Hello there everyone,
Well, this week I worked away on Cara's Mermaid, designed by Joan Elliott! She is such a slave driver lol
After deciding she wanted beads and sparkle (just like mummy's Summer Fairy) I managed to complete her Mermaid for her! I felt so bad that she has had to wait so long for it! However she was totally delighted with the results :D
Finished 15 February 2016

For this months Gifted Gorgeousness (sorry the posting is a little late!), hosted by Serendipitous Stitching, along with the Mermaid stitching for Cara ... I'm sure this will count as a gift :D ... I started a chart that I bought with a gift voucher, for Sew and So, which James and the kiddies gave me for Christmas. I bought :-

I cannot wait to get a bit more done on this chart as I love cross stitching and I am just getting started on my sewing machine, so its 2 crafts all rolled into one ... perfect!!
Here is a clear photo of the stitched gift I did for one of Katie's penpals ... I did the stitching in January during DUCJFC2016, then stitched it onto fabric using my sewing machine :D Great fun!!

Plus handmade pom-poms for Katie and Cara's hair :D
I have also started a birthday gift for a pen-pal but I will not show it off until March! Just in case she sees it on her first!!
Last but not least, Katie and I spent all day yesterday writing letters to our penpals and we produced this pile of mail, which I will go and post off shortly :D
|Huge pile of letters!|
That's it really, we have had a few lovely days off school due to mid-term break. So we chilled out and relaxed and didn't really do much at all! everyone did what they pretty much wanted which was excellent! Also meant I could get Car's mermaid finished!! No doubt there will be more requests coming my way soon lol
Have a great day all, and keep safe out there!
With love and hugs
