Strawberry Pinkeeps

Last week I went on an overlocking course - it was great fun but as yet I haven't had chance to do any at home. However I bought a couple of fabric kits, one of which was "Strawberry Pinkeeps". I've managed to get four out of the fabric in the kit. I adapted the stalk by looping some cord as they had used just a piece of the felt. I think they are quite cute and a handy size for small projects. I'm on the look out now for more fabric to make some more.

Yesterday postie delivered a wonderful suprise - two absolutely gorgeous ornaments for Miss-Tree. Julie has stitched (over 1) two Little Misses and they are soooooooooooooooooo cute - thanks Julie they are perfect for the tree.

I'm hoping to get started on my Mail Art tonight - I have all the charts ready, just need to sort out the fabric and threads - I'm quite excited about this exchange but I can't show any progress sorry. I will be able to reveal it by the end of the summer (if we get one that is LOL) so not long to wait.

And I lost 4 pounds at SW this week :) only 2.5 pounds to go for my 2 stone award. I am really enjoying this healthy eating regime, nothing is un-eatable, I can even have my wine :)

Don't get tooooooo wet - I hope we all get some sun soon.

Your strawberries are very cute! Julie did a great job on those little Misses!

Congratulations on loosing 4lbs this week! That's fantastic! I'm afraid to face the scale myself next week. I've been on vacation in the States and I can assure you I've not been able to follow the good eating guidelines to a "t"
