Good morning............

What a cold and wet week!
It's like winter again after a glimpse of spring, so I made this for my Nephews anniversary.

Silver mirri matting,  papers back to basic5, image Crafty Sentiments, ( win) coloured with promarkers, MS heart punch, Mei flower ribbon, flower, sentiments and Gems from stash.......... I am entering the following challenges;

One stitch at a time --------------anything goes with nature

Craft your passion ------------anything goes

Allsorts challenge ----------- feature a creature

Alphabet challenge ---------------cute and cuddley

Yesterday I went to my sewing club, as well as getting help with a project I was stuck with, we had a lovely lady to give a little talk on how she makes her hand-dyed and hand printed fabrics. There was so much loveliness to see and buy and yes I did. (It's very similar to batik)

 I loved the vibrant colours. Tracy gives talks, visits and sells her fab wares at craft and sewing clubs on requests. All 100% cotton and every one a different pattern, mine is going towards a quilt and the larger ones to make a book....... watch this space (but give me time ) lol...............she is also on facebook.
I have dog sitting again tomorrow until Sunday, I hope this will be the last time.....not many walks in the rain for me though!

Thank you for your visit.
Hugs Tilly.
