Good morning....

Hello and challege day again at Crafty Catz, this week Jannette has chosen anything goes with a twist of'anything but a card'
We are sponsored by

I covered a small tin with papers, braid on top and bottom, spellbinders circle and scallops, picture coloured with PM's and glitter, I made this for my neighbour who has been in hospital and put in digestive biscuit's.

.I have also made this leather bag this week with some real leather which came into the charity shop. I lined it in cream silk and added a zip pocket inside.

I added a broach to the front as my large needle broke trying to sew on a button. (it is cream and a lovely shade of mink brown but looks more grey here )

I have had a lovely 4 days in sunny Blackpool, well, 2 were lol....a lovely guest house on the North Shore, I will certainly be back again... Home today and a birthday party lunch to attend at 12.30pm just love retirement !! hope you have had a good week

Hugs Tilly x
