Back again

I've been away from my blog for far too long, actually its only been a week & a half, feels like longer though.
I've missed it, posting & rambling on & checking out all your cool posts & makes & chatter, its a nice pastime don't you think !!!!!
So I guess I'd better share one or two wee things with you, first up are a few lil makes for a Christmas shoebox Ella is putting together, we're having all the kids at church make one up........

A pretty pencil holder in nice pastel fabrics.....scraps are great.....roll it up and secured with ribbon & a button. This blue bird fabric is one of my favourites from Dena Designs, so cute

Also a crocheted hat in soft yellow,

 hope the little one that receives this box will be happy, it kinda suits Ella, think I'll have to hook one up for her too :).
Also using up some more scraps I put together a few cushion covers.
Lauren is putting up some church interns at her place, so we put some homey touches in her spare room including these cushions...

The back is in a nice soft polka dot flannel, soooooo soft, great for cuddling while snuggled up in bed.
The room looks lovely, wish it was my bedroom.
Also this week.....lucky me, I've received an extra large bunch of flowers delivered to the front door, a thank you for the dresses & curtains from a few weeks back

They just about fit into my largest vase, beautiful coloured roses, almost a coral pink shade

Feel so blessed.
Well that's my lot for this post, thanks for popping in & have a wonderful weekend
Lots of love Karen x
