A Missing Couple of Weeks

I’ve not been around on here for a while, mainly due to kids & tummy bugs, half term and the new addition to our family:
snoop A rescue dog called Snoop.  Sadly prior to coming to us he was badly neglected and at the moment he is so nervous we are having to be very calm and try to build him up both physically and mentally.  He’s very gentle even with all he’s been through, so fingers crossed he’ll make a lovely member of our family.

Crafts-wise I’ve been making an odd few things, which I’ll show off properly over the next few days.  Here are a few examples:

feltslippersMy first attempt at making felt slippers for my daughter, even though they resemble monster feet and even though they’re patchy, she seems to love them.

DSCF8508 One of a series of Egg pictures I’m making.

lampshadebits and a sneak peak of a beaded lampshade tutorial I’m preparing.  All I’ve got left to do is to find a smallish lampshade frame and then it’ll be all systems go.

Here’s to a crafty March.
