can’t be the only adult who likes to colour?!

Happy Crafting!
