Touched....

What a lovely, lovely day it has been today... the sun has shone it's socks off and it's been beautiful.... made me very glad to be alive!

A couple of weeks ago I had an email from a lady who had seen this on my blog post .....

... and asked me if I could make her one but in shades of pale pink..... Well, of course I said 'Yes, I'd love to" and this is what I made her....
I packed it up in pink tissue and a little organza bag and sent it off to it's eager recipient.... well, you could have knocked me down with a feather when, on Saturday afternoon, the post arrived and there was a parcel for me.... had I ordered something I had forgotten about???? (It does happen)... no, not this time. I carefully opened the parcel to find this gorgeous bag inside.... (Note the shadows on the table... yay, sunshine)
... and inside this fabulous fairy bag was a beautiful fairy card with some very touching words inside and this stunning rose quartz angel all wrapped in gold tissue paper.....! How amazing is that? I was so touched... thank you so so much.. you know who you are xxxx

Yesterday I gave you a sneek peek at some bags I have been making... here they are in all their finished glory!!

They are made from recycled, dyed wool blankets and some of my fabric stash..

... finished off with yummy buttons and ribbon...
What do you think of this funky lining??? Stripey or what?

Bag number two.....
Front view...

Snazzy colours, textures and shapes....

.. more buttons

I obviously had a stripey lining day....

Back view....

Spotty pocket...
I have also been busy making some new designs for my jewellery collection, and , as the sun was shining today, I was able to get some photos of it.... This blue, grey and silver one above is one of my new favourites... It is made from pale blue waxed cotton, silver beads and ceramic flowers

I have recently ordered lots of new toggle clasps... some are so pretty that I have decided to use them at the front of my designs instead of the back... what do you think?

The long pink beads are stunning... they have gold and pink flowers swirling around them and gold flecks along the barrel...

Matching bracelet.

Don't forget, all of these design are for sale.. If you see something you like I would love to hear from you.... please email me and I will let you have more details.

I hope you've had a sunny sunny day today too... what have you been doing?

Oh... more good news.. PEAS passed her MOT... yay... she must love the sun too!!!

Lots of love xxxxx
