More swapsies and sporadic things...

Well following on from last week, I have now received my second magic ball parcel from my second swap partner Bee Happy..

I've had a miniature disaster and my camera has died, I'm pretty gutted as there are photos on there I can't retrieve but I am lucky that I do have an old camera to fall back on.  I took lots of photos of my ball as it was all wrapped up as it looked so yummy, but they've gone :(
Just imagine a big fluffy ball of pinkness all wrapped in a big pink ribbon, smelling like heaven.

This is what was inside, isn't it delightful...

 Gorgeous pink chunky wool in my favourite shade of pink!  A beautiful handmade trio of fishes for my bathroom, a handmade lavender bag, ribbons, buttons, clips and soap. 

All gorgeous, thanks so much x

Remember the felt roses I received from Kerrie earlier this week...

 
..well I couldn't help but turn them into pin cushion rings, my current obsession;


my little felty rings were featured on the Mollie Makes facebook page this week *squeee* many thanks to them and to Scented Sweetpeas for this mmmwaahh!

In other news I've been hookin' ~ the nice hookin'
I made myself a new dishcloth, an apple slice...


It's 100% cotton so should wash well, it's got a new home on my draining board. Woe betide the first one in the house to use it to mop up ribena or some other staining substance!

 p.s. the green bottle is washing up liquid, I hate having a plastic bottle plonked on the bench so I decanted it into this stoppered bottle.  I saw something similar in Ideal Home Magazine last month, but my bottle was £1.99 from Aldi ~ might be nice with chilli oil and such in...

Last month I made some girly bunting and a little patchwork cushion for a lovely little girl, well she was rather pleased with it and popped into work with a little thank you gift, bless.
Her daddy sent me this photo of her with her new cushion and bunting, and was happy for me to share it with you,

isn't Niamh a darling?

I've had a few enquiries about the hexie kits this week, I have popped a few back in the shop if anyone is after one.  If they run out feel free to contact me and I'll make some more up.

Told you it was a sporadic post!
Right I'm off to look for the receipt for my poorly camera ~ whats the chances it's the only receipt I didn't keep?



~ ♥ Back Soon ♥ ~

Are the photos on your other camera stored on a memory card that doesn't fit into your old camera? If you buy a media card reader (about a fiver) you should be able to get them off still. Worth a try? xx

OOh more fabby makes - love the apple dishcloth!!! Thanks for the heads up re: the hexie kits - just been to order one - although I have a feeling it might go on my to do pile and that will be something else to confess to LaaLaa - lol!!

Scented Sweetpeas said...

Loving your sporadic post :-) You are more than welcome re the shout our on Mollie Makes page, they found your photo on flikr and I just pointed them to your lovely blog. xxx ps love the apple crochet, where did you get the pattern?

I LOVE your rings. They're fab. The little apple dishcloth is a great make, isn't it? I've got one at my kitchen sink too. xxx

I learned today that when you order Mollie internationally they don't ship the craft kit. Boo to that but I"m still in love. As I am with your fingernails - maybe the cutest thing ever!

I agree about trying a card reader. I must admit I take off my photos of my camera regularly as you never know. Then again, I lost a few month's worth when my laptop got pinched. Hope you get your camera issue resolved. Loving the apple dishcloth and bunting, et all, great makes.

Filler Creations said...

Loving the dish cloth! Its lovely!

As a recent customer for one of your great Kit's I just wanted to let everyone know how wonderful they are! I have alreday stitched all the squares that came in the kit and i have made a couple of "flowers" and patches. I have put a couple of pictures and a link to the shop on my blog.

I also got the free ring kit from Mollie Makes and i will be attempting to make some rings that are half as beautiful as yours!

Thanks
Sharon

Wow - love that apple!! But, yeah, I wouldn't want to use it as a discloth!

abatha said...
