Hi all, first of all I'd like to say a big hello and thank you to all my followers, I honestly was surprised to get even one follower but to now have 12 is just lovely, It's a lovely feeling to feel a part of this lovely blog community. I love all your blogs too! So many lovely people and ideas to get inspiration from. So THANKS!
I've been working on my new found sewing skills lately so here are a few pictures of some things I've been making lately, I 'm having a hard time understanding patterns it's like a foreign language to me so I just make it up and adapt as i go aong, sometimes it's been working sometimes not so much!
The picture is a Gorguss postcard I found for 60P!!! in a craft shop and just stuck on some lovely thick craft paper and then onto the beautiful frame my mum found me on a carboot for like a £1, I'm really pleased with it. I'm a big fan of the Gorguss prints, she also does bags and stationary and stuff.
Hope you're all having a great week so far, the weather here is weird o rama! It's like winter one me then yucky humid indian summer type hot the next! Me and May have been doing lots of beading and crating to pass away the time, we've had lots of fun with some paper dolls I found in a clearance book shop for £1 each too! And my little tom boy has been having a fireman sam phase and her grandad spoiled her this week with some toys so that's keeping her busy busy! In between rushed visits to the park when we have a break from the rain it's all she's been playing with lately.
That said I don't know how I've not discovered them before since I love all things dolls, but we've recently discovered Lalaloopsy dolls which I am in love with and my daughter has asked the birthday fairies for one called blossom flowerpot, and a few chocolate coins too please fairies she shouted up to them! hehe! she does make me laugh! I'm so excited to start a collection of them! I can already picture them sat on her bedroom shelves! I love being a mum! You get to be a kid again!
