Handmade Monday No 76

The sun is shining, the birds are singing and it is warming up, Hooray!!! about time to.

The change in weather is so good and makes such a difference, think we were all getting the SAD syndrome from too much dark and wet days, poor plants will wonder what is happening whilst the weeds reign supreme.

Parisian Collection continues....

Postcard wristlets, been a long time since I have made these in fact looking back about 8 years then about 20 years before that but now able to use machine embroidery and make I feel special.

French Court Bee Wristlet

Made in vintage french bee print fabric, lined in cream, handy zip closure and wrist strap.
Measuring 17 X 13cms an ideal size

Parisian Rose Wristlet

Rose printed linen,  lined in cream, handy zip closure and wrist strap.
Measuring as French Bee Wristlet

French Bee Honey and Vanilla Sachets

Using up some of the left overs had a think and thought the idea of hexagon shaped sachets with a honey bee design and of course honey and vanilla pot pourri,  measure approx 11 X 10 cms

Must admit love this fabric so much have managed to source some more.

A reminder that it is International Friends day on the 5th August for anyone wanting to make some 'Friend' gifts or cards. If you want to join the 'Friends linky party on the 4th let me know and will add you to an email reminder.

The workforce is now 14 months old, not much help so the work part does not happen. We hope that he will not grow much more as already huge. Apparently Goldens do not grow up mentally until 3 at the least, eek!!

Have a wonderful summer week and don't forget the sun protection and check out the other blogs at Handmade Harbour
