Making It

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all geared up for a great weekend.
Tomorrow it's my OH's birthday. Having a birthday dinner on Sunday, and an evening out tomorrow. Next year is the big one :)

Today I just wanted to show you some of the things I've been making this week. Two of them are going to be the subjects of reviews next week as they are made from kits. It would be great if you could let me know what you think of them before I publish the review.

The first one is from the Spellbound Bead company not far from here in Lichfield. They are regulars at the NEC Craft show and this kit was bought from the show this March. I love owls so this bookmark just had to get done straight away. The tiny little mouse is a lovely touch. It has a home to go to on Monday.

The second kit isn't quite complete. The cathedral window panel needs sewing to a little 5" square pin cushion. I just need to buy some stuffing for it. A good excuse to pop into the Sewing Centre in town.
The panel is all hand stitched as it is quite small. I love that cathedral window design and have plans for a full size quilt using this technique.

Finally is this little crystal paperweight. It is an item I was hoping to add to my new WOWthankyou shop but it is stubbornly refusing to be photographed nicely. I think I will have to wait for a nice warm bright day when I can get the white tent out. I think I may be waiting some time :).
I love reading your comments, so please feel free to leave one,

See you tomorrow,
