I knew I had to clean the bathroom & hoover the stairs, landing & bedrooms & put the recycling out for collection, so naturally I put all of that off for a bit & collected myself a posy.
It contains = calendula, cosmos, dahlias, cornflowers, stocks, sweet peas, large daisy's, & some white frothy flowers amongst others. It was a pleasant half hour spent & surprisingly also contains a large amount of critters too!
I have joined a few swaps because I rather like making things & it keeps me quiet! I keep on forgetting to put the swaps up in my side bar. This latest one was organised by Lisa who also organized the stationary swap I took part in. Its a secret swap as in you send a handmade ornament to someone & someone else ends you one. I ambitiously decided to make two ornaments & finally decided on a stripy knitted Christmas stocking as I thought my limited skills would be up to it. They were until I sewed the seams together, lets say after much hair pulling it was the neatest they were going to be! I added a couple of extras to make up for the lack of sewing skills!
My efforts - there is a bag of chocolate coins in each stocking, one recipient in England the other in New Zealand!
