As usual these are in no particular order and I include everyone. Next weeks photos are equally beautiful, inspiring and diverse!
I hope everyone finds joy, inspiration, ideas, motivation and this helps us move into a new month of making things for our gift giving and Christmas cupboards.
Firstly, we have Rachel. She has been making socks with a frilled edging!
Frilled edging! You know how I love this!
She also has been cooking up a storm but you will see this in a post on Monday!
Lynette has made knitted toys. She made these for Harper and Scarlett! We have an angel and a mermaid! Imagine my surprise when these arrived in the mail!
They are just gorgeous. Thank you so much Lynette! This parcel absolutely made my day!
These will be gorgeous gifts.
She also made a childs rug ...
I am so glad to see you sewing Fiona. Sewing = happiness. Actually crafts full stop = happiness!
Teri made a dreamcatcher for a present all from things she had on hand... this is so feminine!
Beautiful work Teri.
Jeanette has made hats. This is one she made for her friend who is undergoing cancer treatment. She makes the flowers removable so it can be worn with or without. Jeanette I am sure your friend just appreciates this so much!
Jane sent in this picture of a chest of drawers that Bluey and her daughter Katie made over. The before were shelves that were not too good (think paint dribbles and icky colour) and this is the result of the collaboration!
Jane also made sating pillowcases for her son...
(some of the fabric was from cutting up a satin sheet)
And she made over and decorated tins to use for gifts. I LOVE the shells and pearls. Just stunning.
Jane this is all amazing and a lot for the month of February as I know you did heaps of cooking too!
Well that is enough for this week, we have heaps more next week! I would love to see what you have been making. Filling our gift cupboards is a year round job. Lots of things end up as Birthday and other presents and some make it through to Christmas. Seeing what you all have been doing is fantastic. Everyone is off to a massive start!
You can post pics on the Bluebirds Facebook page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope your week is going well! It is pretty hot here. But also the first day of Autumn! I can hardly believe it! I love Autumn! We usually still get about two weeks of summer weather though... not long to go now! This is so exciting to me!
Vicky is having a ton of unpleasant dental work tomorrow. It will be a long day for her. I am praying she gets on well.
See you on Friday! I hope to be able to report some decent building up my home activities! xxx
