A Few of the Things

Good Monday Morning :)

I'm waiting for a class at our local nursery, Richbar Golf and Gardens. They have all kinds of seminars, but the one I'm signed up for is a Fairy Garden--I've already been out there to pick up a couple of cute fairy things :)

I re-did the one vase and still want to add a couple of things that I'll make when I get the clay.

I made the little lantern and added it to a piece of wood--glued the fairy and mushroom on as well.   The little hedgehog on a leaf is new--from the great selection at the Nursery.

If you need inspiration for building and making things for your own fairy garden, check out my Pinterest link on the sidebar :)  
I have a new board on my Pinterest page called Outlander-for the books and show and another board where I'm adding most of my Scotland photos.  

I used the last of my clay for the mushrooms below. 

After baking, I added ink and clear spray. 

New additions to things on their way to the shop :) 
Hello Dolly is from a pattern in an old Crafts Plus Magazine.  

Also a seat belt pillow--I'm in the process of making a couple of different styles of these handy dandy items!  The cover comes off and everything is washable.  The stuffing is batting--not that horrible foam stuff that flies Everywhere :)   The velcro wraps around the seat belt to hold in place and I made a pocket to hold any little gadgets. 

Hope your are all having a crafty day.

Lovely but frosty Tuesday

Good morning bloggers :) It's a tea-Tuesday for some of you but I started the morning with hot lemon water and now having a cup of coffee with flavoured cream.  Not sure how that came about, I used to like my tea and coffee without anything in it!

Winter seems to turn me into a fibre and fabric crafter and not so much the paper crafter!  Here are a few of the things I've been doing.  If you would like to see more please visit my paper crafter page---you'll find the link on the sidebar :)   

The set of three crocheted baskets--the smallest one is a free pattern from The Slanted Life blog and the other two are my own design.   

The three toques below are pure wool.  These three aren't lined but I did make two others at Christmas, with lining.  I put the word out on our buy and sell face book page for White Buffalo yarn and was given and bought a bunch, so was busy all winter knitting!   

This doll--she's about 18"-- started years ago, just got finished.  There is a smaller version that was also started---I hope to have her done soon!     

A fleece jacket that I added lining to, except the hood.  I also added zippers to the two lower pockets and cuffs to the sleeves.

It's definitely Spring here.  The grass is green and the daffodils and tulips are up, but the trees are just getting buds. I'm hoping to get gardening soon.  This year I'm adding a little fairy garden and will be adding one indoors as well.  I'll be sure to add photos--hopefully in May :)   

Have a wonderful week :)
