A "Monthly makings" has started over on the wonderful Bunny Creates blog, which was too cute an idea to not join in!
August's theme was 'Yellow' so I decided on a lemon and orange version of my lolly stitch picture. I can't wait to see what everyone else made. Bunzi makes the sweetest amigurumi creatures. I found her through her sister, Mushroom meadows who I've mentioned before for her super cute illustrations and together they have opened an adorable etsy shop YAY!
This lolly will be making its way into my little shop soon (just needs to be secured properly in its frame).
I wish I'd thought of the lollies sooner. They are so fun to make and I'm itching to make a red lolly/yellow lolly set, but September will take away my summer and I really should get some christmas-sy things started.
Other things I should have done sooner are a couple of Thanks yous and mentions:
A long, long time ago in blog land, the lovely Alicia in Hawaii of Curiosities 808 passed on an award to me here and Karin from Nordic Crafts gave me a blog friends gold card! How sweet of you both, Thank you!
I'm going to be a little naughty as I am still trying to catch up post-holiday and pass on the blog friend card to everyone who visited me for my happy 100! There is a link to you all in the sidebar, and if you'd like to see the real rules, please visit Karin. I will be there often to see how her altered journal is getting along - its an amazing idea!!
My first ice lolly popped up on the 'feeling stitching' blog! I love the flickr group! There are many amazing crafters so I feel quite honoured to be mentioned there
It's so lovely to hear of safe arrivals and new lives for my little stitches so I was very happy when I saw Deniz has blogged the arrival of Goldie and Bear, who now goes by the perfect name of Higgins!
and when Nicole emailed me to let me know Polly and the other giveaway goodies had arrived (in record time - over the ocean in less than a week!) I hope you are all having lots of fun and tea parties!
And finally (I think finally, if I have forgotten anyone, anything... please give me a nudge!), Patty has tagged me to share 6 unspectacular quirks.
As its a long post already with not enough pictures for my liking, I will leave you with 1 and share the rest another time:
1. I am a terrible procrastinator and will leave everything for tomorrow if given half a chance
Have a lovely weekend!
