" Ding ding" round two lol

I know I know it's like waiting for a bus lol.
So As I said earlier I have some finished projects I wanted to show you so here go's .....

I started to struggle with my card making towards the end of last year. I kept seeing lots of amazing cards on various blogs but just couldn't pull it together myself. So I decided to go back to basics and bought myself some card kit's and well here's what I came up with...





I've also been working hard at my mini quilts and with two new one's added my wall is now starting to fill up




and I've also managed a curtain....

A cushion ....

And a set of four place mats...


And I also have a couple of unfinished projects.....


This is my little silver cross pram that has been sat empty in my bedroom for a couple of month's now. So I decided it was about time I did something with it. It now has a couple of occupants and a new quilt. I'm planning on making a small matching pillow to go in it and My mother in law has kindly agreed to crochet a blanket for it. So I'll be sure to take a piccie of it for you when it's finished.

And last but not least....



I've had this project sat in my stash pile since last summer but I kept putting off making her because The only instructions I had were written in dutch (aaahhh) So anyway I finally plucked up the courage to just go for it and do it without instructions. After all how hard can it be lol.
So here she is looking pretty cute ....but .... um .... yeah she's got no clothes hehehe But don't worry I've promised her that she will have a new dress by the end of the week lol.

Anyway that's it for this one cause I've got a bit to do before I pick river up from pre school. I'll try and get back this evening to do that giveaway.
see ya all soon

Hi Karen, WOW and double wow, you have been a busy girl. I'm loving all your crafting, the cards are fab and the quilts and cushion, its all great. I've done a rabbit from the same pattern, I'll pop a pic on my blog in a bit. If you want english versions of those patterns check out the TILDA range of books on Amazon, sew pretty homestyle, and SPH Xmas and the one with the bunnies in is called crafting springtime gifts and theres also crafting xmas gifts. xxx

Wow you have been so busy, well done everything is so adorable :)
Your rabbit is great and I adore the little Hummel handmade card, I have a few figures that I have bought for my children as keepsakes,

Your living room sounds wonderful, where it all happens it sounds a very nice place to be

Good Luck for my giveaway

Hey Karen ring their head office, 08450 262 440 and asked to be registered I am sure if you are registered then they shall send you a free magazine, £1.50 if you buy it in a shop.

I have seen back copies of CK catalogues on Ebay selling for quite some money :)

Hi - thanks for popping back about the quilts. I'm very impressed... my most complicated crafting takes about an hour and a half. I'm not sure I could take on something that takes 4-5 hours cos I'd get impatient to see the result!
But they are truly lovely - I'm very inspired by your quilts.

Well done on all your makes, you have been very busy indeed...
I have so much to catch up with...
I need more child free hours in the day!
During the day I have to entertain Dan and do the housework, then once the kids go to bed Les is back and he wants my undivided attention, he gets so funny if I am doing something else!
I swear he's the biggest kid! lol
