Flower Garlands and ME

I liked the flower garland from I Made It's blog, and decided to make one...

Flower Garland

...but I made it with the flowers attached directly to the crocheted 'tape', rather than hanging down so far...

I'll have to make another one now - I can't just make one of anything!

Pictures of Me

Quilter Liz remarked that it was nice to see a picture of me, having read my post about the pictures for my French driving licence.  I was not sure, as you'll see if you read the post... I took another picture this morning, which hopefully doesn't look as if it is a prison mugshot...

Me May 25 2012, this one's for you Liz!

Flower Hair Elastics

You may know that I am preparing for a stall at the Curdridge Show in July, and am driving over with all my goodies.  One of the things I have been making are hair elastics, as they seem to be quite expensive in the shops and not really very available over here.  This one is an anemone flower that I've also used on my teacosies. (They'll be for sale too!)

Sorry that you can't see the detail of the flower very well!

G'day Penny. Thanks for posting another great photo. You are just as lovely as I knew you would be. Also love the hair elastic, with the flower on it, what a great idea. You are a clever lady.Hope you are staying cool over there, we are having a really cold snap here at the moment. Take care. Liz...
