Hi guys,hope you are all well,weather is cold wet and windy here so perfect time to craft.

I have had another torrid time,a family loss,and my little Alfie had a fit,due to a nasty ear infection.  Bless him do not think I have ever rushed to the vets so quickly.

But he is slowly on the mend now.  Love that wee man to bits,hate it when he is sick.

Anyway,onto my makes to take my mind of stuff that has been going on I decided to get all my scraps of material including,things I had printed on and had a go at patchworking.

This was my first time patchworking so they are not perfect but really enjoyed it.

My first bag I wanted to patchwork the wrong way if that makes sense to create a shabby chic bag. You will see what I mean by the pictures.

I cut all the tiny squares and pieced them together,to create the bag,then put it in the washing machine,so the edges frayed to create the shabby chic look.

This is the back of the bag were I just randomly stitched,to create a pattern.

Now for my vintage,bag.  These are just bits,of scrap fabric I had,including,some canvas which I had placed in my printer,and printed some images onto it.  Then I stitched,with some,royal blue,cotton in between,the squares.

And here are the two bags together.

Hope you like them,take care my friends,all my love Cherylxxxxxxx

Morning guys,well I have been lucky enough to get these awards still can't believe it.

My wee books,were chosen as top 3 winner sisters of craft.

Then I got another top pick for one of my cards at crafting from the heart.

And I have just,found out that one of my cards,was chosen by the team from inkspirational.

So to say I am chuffed,is an understatement really made my day especially as they are chosen by the DT.

Right now for todays makes,I made this card using a hunky dory topper,and the dies are X Cut.

With the dress form I have used one of the stitching dies to create some detail in the dress.

Now as you know I have been learning slowly to sew and saw these on Pinterest and decided to have a go, there are lots of tutorials but I can never follow them so I just went on my own.
So here are my boxes all ready for my sewing bits. Will be making more of these.

I just used some of my odd scraps of material up and they are perfect for holding lots of bits and bobs.

Well hope you enjoy my post today sorry there are so many photos,.
have a wonderful day love massive hugs Cherylxx

Hi guys sorry not been around much,but not been feeling to great had a bad reaction to some cream.
I keep forgetting to check the ingredients,and oh boy I have paid for it.

Still never mind
I was asked to make a mouse for a customer well I have never done anything like this before,she was really pleased with it,thankfully.

With the leftover material I made her a bag to put it in.

So here it is..............

So what do you think? I charged £10 for it.

Next we have a hunky dory topper,which I have added glitter too. Various dies I have used including tattered lace,spellbinders,tonic and sara davis ones too. I have added pearls to the centre of them and more to the corners. Papers I have used are called christmas wishes from trimcraft. Tiny envelopes i made on memory keepers,123 punch board.

Best thing I ever bought makes thousands of different sized envelopes so easy to use too. Plus boxes and bows.
Finished card with ribbon and some pins.

Lots of love to you all
