Now to some of what everyone has been up to this month. As usual this will take two weeks!
Firstly, wait until you see what Cookie has been doing! She has made a set of canisters combining clip art labels and painting.
They are gorgeous! You could use them for storage, as gift containers, to give cookies/biscuits... lots of things.
This is how they started out...
Just a food container! I can think of a heap of containers we have like this. Pringles chips is one. Imagine the possibilities!
Also I love french style labels and they are easy to find on the internet to print. You can label all kinds of things to give them a beautiful look. Cookie has combined them with paint but you could also combine them with floral cut outs or decals/transfers.
You could make cards, tags, labels for boxes, parcels, jars.... so many possibilities!
Cookie you have done it again with beautiful work and easy to make something ordinary and free into something gorgeous! I wont be the only one looking at containers I can make over. Oh! I just thought of baby formula tins! Thank you Cookie!
Jeanette has been knitting! She made a cowl scarf ..
And fingerless gloves...
We are in Autumn here and have all these kinds of things to look forward to. Well done Jeanette!
Mel K already showed us she has been making Cookies bread as I showed this in a preparedness post. She also has been recovering shopping bags as gift bags. I love to recycle these!
Well done Mel I never throw store gift bags!
Fiona has been sewing. She sews such a lot of lovely things and is on a sewing challenge!
How cute are these!? Fiona also send a beautiful bib with Scarlett embroidered on it! Thank you so much! This was a big hit!
I will leave it here this week... I am running late (it is that kind of week!) There is lots more to come next week! If you would like to share what you have been making please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post your pictures on the Bluebirds face book page.
I hope you are having a good week.
I hope also that everyone in QLD is doing well and managing. I think at this stage there is a lot of mess, power outages, road closures and the damage is just being assessed.
Also I want to wave to Patti and her daughter... Patti was really unwell and I haven't heard anything for a couple of weeks so I am a bit worried. Thinking of you Patti! With love.xxx
