Happiness simply wants
What you already have.
Hello to you all. I woke up this morning to the strong smell of smoke, so I went to investigate straight away. Did I leave the iron on in the sewing shed and now it’s burnt down??? No....thank goodness, I’m sure all my teeth would fall out if that happened! Lol There seems to be some fire in the far distance but the strong winds have pushed them our way.
This week I have absolutely enjoyed myself with making toys from some fabulous books I have out from the local library and from my own library. Crafty Creatures is the kids book from my library and it arrived on the last day of school term. It has come home with me and I am having so much fun making things from it......
(you can do it Ashlee)
I don’t usually put buttons on toys I make because if this goes in as a gift for a baby I would worry about the buttons coming off, so I hand stitch eyes and face parts with yarn instead. Still looks cute.
In the same book I made this ever so gorgeous pony. It was fun making this little guy and so simple. I especially love the tail and mane.
50 yards of fun is pretty fun to make from too! Just by using little scraps of yarn you can make these incredible creatures.
The bodies on the two toys are the same but arms and legs are positioned differently. These will be going in to my library. I bet they’ll be loved.
I had a great time at the local library, just had to take these two books home with me as well. The book about Italy mentioned several places we visited and want to go back to.
My lovely Italy
A favourite pass time of mine....(sad but true)....is tipping out a heap of buttons and just staring at them.
I have more buttons than Heather...ha ha ha
Oh yes, I have some funny traits!! How about you guys? Anyone out there willing to admit they have a quirky little ‘thing’ that they enjoy doing? Love you to share with me. If you laugh at yourself, no-one else can touch you!! Lol
Now for something not so enjoyable....my youngest son & hubby have gone to the go kart track today so gingerly I am going to enter a man cave and clean the rotten thing out. I know – make them clean it themselves. It never happens on the great scale I need it to happen. So I’m going in armed with a light sabre, vacuum cleaner, cloths, food (in case I get lost for a couple of weeks), garbage bag and a compass to help me find the way out!!! Have an absolutely fab Sunday and hope everything is sweet.
Our gondola ride in Venice. See there's no hair on hubby's head? I told him that's what would happen if he married me....he didn't listen!! lol xx
