Now to more gifts made in July! Once again I am using as many photos as I can and also hoping I haven't forgotten anyone!
Firstly we have an amazing achievement from Marilyn. She learned a pretty square pattern on you tube and just kept going...
Marilyn this is just magnificent and has made me decide on a really big project next winter. This winter I have made a lot of smaller things. Next winter I am going back to a huge project!
Next we have Rosanne. She has been making travel bags which also can be used for produce bags i.e. instead of using plastic to bring home your grapes, small fruits etc from the supermarket.
There are businesses selling produce bags now as everyone is less keen on plastic. So there are a couple of ideas here!
Rosannes son and Grand Son are huge Dr. Who fans. Last year she made one of them a Dr. Who scarf. This year she has made the other...
Amazing job Rosanne! Dr. Who fans will be wanting to order these!
Melissa K has been busy on her gift cupboard. She used tins to make Christmas themed soy candles.
These will be just beautiful at Christmas time! Thank you Melissa for this idea!
Jane has been busy. Even while away on holiday she keeps going!
She made this rug in pineapple stitch which is my favourite stitch!
And two other rugs! This is a testimony to why you always want some portable projects. Then you can just take them with you and keep going even on the road.
I would never leave home without something to work on in the car or where I am staying! Well done Jane these are just wonderful!
Mimi has been making gift tags and painting little roses.
And roses from gorgeous velvet!
Like me Mimi lives to a rose theme! These are gorgeous Mimi!
Jen in NS has been knitting...
I love your knitting Jen and also that you give us ideas for beautiful mens gifts. I just always find mens gifts harder!
Jen and her husband also attended a 1940s themed event. For this Jen made herself a dress and she cleverly downsized a mans fedora hat to be more like a stylish cocktail hat for a woman. Well, it looked amazing (as I got to see!) and I can say they looked so authentically 1940s and are the most gorgeous couple!
Thank you so much Jen. I have seen ladies at the races with a mini top hat with netting. It is the same sort of thing, a downsized mens hat. They probably pay hundreds! Not Jen!
You are all inspiring to me! Thank you to everyone who took the time to take photos and write in.
Now on to a busy August! Can you believe it's August already? This is our last month of winter. Yesterday I saw a lot of blossoms and Magnolia's are coming out! There are signs of spring in the air.
In July my present cupboard really started to fill up. I have just kept going and will show you some of what Im working on next week! xxx
Ps our very own Kelsey was featured over at Strangers and Pilgrims on Earth. This just made me smile as look at her beautiful work! So proud of you Kelsey! xxx
