Wow Wednesday No. 19
Another Wednesday of blogging, sharing stories and makes from the last week.
It has been a tad cold here in Hampshire this last week and unsure if that is it for the summer, have we had it? or will the warmth return. Spent most of the week sorting that garden and lugging a large trolley round the garden centres, we have so many near us, spending exorbitant amounts of money on shrubs that will hopefully last and bedding plants, fingers crossed we do not get a frost. Must admit Lee (DH) has worked so hard and the garden is now looking good again. Thought we had finished with the buying and he now goes and digs another bed, hmpff! which obviously needs filling, what is he like?
After all the gardening I did get some stitching done, following on from the funky yellow 'Bee Happy' theme with a couple of frame bags, I love these so elegant and can be used every day plus a handy wristlet, these are so good when you want to travel light but big enough to hold the necessities:
Using my Big Shot new die had to experiment with this beautiful pink lace, producing a shabby chic style pin, offset with a pink diamante centre stone.
I have got a stall at the Cheeky Monkey Party run by the NCT at The Royal School the end of June, thinking cap on and as I love Fairies and Pixie's had to make something along that line and in 'Pink' just what a girl needs:
A handy little notebook encased in pretty pink glittery fabric with 'Nanny Sweets' and her wishes on the front, a perfect gift for a little girl.
Still working on some more ideas for the party event and need to sort some leaflets for my personalised party bags, as think these will go down well. I love pink and girly items, not sure as when a child more of a Tom Boy, maybe dreaming of what I should have been a young lady in pastels.
Not sure about all this frothy pink stuff, I prefer a bit of mud!
