Now and then I post for some of the ladies who do not have Facebook here and this gives us even more ideas and inspiration! The next two weeks I have additional posts from both Kelsey and Kelley.
Today first we have Jen in NS. Jen made knitted mitts for my Aunt! I had written to Jen as my Aunt was mad over her stunning knitting especially the cables. And Jen made my Aunt these cream mittens! This was just so lovely. So they traveled all the way from Nova Scotia to Adelaide!
Also here is a watch cap that Jen made for Mission to Seafarers and trimmed and embroidered kitchen towels.
Plus slippers to put away for Christmas time for her youngest daughter...
Next we have Tania. Tania took the pincushions several of us have been making and made them into a bouquet of flowers. This could be lovely as a way of giving one to each guest and decorating a table at the same time, like a bridal shower maybe!
Beautiful idea Tania! So pretty!
Cookie has been making little bunnies for Easter and all from fabric scraps. She used a free pattern found on The Enchanting Rose blog. These are her gifts for all the toddlers in the family.
I thought this also might make a lovely table centrepiece, or bunnies might be beautiful place markers on a set Easter table... so many possibilities!
And lovely bookmarks like this!
Kaye they are just so pretty!
Also Aly had been telling me how she was learning to sew. I love it when I hear about leaning new skills! She has already learned so many sewing techniques as you can see here in her Christmas tree...
And her table runner...
Aly you are doing the most wonderful job you should be so proud!
This leads me to... if there is a craft you want to learn just do it! I hear so often how someone wishes they could crochet or whatever... really mostly you are a day away from basically knowing how to do something like crochet. After that it just takes practice! You can find free tutorials on almost anything, You Tube is my usual source of instructions.
I hope I did't miss anyone! Next week we are going to see what Kelsey has been up to as she has been creating so much that apart from her Etsy store she has had a market stall. Her ideas were so good I thought many of us might be inspired by them. the following week we are seeing what Kelley has been making and you will love it!
I hope you have had a good week of making and creating, using things up and setting things to good use! xxx
