A Blogging Break and Projects...... "Done & Dusted"

Yes Blogging Friends; my husband and I are loading up our vehicle and taking some time out to catch up with friends who we only see, once a year.

Being early summer; we look forward to four lovely weeks of fresh air, barbeque's, walks on the beach and pleasant company.

No phones; no computers; no deadlines......but....there will be a little bit of stitching to keep me from going rusty.

However; I do have a nice lot of my latest work to show you before I log off.

Remember this pile from my stash?

I got into it and created some mixed media Decorators Pillows.....this one is a pretty blue;

I dragged out my stamps and played with this one....

and...this gorgeous lady has been sitting on my desk looking at me for ages. Now; she has centre stage on this elegant cushion..........

I still had some nice cups left from my last round of pin cushion making, so I dabbled with these;

Then; I got a little bit crazy for making up some hession, (burlap to our USA sisters). These are all lavender pouches....mmmmm they do smell nice! I received my copy of the latest Handmade magazine 'Christmas Gift-Giving', vol:28, no:7 with two of my designs published inside.....

'Garden Dreaming' Stitcheries

This is the one to look out for! The little bag on the left of the front cover is also one of my left over projects.....thankyou Handmade!

Okey; it's "goodbye from me" for four weeks....don't forget me will you.......I'll be back!
