Well I’m still playing with the gawjus “Gypsy Rose” jelly roll and am making good progress ~ although nothing much to show you yet. However … I’ve also been doing some other stitching that I can show you ~ here’s my first finish for May … Fiona – do you recognise this ;o)??? This is my version of Fiona’s lovely design - “Florentine Doily” … it’s a breeze to make and I think the yo yos look so pretty on it. Ooh look, it’s just right on my hutch with my pretty china behind it ;o). Cute birdy hey Jenny ;o)!!??!I made my yo yos with the ‘Clover’ flower shape yo yo maker using some charm squares that were left over from another project. If you’d like to make one of these sweet doilies you can get the pattern or the kit from Fiona at Mother's Cupboard.
I also got together with my (no blog) friends Valerie and Lynn on Wednesday and we all made one of these ….Would you believe this is made out of 3 tea towels??!! Isn’t it a super shopping bag, and so nice and strong too :o). This t’riffic design is by Judith and was in Handmade magazine a few months ago. It even has a pocket on the front for my mobile phone :o).
So now at least I have a couple of finishes to put on my OPAM list, I wonder if I’ll manage any more this month ;o)?????
Don’t forget Jenny is auctioning her “Beauty is Timeless” cushion this week and all the money raised will be going to -You still have time to put in your bid to buy the cushion!!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend,
