I found these really cute bits and pieces whilst shopping this week. They have a whole range in Wilco and everything is really cute. The little drawers are perfect for all those craft bits and bobs.
I managed to finish 24 felt hearts with crochet edges to make bunting!
they are different colour combinations, all plain this time but I am thinking of doing more with some extra decoration or pictures on them - what do you think?
I am going to add a string to them so that there are 12 hearts on each string.
I was also very lucky winning the great give away over at manda's challenges - look what I got! What a lovely prize. I am going to use some of the yarn towards some granny squares for the Sarah London - Crochet a Rainbow Appeal.
It doesn't stop there as just when I thought about how lucky I had been, I had a message from Loo over at jumbles and pompoms who told me I'd just won a prize on her give away too - wow! I couldn't believe it. The books are lovely and there were even a few chocolate coins in there too (they lasted all of 5 seconds after I opened the parcel hehe)
I was so excited
Please do pop on over to their blogs and have a look
On another subject, I did hope to have some sewing to show you, in particular the fabric cushion backs for crochet cushions as I had figured out how I wanted to do it. The problem is that my sewing machine had other ideas and after several hours of trying to sort out the tension, the motor locked - arrgh! Anyway it's off to the menders next week and I will get that tutorial done as soon as I can.
I've started a new flowery scarf tutorial instead and hope to get that on here one day next week so keep an eye out for that as I'm already half way through.
Also there is just today and tomorrow left to enter my give away if you like to win those goodies.
Finally just for the cute factor, here are a few pictures of my kittens. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Rachael Xx
