Hello! Things have been incredibly busy for me in the last couple of weeks. I have been working on one of this year's goals! I will tell you more in time, if all goes to plan. Let's just say that it's not the "become mega organised" one - I'm going the other way on that, like barely knowing what day of the week it is and realising I've run out of toilet paper and having to use kitchen roll!!!
I have managed to fit in a couple of quick makes, though, to try to switch my brain off and unwind a bit.
Using an empty condensed milk tin that I've been clinging onto, I've made a little pencil/crochet hook/whatever-you-like pot. I covered in in pretty paper, sticky ribbon and adhesive buttons, and I'm very pleased with it!
And I've improved on a crocheted tealight holder thingy I made over a year ago...
I wove the gingham ribbon through the crochet and tied in a bow - quick and easy, but definitely adds the finishing touch!
Then for Mother's Day I baked some cookies for my Mum and the Lumberjack's Mum, wrapped them in cellophane and added a pink riboon...
I've just made them now - I hope my Mum doesn't check out my blog between now and when I see her tomorrow!!
Nice to have something handmade as a little extra present!
Thanks for all the lovely positive comments on the shawl - always appreciated!
Until next time...
