I received a gorgeous parcel this week from Me and My Stitches. She makes the most beautiful miniature quilts and Sandi and I have been collecting them each month for our charm bracelets. I've included a paper clip in the photo so you can see just how tiny these are. They are perfect! The bottom two flower blocks are this months charm. I've got myself an extra pineapple block charm (because I just couldn't resist it!!!) and the two heart charms are also extras. One is mine and the other I got for Sandi for her birthday. I think the hearts are just gorgeous.
Each charm comes with a pattern to make a six inch block. I've yet to tackle the pineapple block!!
My bracelet so far... I just love it.
I have been playing around with papers and cards this week and made this cute little box, decorated with lace and some bling.
It was the perfect size for Sandi's charm.
I was having so much fun, I also made some cards and bookmarks....
I made this card for my Mum and I wonder if you can guess what it is???
It is a soundwave... of me saying "I love you" ... isn't that cool? I saw it on FB and they had put the picture of their soundwave into a locket for a loved one and I just loved the idea. Luckily for me, Jack knew how to do this as I had no idea...
Another parcel of gorgeousness this week from Theordora Cleave... Just love the thread holder, and the cute little cotton reels, button and "vintage french" fabrics. Love, love, love it all
Todays photo challenge was "where I want to be:"..... My answer is... "With the ones I love (oh and in Paris, of course!"...and I was very lucky to get my wish....
I had a wonderful day with my Mum yesterday...I can't believe she was actually here, in my house.... it has been so many years since that has happened. She is about a 5 hour drive from here at the moment, so they made the trip out. It was such a wonderful day, catching up on all the news, having lunch, eating some chocolate easter eggs, going through all the stuff I've made, and even doing some mending for her. I love her to bits and I can't tell you how good it was to have her here!
Anyway... back to reality today and the normal day to day activities... sigh!!!
Hope you are having a wonderful day
