A special wish

Lots of yummy fun for this challenge at The Lollipop Ladies .

Challenge 46 - Turkish Delight and Squares . If it's not coated in chocolate (my favourite ) then it's usually dusted with icing sugar and does come in lots of colours ,not just pink .

The poppy stamp is from Abi's Crafts and I've double stamped with white and pink to represent the Turkish Delight and the icing sugar,the sticker sentiment was a prize win as was the flower.

Who lives at the bottom of my garden ?

Hello ,Hello ,can you see me down here in the grass. At the moment I'm very small but one day I will be big . My fungi friends are with me making sure I'm not lonely. Who will I look like when I grow up ?

Could it be me ? The spots look the same.

My spots are the wrong shape .

I'm tall and flat.

Just a bit of fungi fun in my garden.

Just Purr- fect

This is one of those projects I really enjoyed doing. I made one of these a few years ago and added a tiny mouse sitting next to the cat. I changed the word LOVE to FRIEND and gave it to a lovely friend who was going back to live in Florida.

It was very easy to do and I can see myself making another one and perhaps changing the wording. All the stitches were very simple but I think very effective .

Thinking of You

Stamps I used ,sorry I don't know where they came from. I also used a flower stamp for the butterfly paper. It's all very well making a tag but it doesn't stand up for the photo .I improvised with a tiny hairbrush and cut away some of the bristles leaving just enough to hold my tag.

Africa is calling

When I decided to knit and sew a few things I really wanted them to go overseas,perhaps Africa or another poor country. I e-mailed a few very well known organisations and asked if they would like the finished items to send abroad - a resounding NO . It would seem cash is the only donation they are interested in having . Care for Africa do however need knitted and sewn items which go over in a large container periodically . If anyone would like to participate I am happy for you to post them direct to me and I will pass them on or you can send direct to CFA.
