Our first Friends having fun swap

 For our first FHFS we did a dresden plate project and my partner to send to was the lovely Mel.
So this was a challenge for me as i have never done a dresden plate before and they had me rather scared,but once i got going i quite enjoyed making them.
I sent Mel a dresden plate table topper and a glass jar with it own personal reversible cover and a coffee table book which i forgot to take a pic of.
Mel has contacted me to let me know that she loves her parcel so that makes me happy too.
 This is the reversible vase cover which is a Lisa Pyke design of cubbyhouse and is in homespun mag no 96 vol 12.5 and i have made this a few times now and love this pattern,i must make some for me.
I have really enjoyed this swap,our next one is a tilda swap,so i had better get started,lol.

Enjoying Time with my Grandies

 My oldest GD Madison found a link on utube for making these bows and while in spotlight with her mum bought a bag of hair clips so when she came over to stay this week she asked me if i had any material for her so that she could make these bows.
Lol now let me think now do i have any material ,lol,she had a ball going through my stash finding material that she wanted to turn into bows.
Madie made about 16 and Elissa made about 5 i think and i made one for Adie also ,i was surprised how quick they are to make and the girls had no problems using the hot glue gun,here is the link to how to make bows.
