Apart from the mini-quilts that I obviously can't show you (2 finished and 7 in progress, the other 13 still to think about!) I have been busy making more birthday presents.
I knew I had a party for Daisy to go to tomorrow so I planned on making her friend a bag but then Fred was invited to the same party as the younger sister is in his class (both girls joined the schools recently) I spoke to them the other day at pick-up time and Jessica told me her favourite colours were pink and purple and Eleisha said hers were yellow and orange (and pink too but I didn't think that would make a very nice combination!)
This is my two smallest smalls modelling the bags for me - how cute?
Eleisha's favourite animal was a monkey and Jessica's a dog
When I was trying to think of how to do a monkey's face I'm afraid I shamelessly had a peek at Monkee Maker's sold items in her shop - sorry MM, I was desperate!!! I'm quite pleased with the resulting face but it is no way near as good as the MM originals!
And finally, here are my little owls, created after my amigurumi crochet lesson from Clare on Monday - it definitely gets easier. The pattern is from here and I have just bought myself a copy so I can make some more and I also bought this pattern - how gorgeous are they?
Having spent half the day tidying the pig-sty that is my house and the other half (and a bit) chained to my sewing machine I am off now to watch telly and start my next crochet project, but I will leave you with news of an award I was given today by my super-lovely-imaginary-but-very-very-real-and-wonderful-friend Lesley
Well Lesley, you definitely make me laugh - all the time! But as for me making you laugh - I'm never quite sure if it is laughing because I'm strange or because humorous - I rather suspect the former! Anyway, having you as my imaginary friend is fantastic!
I'm not going to pass this on to individuals but to all my bloggy friends - thank you for entertaining me on a regular basis with your creations, your stories and your humour.
