Show and Tell Monday


"The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by.

When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here."
- Author Unknown

Half way through March and hoping the snow is a distant memory. Has been beautiful in the southern part of England this week, the sun shone but with a biting wind at least no rain!

Baby Shoes

Loved knitting these delicate little picot edged shoes, with an organza ribbon and rose to decorate, come complete with a white organza bag.

A gift for my Sister

I had been racking my brains for a gift for my Sister's Birthday in April, love doing themed gifts so thought about a breakfast set, bread roll holder, napkins, egg cosies and some beautiful chicken eggs cups made by Quail

Another display stand

Went to our local Homebase this week (a diy store) and found these cupcake stands, could not resist and the price was brilliant £5.99 ($9), thinking another trip next week for another one.

A Remnant Tote

Made two of these handy totes, with a firm card base and inner pockets, lined with dark brown fabric. Fun tassel embellishment with a gold and pearl heart to fasten. The main fabric has a hint of gold to make the bad glisten in the light.
