And its claimed already by a certain little one.


I have so many idas for making more projects with the techniques Anne taught us.

PJ day

Well its very cold up here in N E Scotland at the moment so after a quick food shop, we come home and got into our pj's, lit the real fire and had a chill out day. But after about an hour i got bored so had a play around on our new printer.

And this is what i created. Now spot the mistake on the first one, gutted as it looks so cute the right way round.

And i have a thing for little elephants at the moment.

I have a cupcake one done as well but i want to stitch some bling on it. And i have a blank one to finish that i want to dedicate to Keith but i cant spill yet as its a surprise for him.

Now Alex wants me to make him some T shirts, lol. What have i created.
