An odd week seemed to be rushing here there and everywhere and not getting much done so makes for this week:

Been thinking of this style handbag for some time, had just enough of the stripe fabric left over from another project, different but happy with the end result.
The handles go throguh large eyelets.

Yet another pair of picot edged baby shoes, this time in a random wool of pink, cream and taupe.

This yarn just spoke to me, normally a pastel girl but thought these would be a funky addition to the modern babies wardrobe and appreciate that not everyone likes pastels. Found the heart buttons and the orange lace in my extensive stash of goodies, a wonder what you can find when you look, lol

A Sunday make, velvet and organza flower, velvet leaves, a vintage style button for the centre with ribbon and beading detail. Mounted onto a brooch bar.

We visited our new puppy this week, he is so sweet and cuddly, know most of you have seen the pics but just had to add this one, think he could be sleeping on the job initially but will soon get him trained to be useful (NOT!!!) Fell asleep on Lee's lap must have been happy. Have started a countdown app at the top of this blog to when we collect him and he has been adopted as the Crafts Forum puppy so to elevate him to this position he may even get his own blog.
