Blooming Balls!!!

Isn't it wonderful this little world of blogging??? I recently had an order from the lovely Sarah at Blooming felt for a beach hut cushion for her friend who had bought a Beach Hut called....


The cushion was duly completed....


... including bucket and spade


... and was packed up......


... and sent off... with huge anticipation on my part... Thankfully it was loved by all and as a little thank you, Sarah from......


... popped a fantastic bag of felt balls in the post to me..... and I couldn't wait to have the opportunity to start playing with them....


Well... that day arrived today and I have had such fun... I have felt really inspired and came home so happy!!! Isn't it amazing how one small thing can make such a big difference? Just having something new to play with has released the creativity in me... just like when I buy new fabric, even though every cupboard and drawer is already bursting at the seams with fabric, having something new generates new ideas and enthusiasm.!
So... here is a little peek... ok, a long drawn out peek (cos I'm so pleased with them)... at what I made today!


A bead and ball tigertail necklace... just right for the summer...


Another summery necklace....


... scrummy green and pink felt balls, buttons and crochet beads.....




... and a fluttery butterfly!


I think this one is definitely my favourite.. I just love pink and green together... what do you think?


Purple and green... another favourite combination....


This is a mixture of green and purple felt balls, glass beads, silver spacers, oval and circle hammered chain and buttons.


I love these two necklaces... they make me giggle... they are such fun....



A coloured felt ball is wired to a ceramic daisy and then a small dangle of matching beads has been added... FAB!





What about this beauty.... a fun, funky, button and ball bracelet....


Perfect to wear with any outfit this summer... every colour included!!


Some button and ball flowers.....



Knobbly bobbly earrings......


Lapel pins... large.....

... and small.....




What do you think of this cute ring....?


... made with a lime green button, a purple felt ball and some silver plated wire....


Nearly there.... a kilt pin with charms.....


.... glass beads and felt balls......


Last, but definitely not least...... two funky brooches.....


... both made using a ceramic daisy and a felt ball.....


Such fun!

I hope you have enjoyed this peek at my making today and that I have not bored you too much with my enthusiasm!! I have just had so much fun and I wanted to share it with you... and hopefully inspire you to have a go!

I hope that your day has been filled with creativity and fun. Till the next time... enjoy the lovely sunshine xxxx

p.s
