A crafting week

What a beautiful week, spring has finally sprung the birds are happy and making a racket to prove the point, had to take a picture of our tulip magnolia the colours and shape speaks fairy houses to me so yes that is my task for this week the Fairy Tales collection.

Green Morning Fairy fabric made into an apple shaped decorative cushion, measures approx 7.5" X 8" and is filled with fibrefill and apple pot-pourri. I love the glitter in this fabric, takes me back to my childhood and the belief that fairies do live at the bottom of the garden.

This week fairy houses which are mini storage containers in disguise for treasures and secrets, all to be revealed next week.

A commission of a lime green, black and white craft tote but extra large and lined with black

Visited the Headley Park Hotel this morning with Jill, a wedding fair was being held within the hotel, a lady doing colour analysis was interested in our May event so we could have another potential for the therapy area, almost full now but still so much to do.

A thank you to Wendy of 1st Unique Gifts for another Handmade Monday
& not forgetting
the Pink Ladies and dear friends for Show and Tell Monday with Make Mine Pink
