Amazing Arrival!

As I walked in from school, there was a little package waiting for me. Lots of colour and wonderfulness!!
The package contained the give away (a gorgeous Needle Case and Poppy seeds)I won from Jane at Marigold Jam! Isn't it FAB!! All the different fabric and stitches, I just love all the small details.
I particularly like the little Spider on its little Spider web!! It looks so cute tucked away in its little corner!!
I must say I have always wanted to own one of these amazing patchwork needle cases that Jane makes and I am so pleased that I do!!!!
Half of the Poppy seeds will be planted this Autumn and the other half in Spring. I can't wait to see them flower and when they do, they will remind me of today and my super gift.
Thank you so much!!!!

Weekend Painting!

I found that Slate is a great material to paint on! A little project to get my painting up and running.
I'm using this outside as a house number plate.

My mum used up all her old scraps of wool to make this dazzling multicoloured blanket.
I think its very eye catching and is almost like one of those magical illusions!!
This is the last slice (all be it a big one) of the cake I baked at the weekend. I used any left over ingredients I could find!
This last GCSE year has started with a bang for projects etc... It doesn't quite help when the weather is so terrible! Wishing you all better weather than it is in the Pennines!
Thank you for visiting.

Ready to show!!

Well I am now back at school and already doing lots of work.
My Holiday in Northumberland was very peaceful as my mum and I sat in the garden and did lots of crafting (painting, beads and crochet) But only pictures of the finished frame at the moment! My slate project will soon be finished for show!
I hope you like the frame!!
It has changed a lot since you last saw it, there are now three background colour changes - Green, Pink and White. If you look carefully at the frame, weaving in between the circles is a curvy line of 2 cut and bugle beads of a different shade
of the background colour that is surrounding it.
These are the four different reds I used for the circles - Transparent, Silver lined, Opaque and 2 cut. Around the circles I used Iris seed beads to make the red stand out.
A little close up of the green seed beads that I used as one of my back grounds.
I really enjoyed this project and I may just start a new frame, but it will not be completed fast as I have a lot of work to do!!
Hope everyone is having a nice week and that the weekend is very bright and cheery!!
