I've been busy this week making last minute valentines crafts. I never get into the whole valentines fever thing, but, the big man of the house is in Portugal this week on business, so I've been home alone with the little girl and little man of the house. Of course the little man thinks he's the boss at the moment. Terrible two's is still visiting a year later!!!
My first craft was my valentines cards:
I make these cards with birds, flowers and houses for special occasions. I'm not sure if I've posted about these, Christmas time was so busy in the crafty nook. So here they are anyway:
I can never make these cards quick enough, they sell like hot cakes!!
When I saw forgetmenotblues heart bunting, I was inspired to do something similar, So, I dug out my needle felting kit again and made a felted heart garland. I think it just finishes off the mantle piece quite nicely, maybe I will leave it up!!
Two sweet cushion covers. I am so trying to use the fabrics up, to reduce my stash. So I made a couple of scrappy cushions too.
I made a heart shape with a cardboard tube, but they ended up looking like bottoms (tee hee). The kids didn't see it, but, made me chuckle!!!
You may have also seen the crochet cushion on google+. I was sorting my yarn stash out and found some dark grey squares, about a dozen. I can't remember making these up, but it was a bonus!
I am thinking of starting my own little crochet challenge . . . a granny a day. I would like to crochet a granny square every day, of different sizes, and put them together to make a quilt and donate to a charity to raffle off.
I have some very exciting news hopefully coming soon. I will hopefully be signing the lease on my premises for my pottery painting studio. I haven't mentioned this much, because everything is still up in the air. But, all exciting!!
