What i'm about!

So today I thought I would show you what it is I'm all about.  Really it's hard to pin it down, because I like to try many different things and if I just see something that I like I will try to recreate it in the best way I can.  Most of the thing's I make are for myself and my house, but as I begin to get more confidence in my crafting abilities I have started to make thing's as gift's for family, and I am even contemplating going to a local Christmas craft fair this year to try selling some of my goods (more on that at another time).

Anyway, here are a few of the thing's I have made in the past few month's, I hope you like them, your feedback would be greatly appreciated!
This is the top half of my little wall unit in the kitchen, which I absolutely adore.  It has to be my favourite piece of furniture in the house.  I bought it from a local charity shop and painted it up myself.  I crocheted the bunting along the top, making up the pattern as I went along.  The little teddy in the left hand corner (Milo as we like to call him), I made from one of my current favourite sewing books by Tilda, Sew Pretty Homestyle, and the crocheted bird in the right hand corner I made by following the tutorial on Lucy's blog at Attic 24.   

The two item's in the picture's above I  made for my newly painted beach style bathroom, I  think this deserves a post all of it's very own, which I hope to do very soon.  I've also added a few of my crochet item's, the wash cloth's were also made for my new bathroom with a pattern from my own head. 

This little bunny is from last month's issue of Inside Crochet magazine, she is called Rosie, because of her rosy cheeks and was made for the upcoming craft fair, but I'm not sure I'll be able to part with her.
This little owl bag is my latest creation, and I have to say I'm really proud of it, even if I do say so myself.  I have seen a few similar ones on pinterest here and here and really liked the idea, so I decided to make my own and I'm pretty pleased with the result.
Last, but not least is this pretty little madam, called Sally.  I made her as a Christmas gift (it's never too early to start when your giving handmade gifts)  for my niece from a lovely little book of stuffed toys called Sew it, Stuff it.  I hope she likes it.
I hope you have enjoyed a little look into my crafting adventure's, I did warn you it was quite diverse, sometimes I even have trouble keeping up, so I hope your up for it.  Thanks for calling in today, hope to see you again soon!
