Holiday fun

Friendship is made up of little things – a pat on the back, an unexpected phone call, a small gift, an unexpected phone call,

a note of thanks, a batch of chocolate chip cookies.....
Hey......good morning!! Lol I have been almost like...under ground the last couple of weeks. I’ve started my holidays and true to my word, I have tucked into making a start on my show entries. I have also been making other things as well, like these head bands that have been sent to market.

The girls around town have gone wild on head bands and as quick as I have knitted them, they have been sold.

The mixed weather we have been having as given me some much loved time in the sewing shed. What do you think of my hoot owl? 
His eyes are yo yo’s with beads sewn around the rim, bits of left over cotton fabrics and embroidered stitches around the sections of belly and wings.

I also have started on a cute little cloth doll. The pattern comes from an old edition of Handmade and is giving me many hours of pleasure. 





I have just finished this little embroidered gift that I have made using bright happy colours. This will be going to the tourist centre for sale.

Things that make me happy.....
Smiles   laughter    feeling loved   a warm fire place   knitting
Hot cup of tea    Italy  friendship 
What makes you happy? Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for dropping by.
Cheers, Anita.
