Felt flowers...






Hello again. I hope everyone is well and enjoying the lovely weather! Many apologies for the delay on my blog but BT only connected us yesterday and I have had major withdrawal symptoms from blogland and all my friends!
Well I'm back and have been sooo busy! We are settled in the new house now and my craft room is pure heaven!
I just want to thank everyone that sent us new home cards. We were in undated and they are all so beautiful. I'll take a photo tonight so I can show you all. A big thank you to Lisa over at Lavender stamp blog who sent me a watercolour pad filled with different images...theres enough to keep me going for weeks...thanks Lisa.
I have missed you all so much and I am now going to spend the next week having a good catch up on all your blogs,x

I had so much fun making these felt flowers last night! They are about 14cm round and are all handcut and handsewn and are for my daughter Belle's bedroom. I wanted to make a wall hanging to brighten her bedroom up. It was a labour of love and well worth the effort after seeing Belle's face when she saw them!
(And yes they have been photographed on grass...its been so glorious here today that it seemed a shame to stay in!!!)

Welcome back ! Glad to see you got settled in okay.
Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I made more cards for the troops this past weekend. Hopefully I'll put a few on my blog in the next day or so. I'm glad to see they're used, I really have no way of knowing as they don't have my name or anything on them.
Thanks again,
Lizette
