Thursday I registered to join a slimming group that is organised by NHS Western Isles, the weight has crept on throughout the Winter as we have not been as active. Lesson learnt and facing the consequences too of over eating whilst away at Christmas/New Year. I need to keep a diary of what I eat/drink, hopefully this will help.
The crochet wreath is finished and already to be packed up for a gift. I enjoyed the process, it was a delight to sort through my large collection of buttons. Even the wool used was a reminder of previous projects so really enjoyable.
The mixture of lace and wool flowers, with the addition of a bird added to the interest and texture.
It was fun laying it out and changing it around using florist pins.
I used a couple of designs to make the flowers and of course different sizes so there were no gaps.
A wired ribbon added to the top to finish it all off.
I have also covered a plain notebooks with fabric to make a new journal. Also a tweed covered notebook for recording my food diary,
First of all I made a flower out of the lace and ribbon to make a button for the elastic.
The fabric was glued to the front of the notebook and wooden tiles added.
A quick and easy make but one that I really enjoyed.
Thank you for all your comments, they are greatly appreciated. The dies are in fact for cutting paper for use with making cards, scrapbooks and my journal. I will show you later in the week how it is done.
The airport shop was in fact The Gordon Castle Shop selling Gin in engraved bottles, herb garden toiletries and all things Scottish it was indeed a feast for the eyes on so many levels. Whilst I didn't buy anything it as a great shop for a gift.
As always I do thank you for your visit.
See you soon.
