a couple of finishes







okay to be totally honest i finished this about a week or so ago
but i have been a really slack blogger

so this is the absolutely gorgeous note book cover
we received the kit for at GDITC

it was designed by the gorgeous Kerry 

since i am a bit into reproduction fabrics and purple 
at the moment i decided to use
my own fabric 
which i purchased at 
on the GDITC
weekend



i also added a some antique lace that i had
acquired from somewhere

i am really happy with it
and it has gained a permanent place in my handbag


i have also been playing with crochet
i discovered 
a few months ago
and have avidly read so much of her blog
i discovered the patterns for

the teeny tiny stars


and


Teeny tiny hearts

i decided to use some twine, so i could get a very natural look
the twine made it a little more challenging for a novice crocheter
regardless i managed
to
 create a little crocheted
swag


which i am waiting for gadget to hang in kitchen for me
(it involves placing nails into some very hard wood, otherwise i would have done it)

more to show you very soon

I hope your hands are working on a project that you love

Ciao

Great work on the notebook cover. Love that purple fabric from Nundle, it keeps popping up everywhere. How clever are you with your crochet? Cute swag.

I love the book cover Googy. Very cool crochet also.
I was given a crochet star once but it was highly starched and great for the Christmas tree as well....may be an idea for you.
