I also made a simple crochet brooch to match and fasten the brooch in the collar position. I sill have two balls of Noro left and think that a clutch may be in order. I am also making another Baktus as a gift and plan to thread through the eyelets with fabric strips and edge with twinkling beads. I must take a moment to apologise for the intrusion in these pictures of several random chins. Lord alone knows where they came from- although I suspect they are made entirely from Cider and cake. xx

You just never know do you, what those play ground Mums get up to behind closed doors! Maybe they're making pixies......

This is just the perfect little book to bring out on rainy days, packed full of delightful little bears for every occasion from Valentine bears to Indian bears, there’s even a gypsy bear complete with earrings and a crystal ball! From the moment you open the book you feel compelled to try the projects which are all very well explained and have simple step by step instructions, Simple enough for beginners yet interesting enough to keep someone with a little more experience happy. The projects are not too time consuming which is also a plus if you want to try them with Children, my five year old fell in love with the baby bear and just had to make it that very moment! So if you’re looking for little projects to dip in an out of this book is a winner.'
So Suz liked it- which is ace. My next post will show some of Suz's work and links to her facebook page- (I'm putting this in a separate post to avoid Polymer confusion!)

I used the sweeties shortly after opening the parcel to bribe the kid into submission giving me time to look through all the charm squares- (the owls are my bestest). The little butterfly notebook looks like it belongs in the handbag of a highly organised young woman, which is a shame because it's going to live in mine- which might help become more like that young woman (or it will give the kids something to play noughts and crosses in in cafes when I have been a rubbish Mum again and failed to provide any other entertainment). Thank you Tia, thanks for taking part and thanks for my heart lifting parcel.

The other goodies shown are birthday gifts I was lucky enough to receive. My sister in law made the fabulous button choker and the purse and brooch are from Ness. I am thrilled with my stack of books and I am really looking forward to doing some more patchwork and quilting, I am definitely an enthusiastic amateur! I am a little more experienced in the demanding and skilled field of shoe collecting. These are Oxygen shoes, in London style bought from E-bay- God I love these shoes.
I apologise about the lack of links- I should be putting dinner in the oven- but I figure every one's too hot to eat anyway....right?

I have managed to find time to play with the sari ribbon I was kindly sent recently and made this bright and summery brooch. I also received a couple of lovely packages which have kept the inspiration for a little frippery bowling along. Lisa from Noodle bubble very sweetly sent me some buttons, and I am having a really cool time making something for my partner in her bird swap. I also got all choked when I received this ATC as a random act of kindness from a lovely Embroiderers Guild friend. I do hope that I will soon be able to direct you to the makers blog. So more crafting soon, I've missed the makey feeling and with some amazing books which I received for my birthday I am certainly not running out of ideas.
