2 more finishes.....

The night before the Friendship Day, I decided to whip up a couple of purses using the Spring Strips I had in stock as I had tons! I changed the pattern slightly, only that I didn't do a stitchery front or crazy patch, but just added a button to some felt. Turned out a treat! I am so pleased I made them! They are quick to put together, and I sold out of the Spring Strips within a couple of hours. More arriving soon!

They are actually 'thankyou' gifts for my SIL's for helping me out on Saturday (along with a favour)! One for Judy in her favourite colour - Green:



And, one in Roseanne's favourite colour -Red.



I must make myself one, when I get more strips lol!


As well as the little purses, I gave them each a pair of these CUTE little scissors:





As featured in Vignette Issue 2 by Leanne's House:




As far as I know, I am the only Aussie seller of these, and I have LIMITED stock left. They were another 'hot' item on Saturday. Interested? Click here.


On family news. CONGRATULATIONS to our niece Mel (at only 21 years of age I might add) and her partner Paul on the purchase of their very first home! We are very proud of you xx
