A random act of kindness for Andrea

Hi everyone, I hope you are all fine and happy. 

I have recently finished this random act of kindness for Andrea over at The Craft Room blog here  .
Andrea sent me a RAK last year, it was a beautiful pinkeep made in blue and trimmed in gorgeous ribbon. I was so thrilled with such a lovely gift, ever since that day I have always intended to make Andrea a surprise gift too- well here it is!

I designed the box and made it in pink because I knew Andrea liked this colour combination and also liked boxes. I made the little bottle cap pincushion to match, it is trimmed with swarovski crystals - of course!

There are more photos below.
You can see Andreas rak to me(click here,) just scroll down the page.

Stitching news
I have recently finished a couple of exchanges but I cannot show them yet until they have been received by my partners. 

Thanks for stopping by, have a happy, stitchy day!

Random act of kindness

Hi everyone, I am still here, I have just been rather busy lately, no time for doing much stitching.
I have managed to finish a pinkeep as a thankyou to Kate who sent me some lovely tatting materials last year, I always intended to make her a small thankyou gift  and I have only just got around to making something.  I made it in lilac which is one of Kates favourite colours.

The alphabet is a freebie but I cannot remember where I got it from, however if anyone would like a copy of the pattern please leave a message with your email address and I will send you a copy.  

More pictures below.

Stitching news   
I am having some work done on the house over the next few months, we are having an extension that will include a new craft room for me, I am so much looking forward to decorating it and getting all organised with my craft stash. I will be taking photos of the craft room to show you all, so watch this space!
I have just finished an exchange that I will be sending out in a few weeks or so, I will post pictures as soon as my partner receives the gift. I have quite a few exchanges promised, hopefully I will not have too much disruption so that I can get on with stitching them.
