Tardis hat

My dil Astara is slightly crazy i think lol. She told me recently she saw a pic of someone in the us wearing a tardis hat and she wanted matching ones for herself and her soon to be born baby...  This is the one she sent me a link to.

My oh and the boys laughed and said thats nothing like it so i had to come up with my own .
Here is the one for the baby modelled by my lovely 4 month old grandson Logan

Here is the one for astara as modelled under much protesting by my no 3 son Daniel. lol

My oh and the boys think they are fab so i have now been challenged by them to do astara and the baby a dalek one as a surprise. No pattern so lots of trial and error . Pics to follow. lol

Button challenge

Well i was recently fortunate enough to take part in the button challenge at crafty ribbons challenge blog

Here are my goodies

This was my first attempt as i had the ice cream collection of buttons. I stitched this teddy on the beach . The buttons in the flowers were attatched with glitter glue and you can just see it sparkle through the button holes.

I remembered seeing something like this on a blog ages ago and it was this one . Taking my inspiration from this and using card and flower shapes and ribbon from craftwork cards i made this and it got many admiring glances before i posted it . Buttons from craftyribbons. 

 This one was done with my big sister stamp from sugar nellie and my nesties . Flowers from craftwork cards buttons from craftyribbons.

Backing paper from stash. Flowers and card from craftwork cards . Ribbon and buttons from craftyribbons .
Image is nellie with cupcakes  from sugar nellie of course.

First ones i had made for a while but it helped bring my mojo back.

anniversary sampler

well still no cards but i have been busy. I'm in the process of packing up everything from the craft room ready for a refurb and a really good clearout. I have been stitching this for the outlaws and sods law i ran out of thread with 2 letters to go. None available locally and when i ordered it online i had an email saying out of stock till monday oh well you can see it as is. just needs the 2 letters and washing and framing.

finally finished

Well i started this months ago and have gone back to it on and off and now it's finally finished it just needs washing , pressing and framing. No cards i'm afraid . I seem to have lost my mojo completely. Maybe a deep clean of the craft room and finding things i forgot i had will bring it back.

both sides of the coin

Yesterday was the 1st anniversary of carly's cochlear implant operation the 16th feb is the anniversary of her switch on so we had a little party for her . Kaitlyn told her teacher she was going to a happy new ear party and the teacher couldn't stop laughing . It's amazing what a huge difference such small pieces of technology have made to carly's life and we can't thank her surgeon enough for all he's done her scars aren't even visable. So we had a really happy day.
  Today we are on the flip side of the coin my youngest brother should have been 46 today but unfortunately 6 and a half years ago he was found dead. So today is a little more sober than yesterday . so Mel wherever you are RIP little bro . Love and miss you more than you'd ever know.
