Today I received two beautiful necklaces from gala_apples:

thank you both very, very much!

82  Handbag for my mum in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Ratfinkz on: June 17, 2014 12:17:43 PM
I am still very much a learner sewer -but my mum kind of requested a handmade handbag for her birthday - so I came up with this! There are a few mistakes - but it was the most complicated bag I have tried yet - and overall I am pleased with it.

MY mum took the photos, in reality the handle completes a circle with the bag body - but it looks floppy in the pictures - blame the photographer Wink

the main bit I am unhappy with is the interfacing showing on the lining/handle (the big white bit!) I really struggled with the lining/handle!

Sorry I have been MIA again - I've been busy/poorly/bleugh!
Last weekend we went to visit my mum! Here's Milo meeting mums new dog called Lulu - she got her from a rescue centre 4 weeks ago - and she is an amazing little dog - I totally fell in love!

then today I let him meet my doggies properly

with Tizer, our rescued Lab cross something (I love this picture!)

and with Sprite - our Springer Spaniel.

one of my main hobbies is crafting and specifically taking part in Craftster swaps - so here Milo is checking out the swag I got today from the Sweat shoppe swap:

I will try to be better at keeping in touch now! Sorry!

84  Flowery/starry bracelet and earrings in Beads: Completed Projects by Ratfinkz on: June 17, 2014 11:49:33 AM
I made this bracelet over the last few nights using peyote in the round - it is the first time I have made anything from peyote that isn't just the straight lined bracelets you can make - I am fairly pleased with it - although lots of improvements can be made!

I also made these earrings to be worn with it. I have just noticed that the spring has fallen off one of the hooks - so will replace that before I wear them!

(also just noticed one of the earrings is crunched up abit - they are both the same, honest guv!)

I also received on Saturday - but have been lax at posting pics - my apologies! I received a lovely package from Deadbathducky, thanks hon I enjoyed swapping with you! Here are pictures (earlier than I said I know!)

A book of Australian Crafts - I LOVE craft books

A very pretty purple and black ribbon bracelet - this is too pretty to be used as a bookmark - so I have decided it can be a bracelet instead Smiley

A very pretty dragon to go in my collection:

A purple and black ribbon wreath which is going to go on our 'wedding shelf' full of knick knacks from our wedding last year

A gorgeous purple cow - I LOVE it's horns which deadbathducky made from some pendants

(I thought I may have to give this to my mum (she collects cows - but no chance I am keeping it!)
A beautiful purple necklace

A cat gift tag / card decoration which I love - but which my husband finds freaky cos apparently it looks like a moomin....he married me for crying out loud, we know he has no taste! Tongue

A fairy bottle which is very pretty, and I also got an empty bottle of the same size which I will turn into something!

Pretty paper

I also got a stencil for the dragon she made me so I Can make my own -s ome purple card blanks, and some wilbby wobblys which WERE delicious - but didn't make it until I was doing photos - sorry!
Thanks again Deadbathducky - I hope you get your parcel soon!

I have a massive apology to make to ybunnygurl, I had forgotten I had not yet got photos up! I am so sorry - I really hope people are still watching this gallery cos her work deserves to be shared!


Gryffindor trunk with lego / badges and a sticker inside:

Tigger frame with lovely original style Pooh picture

Yellow and Green were fold up bags to go in my handbag - but she had decorated the fronts of them! They fold up this small:

Yellow was my all time favourite flowers: Daffodils!

and green was a Dragon - I LOVE dragons!

blue was a hammock for my ratties:

Indigo was a T-shirt, which I promptly put on it has since been washed and I am currently wearing it again! Smiley

(action shot from when we went to visit friends for an evening)

and Violet - well, violet was a purple patchwork skirt! I have wanted one of those for SO long - and I love this one, I have been living in it and it is currently in the wash - but as soon as it is out I shall take an action shot and post it!

Thank you very much I enjoyed swapping with you!  I am sorry you were disappointed with what I sent you though. Maybe one day we can be partners again and I can make it up to you Smiley

Oops I forgot my beautiful rainbow bag - which I was using this evening, sorry!

Just a few hours after my last post I got a new friend Smiley

Milo was very tired after all the adventures of his journey so he slept most of the day but he did take time to help me do some crafting:

He came bearing gifts of some funky soft toy patterns and some very pretty fabric which was very kind of him Smiley and very appreciated
