A bicycle made for.....

Good afternoon all and hope you`re all well?
With Christmas and the new year celebrations finally over I decided to take the kids over to the city centre, for a bit of window shopping and to see if any bargins could be found.
There was still a few bits in the sales, but nothing that grabbed my eye really.  I managed to finally treat myself to a decent winter coat, that i`ve been after since forever, that unfortunatly wasn`t in the sales, but I really needed to treat myself to one.  Especially since the last 5 years i`ve been freezing off my backside, watching and supporting my youngest boy, while he plays his football matches and training.

Anyway I want to show you my next project that i`ve finished. This time as you can see it`s a card instead of a feltie.  I thought it would make a change and thoroughly enjoyed making it.  I raised the little boy and his balloons up with pinflair, that way they pop out of the card.

More monkey Keyrings

Good afternoon everyone and hope you all had a good new year.
Now that things are gradually getting back to `normal`, whatever that means in our house, I can begin to stock up in my new Folksy shop.  I`ll still be listing in ebay as usual, but will be listing my cards and toppers in ebay and felties with other hand sewn items my folksy shop. 
The monkey keyrings will be listed in Folksy by the end of the day, these have proved popular and family members are also claiming these as their own.  So i`ve be preoccupied with getting more of these made and hiding them from all the family.
I`m forever starting new projects, but never get around to finishing some of these off, so my new years resolution is to complete these in the next two months, fingers crossed.  I also want to have a go at making a quilt for our bed, but that`s another story.  You never know though.
Anyway hope to be back in the next day or two, until then
ta ta for now.
