Return of Peacock Hearts

Here's a better scan of the picture I did as an anniversary present as promised. I finally got around to scanning it in. It was done on artists board in ink, acrylic and watercolour. The central heart is actually a metallic copper paint but it won't pick that up on a scan.

Amy Butler Lavender Bags

In my garden I have a very large and impressive lavender bush which I made sure I cut and dried lots of this summer. So for Christmas I made a few lavender bags for people using some bright Amy Butler fabric and the dried lavender. I think I might make a few more with this years lavender for myself!

Decorated Frames

These are a couple of things I did before Christmas as a gift for relatives. Some plain photo frames that I've customised to make them unique. I might do a few more for myself as they looked great when I put a black and white family photo in them. Very simple to do with just a paintbrush, ink and a bit of time!

Attempts at crochet

Happy New Year!

I realise updates have been a bit thin on the ground but I'm still here and crafting. Things have been a bit hectic at Christmas but hopefully I should have a bit more free time now to get on with a few things I have planned. I'm currently trying to master crochet yet again... I WILL make something that looks half decent. It's getting there I think after much trial and error, then I plan on making a throw of some description.
