Here We Go.............

.........Megan got a book for her birthday about Fairy crafts, which included instructions for making a castle out of empty toilet rolls, which we happened to have lots of (saved for a rainy day, which this certainly was!!!!!). Paired with some DST & scrapbook paper, we (I say that loosely as both girls soon got bored with waiting for me to cut & stick everything!) soon created this little beauties! I did the boring bits & the girls decorated them. Lets see how long they last!!!!

I have been working on some hand embroidery, its a great thing to do whilst watching the tv!! Found an artist called Aimee Ray & used some of her designs as inspiration. Thiswas originally planned for the baby, but has been requested to hang in the girls bedroom. Just need to find a nice wooden frame for it.

Not exactly the most perfect stitching, but practice makes perfect eh??????
