Has it really been 2 years since the Nepal Trek?

Time certainly does fly fast. I thought I would post these pictures of my last major challenge, although I have had many few smaller ones since.
A timely reminder that to live your dreams, life certainly is an adventure.

I have decided to take on a challenge this year !!

Handmade Frozen snowflake headband and bracelet.

I was impressed with the effort that was put into this by my 15year old. From free hand cutting the felt snowflake to stitching on each bead. Of course little 5year old LOVED it !!

Lucas' Jellybean experiment

Lucas saw this experiment on TV and wanted to recreate it, he insisted on doing it all himself.
He needed a white bowl, coloured jellybeans, sugar water.
Then he patiently watched the colours dissolve and form a pattern.

A personalised name bunting gift for a baby girl

I really enjoyed making this bunting my first ever in a scallop shape as I have made many triangle ones.
My first stress was how to draw a scallop shape until it dawned on me to use a small saucer(plate).

I backed the material with visoflix before running it through the BigShot. I used the Stampin'Up! Bigshot Alphabet Dies. After ironing it on I did a blanket stitch to keep in place using two strands of crossstitch threads.
