Monthly Makes 2012 - February

Morning

I've 5 minutes to kill whilst I wait for a delivery to turn up - can't get to far from the front door as those pesky delivery drivers tend to knock so quietly and drive off again! I need to catch this one - he has essential items which the menfolk need this weekend! (nothing exciting - computer cabling!!).

Right - I think I've made all I'm going to this month - there is one thing I'd like to show you but that needs to wait until next month so I don't spoil any surprises ;)

Makes for February;

Top left > bottom right - hexy crochet bunting for a S&B birthday, crochet flower brooch, crochet flowers & hearts, 3 cushions for Greenpeace Fair stock, one upcycled dress for me, 3 mini-raggies towards the fair and my first finished crochet blanket :)

One final mention - if you are in Suffolk on Saturday and want to spend time listening to fab music and mooching a good range of craft/vintage stalls then head to St Edmunds Hall (next to the Primary School) in Southwold - the Waveney Greenpeace Winter Fair is there all day - starts 11am and the stalls finish at 5.30. There is also evening entertainment - music and wild dancing (I won't be doing that!!). Come and say Hi :)

BTW - several have asked - my ankle is doing well - we're now 6 months since it happened. My walking is improving and I can now walk up and downstairs 'properly'. I still limp and expect that to be the case for a long while. Physio is down to once a month with me doing the exercises at home.

See you soon

You have been so busy, I fear my monthly makes may be quite slim this month, where has the time gone! I love the wee dolls, perfect for wee girlies (and big ones too!)

Oh, everything is lovely, but that dress with a heart on it is just fantastic! I'm going to have to 'upcycle' a few clothes (holes etc) and maybe I should choose a heart theme..?

Hi again, Vicki - thanks for your comment! I don't think I'll be making those little pies myself - the French have such fantastic bakers' shops that they tend to leave the patisserie to the professionals. Lots of other cooking, but buying pastries and fancy from the baker's is considered normal. Their bakers' cakes are much nicer than British ones, I'm ashamed to say.

Goodness, half a year has gone since you did that? !!

I'm so glad you are much better though :o)

Love your monthly makes my dear..Good luck at the fair on Saturday :o)

Oh, you forgot to put the link to the facebook photos Mr VV put on of you playing air hockey ;o)
(I LOVE air hockey :D)

Have a happy week my dear, and wishing you a nice day on Saturday.
Love Donna xx
