Just before the bank holiday weekend my lovely postie delivered a couple of parcels that I had been eagerly awaiting...
The first was from a lovely lady called Alesha who I did the handmade swap with. As she lives in Canada and their post office were on strike for a while it took quite a while for our gifts to reach each other. But it was all worth the wait. I'm not sure what they are called but they look wonderful on my kitchen windowsill next to my Denby coffee pot (£2.50 from a charity shop - bargain or what?!
They are made from coloured card and have pearl and diamante pins in the centre of flower, just look at the work involved - I love them!
I'd sent her the first handbag I made, it was only a small one but I lined it and made a matching purse and ring. The photo is a bit dark, for some reason my flash refused to cooperate that day!
My other parcel came from the wonderful Pinkapotamus when I won her giveaway. It's a handbag made from a book. How cool is that?
She even put my initial on it! I shall be using this on my next night out on the town - it's the perfect size for a ladylike evening spent quaffing wine
I'm spending this bank holiday busily catching up on my crafting after being denied it while I did some more of my massage course!
