Ellie Balloons

Thank you for all the lovely messages again on my last post.
You are all so kind.

I have been playing with clay again. 
I had made a blue one of these boxes for a boy
 before, but never got around to making a girly one.

Ellie is made, using a Kathryn Sturrock mould 
and air dry clay.
The balloons and gift box I make in my hands,
using the same clay.

The flowers are made from air dry clay too.

I have a few more ideas for makes, so just hope
my head will get on with it!!

I have nearly finished a cross stitch picture I have had for years!!
It was still in an unopened bag!!
This morning, I found 4 others that I had started but not 
finished for years. They are mostly very big ones, 
by my favourite company Lanarte. 

A week today, my hubby will be 70!! 
Sadly, we will not be having a gathering of friends
 and family, that I was lucky to have.

We will just have a lunch out at a lovely pub near to us. 
Just hope the weather is kind to us. 

Back to my craft room to finish off a few notebooks. 

I must give a BIG HUG to Chrissy. 
You are so kind and thoughtful. I will treasure it 
and will stay on the wall in my craft room for ever!

Thank you for taking time out to visit my blog
and hope you are keeping safe and well. 

Please leave me a message so I know you have been
and I will visit your blog too. 

Have a lovely weekend.
Big hugs,

Hi Carol

Another super special make. Love that you can turn your hands to so many different types of craft.

A special birthday on the way! Sorry you aren't able to celebrate with your family and friends .. .. .. hopefully that will be able to happen in the not too distant future.

Love Jules xx

Oh this is so lovely and cute Carol, you are very clever. You sound just like me with cross stitch. I daren't look to see how many unfinished projects I have and Lanarte is my fave company too, but they are so expensive. I did manage to finish a fruit basket of theirs though not done anything with it x

This is beautiful Carol, such an adorable elephant and pretty box - a lovely gift.
I hope your hubby has a lovely Birthday, such a shame you can't celebrate with friends, I'm sure he will still have a super day celebrating with you.
