Happy Halloween!

Sorry, nothing spooky to report for Halloween.  We haven't had a single caller at the door yet!  The night is still young but I think the rain may put them off.

I wish this was my pic but it is not.  I have nabbed it from Pinterest!  I absolutely love everything about this.  The black, the orange, the pumpkins, especially the black cat!!  I even love the furniture!

So HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone :-)

On the crafty front...

I have finished 9 notebooks.  

All hand cut and hand sewn from wool mix felt.  Embellished with some pretty buttons.  Actual notebook is lined pages and is A6 sized.  Covers are removable so once the book is full a new one can be bought and the cover swapped over :-)

This doesn't look like much at the minute but this is part of what I have been cutting out for my Christmas decorations.  Almost 200 will be made (hopefully by the end of the week)!!!!

I started learning to crochet a few weeks ago and started to get the hang of it but then other stuff kinda took over so I forgot about it for a while.  BUT, I really wanted some crochet flowers for my keyrings / bag charms and brooches so my mum offered to do some for me to help me out.

Pretty colours :-)

And here are some of the bag charms I made this weekend.  Tempted to keep them all for myself!  What do you think?

Hope you have all had a good start to the week.

Ps.  I had a few emails and blog messages following my last post about the two sicky boys.  Thank you - they are both on the mend, just left with a nasty cough which will no doubt last until February!!!
