Gardening time

Well now that Spring has really sprung the garden had to be dealt with, always looks tired after the winter months. Have created a new bed and with the turfs made a shady rockery under a tree. DH has worked hard doing all the manual bits whilst I did the designing.





Not been idle of the creating front a bracelet in Swarovski pearls and crystals to compliment the bluebird collection. Dainty for the summer


More beautiful weather this week and more long walks down by the mill and the river


Nothing better early in the morning when the only company is the wildlife and other dog walkers.

Have a good week

The final piece

Finally got there and the last piece for the bluebird collection is off my machines.

Clutch bag


The blossoms have Swarovski hot fix crystals in the centres, think goes well with the glittery fabric.


Seven pieces in this collection and although seemed to take an age to complete happy I finally got there. Added to my shop at Carolee Crafts.

Next project? either wedding or baby, not sure which. Currently knitting a bodice in moss stitch with a cable pattern,  which will have a fabric skirt. So maybe the baby/toddler items should be next. Decisions, decisions...........

Have a great weekend folks
