Firstly we have Jacqui. She made a quilt for Harper when she was little. It had deer on it! That quilt has been loved and used constantly. Then she made Scarlett a Liberty print quilt that is also used constantly. Now she made Harper a bigger girl quilt!
I can't adequately describe how silky soft and light it feels. It is just divine. Jacqui you have blessed my family with three quilts and they are all heirlooms! Thank you, thank you!
Last week I forgot to include one of Cookie' photos. Honestly, sometimes things just get away from me! But even though this is a picture of a photo of what she did you have to see it! Hand painted furniture...
You are so talented Cookie! How gorgeous! I love it!
This is an idea... as it could really be suitable for a person of any age... good for traveling too.
Jane also finished a shawl for herself while on her tip...
How beautiful! What a productive month you had Jane!
Fiona made reclaimed timber into planter boxes!
I love these and start making a list ... rustic trays, boxes to use for hampers at Christmas, window boxes.... do you have more wood like this!? These are lovely!
Fiona has a blog Saw it, Pinned it, Did it! The title kind of describes my life! She has a lot of craft ideas and also kids party ideas that are wonderful.
They are amazing Cookie! And she made this baby cocoon and little hat with rosebuds!
So sweet! Beautiful work!
Mimi has been creating too! And her daughter is picking up her Mum's ways and making gifts herself for her friends...
And I loved what Mimi said about this... gifts out of "thin air" which is an art really and a great ability! I know just what she means, you can take a little bit of this and that, things you have on hand, and make up something lovely.
Mimi also did plate decorating with her Grand Daughter who came to stay. This little girls would have had the best time! There is so much more. Go over to her blog at A Tray of Bliss (it is always on my side bar)
Thank you everyone! I also have a lot of photos of beautiful cooking. I am going to use these in another post. I love seeing cooking and also I love seeing produce from the garden, your canning and preserving. Actually... I love seeing pantries!
June was a very good month by the looks of it. Now we are in JULY, we are in the second half of the year! This has caused me to get moving and stop dragging the chain with my gift cupboard! But that is next weeks post!
How is your gift cupboard going? What are you working on and what have you planned?
This week I am working on crochet edgings and powder puffs. I was given a fur vest in the palest pink so I cut it up to make powder puffs! I also found I have the right colour ribbon already. These will be the nicest ones I ever made I think!
I hope your week is going well! See you on Friday! I hope to have lots to report by then! xxx
