Craft round up


I am just quickly doing a catch up of the crafts I have completed since my last blog. I am going to bed after, and I have had a niggle in the back of my head to record it all in my blog space!!

So here it all is. Some old skills and has always some new ones too.

Patchwork crazy 


This lil piggy, money banks.

My new bag design. Think I may keep this for myself. Love it!!

Soap Making

I haven't done this for about a year. I didn't get on with it first time round. But, I never give up, I just set it aside and just unconsciously work on it in my mind. 

Here is the results. Lovely pink and white layers. It is so appealing on the eye and lovely to use, but the smell, oh boy the smell. I used rose blend essential oil, which is lush, but I also used surgical spirits to help the layers adhere and get rid of bubbles. The smell is like germolene, hospital smell. The resources say this will disappear. I hope so, or this beautiful soap is wasted. Fingers crossed. 

Well that is what I have been up to. I will be popping over to see all of you I follow sometime this week. 

I will leave you with crafting with the kids yesterday. I had them all to myself whilst the other half went golfing!!! Nice for some!

Loom bands (before they went into the vacuum cleaner!!) and our home made maker!!

Homemade chocolate lollies.

Making lemon drizzle. 

Drawing on t-shirts.

Busy, busy busy. 

All pictures and not much natter. 

Enjoy your week.

  1. Oh I have forgotten my embroidery. I will add it on tomorrow x

  2. My goodness Kelly, you have been busy with such a variety of lovely things - what talent - love it all! I could just about eat that soap and do hope the smell disappears for it would be a shame to have it spoiled. I also love the cushions and their various colour ways, very special, well done! xoJoy

    1. PS I also meant to say great stuff going on with the kids too - so nice to see them getting crafty! x
