Not much to show for last week but did manage to complete my husband's Christmas card, need to do the envelope now and that is finished ready for the 25th.
Check out the other Make Mine Pink Blogs and the lovely show and tells from the Pink Ladies

Well another Monday and another start to a new week. Thought I would include a postcard received re a fabric sale at Sue Foster fabrics in Emsworth, a lovely coastal village about 17 miles away. I thought this represented MMP well.
The blue and white bag is this weeks make. Made in the shabby chic crazy patchwork style, embellished with lace, butterfly sequins and a flower with a blue heart bead for the center.
These were a find at the local car boot sale, thought with repainting and distressing, perhaps filled with flowers and pot-pourri they would be transformed.

Here are my latest creations a rose scented cushion, filled with pale pink foam roses in an Angel and Rose fabric edged with lace and guipure trim.
A box shaped like a book which I have made with a title 'A Book of Roses'. This is again scented with rose pot-pourri and covered in rose print paper and decoupages with a bouquet of roses.
These two items have been posted on my ETSY shop along with a clutch purse and the open rose pin from last week.
Check out the other Make Mine Pink blogs for further Show and Tell Monday items.
Now I am off to plan for next week, this is exhausting but very rewarding, as the weather is good I think a cup of coffee in the garden will help get my creativity flowing.

A new week and the blue and white quilt is finished, just have to decide where it will be found a home.
The squares are machine embroidered and the whole quilt has been backed with sky blue cotton fabric.
One of my new samples of an open rose brooch, using hand dyed ribbons. An added embellishment of a bee to bring 'good luck'.
This item will be added to my ETSY shop this week.
A new week with new ideas think a rose's theme will be prominent this week, the MMP Pink Friday (4th July) inspired this train of thought. Visit the MMP boutiques for some lovely gift ideas, some of my favorites are shown on the right all my MMP sisters are very talented and will always give you a good welcome.
