My week of completions...

This week I completed a few things yay...
But first this is a pic of a little upcycled bag with outside pocket and raggy plaited handle. Jess loves it to store her DS. We made this at her girlfriends house.

A pair of new booties knitted and felted, long time taken. This is the pattern I made for a pair of booties awhile ago and through the felting process, they went haywire. I threw them away when they went out of shape. But this wool worked. The brown booties I sewed together with blanket stitch and beautiful green thread. Love these too. It took longer to sew up than I expected, but was worth the effort.

Another little love of paper, I made for me. I was thinking of selling this one but, I love it too much...
Photos don't do it justice, or I am just a horrible photographer, lol.
some more beaut flowers. love this red.
and another thing I had put away because I didn't know what to do with it. The girls were beading necklaces over the weekend and I thought "that's it". A necklace made out of paper in a choker style. Not to be worn on wet days.
More flowers and musical lillies.
A little cute birdy I knitted from scraps after I completed the little shoulder bag. Pictured below.
Another horse with matching card.
The shoulder bag I knitted with three strands of different wool - stash busting. I designed and knitted as I went along. Very exciting when I put it together and it worked. I embellished with a five petal knitted flower too.

And one more thing I had put away was this. A five intersecting tetrahedra. I couldn't resist finishing it on Friday while Bo was making paper chains at the table. I was supposed to be tidying the house. But it took my fancy to complete it...Took me 3 hours to put in the last two tetrahedras. Again, so much for house work.

The end...
I'd better get back to cleaning now, its Monday...lol have fun. cheers tam.

WOW! I love the LOVE and heart :-) What kind of punch do you have for the butterflies?

Hi AA,
That would be through the Stampin Up catalogue. I think it is in the latest ideas catalogue which finishes soon. The smallest butterfly is really tiny. Not a punch as such, use it with a sissex machine. Love it, thanks to Nellie put the kettle on.
I have plans to make 3 more canvasses, ready and painted.
Have fun Cheers Tam.
