I have been busy over the last two months. Started a new part time job at the place I used to volunteer and got busy making stuff for the homeless to help with the cold weather, mostly hats and scarves. I have also been making more Sparkly Recovery Flowers to raise funds for the place I work. It’s a great place to work and, as receptionist, I get to meet everyone and I keep trying to sell them the flowers. I only have the purple one photographed (see last post) but we actually have red, pink, peach, white and yellow sparkly ones too. Talking of work I made another work colleague doll too.
I’ve also made stuff for the grandsons for Christmas and this year I don’t have to wait to show off the things I made as the grandsons are too young to read my blog 😉 Lastly I decided to do some more bun holders and added some Christmas ones so I can match them up with my Christmas earrings. My favourite one though is the Poppy one I made for 11/11.
So now comes all the photos (I bet you were hoping I’d forget to add them – no chance). 😀
Started a two day a week part time job on the 1st October. I love it because it gives me time to craft whilst answering phones etc.
Since my last update I managed to finish two dog blankets for a Lady who goes to the art group where I work. A save the day flower brooch for my boss lady who had a stain on her dress and now I am making Recovery Sparkling Flowers to be sold to raise funds for the place.
On the home front I’ve been adding my own designs to hats for the homeless and mitts for Preemie babies. I have also had some more fun with bun holders and created two for Halloween and another one for Christmas.
I’ve been making more baby stuff for Preemies UK (almost have a very large box full now). Mostly it’s been more hats, two of which are my own design of Flower Fairy Baby Hats and I tried my hand at making mitts to match – they didn’t turn out too bad.
I also managed to finally finish the blanket for the homeless and delivered it this morning. I might not be doing as much external crafting now as I have a commissioned dog blanket to finish and Christmas gifts for the three grandsons to start making.
Meanwhile I’ll show you all the pics of what’s finished and try to keep you updated on what I manage to make whilst working two days a week 😀
So I haven’t done that much of my crafting but I have managed to play around making bun holders, one for everyday and one for Christmas. Also did a baby blanket and a few hats. One adult hat for the homeless and two baby ones, a beanie and a bonnet, all of which I did without patterns. Quite pleased with the way they’ve turned out.
Not been that productive as I’ve spent most of the last few weeks attempting to make two Dragons for my grandson. I say attempting because I have had to rip it out so often I was starting to think they’d never be done. They certainly weren’t done in time for his birthday but at least all the pieces are finally finished. Tomorrow I stuff and sew them together and hopefully I’ll have them in the post by the weekend.
These are the things I’ve made since the last update – Character dolls of my ‘bosses’ at the place I volunteer at, another mohair scarf for the homeless and two baby blankets..
