Lots of B's

Thank you so much for the chicken love in my last post, I should have said that the pattern came from here . I did manage to get my swap posted and it's now been recieved so I can show you all the goodies I got and what I made. My partner for the Freestyle Swap was the lovely Rachel from Contented,

My parcel arrived at 5.30pm on a Friday afternoon - I didn't think Royal Mail worked that late !!

There were little presents for Milo and Gabriel ( yes, that's his name )

stickers and Freddos. The boys had just finished tea so the Freddos were immediately wolfed down as dessert.

My chocolate lasted a little bit longer - but not much. The little bird brooch was put onto the little bag and the bookmark is already in use. As for the Mango body lotion from Body Shop, I think that is going to be the smell of the summer. Thank you so much Rachel.

Once again I forgot to take a photo of what I sent to Rachel doh. I did manage to take a pic of one thing though and that was this

it's a small ripple , maybe for the front of a cushion cover. With the help of Lucy's tutorial and a quick e-mail to her I managed to get this done in just a few days. I'm so getting into this crochet and I've got Lucy's bag on my list of things to do ..

I also sent her one of my chickens and a few other bits and bobs. Oh and before I forget, Rachel is holding a swap of her own - A Seaside Swap, so if you fancy joining in there is still time to put your name on the dotted line so to speak - I have.

A few bunnies have also been finished , Kevin and Katie went to live with a lady who's house I just love , and she has a camper van called Nigella ....

and Susie is for sale in my Etsy shop.

The weather has been so nice the past few days . Sunday was my nephews 12th birthday so we had a barbecue to celebrate

the boys had fun playing baseball.

Then down the park there was football

and a bit of cricket.

I don't think there will be much ball playing over the next few days as at the moment it's raining and that's the forecast for the next few days unfortunately.......

So how many B's did you get?

There were at least 11 b's and more if you add bits and bobs!!! Your ripple is stunning. I love the soft and muted hues that you have used. You have done so much crafting recently that you put my efforts to shame!x

Your latest bunnies are so cute! Your ripple is made of the most glorius spring colours. I wondered what baby G's name was - Gabriel suits him.

Kim said...

Your boys are gorgeous - Gabriel is such a lovely name. I think I'll leave the needle work to you, you're too good at it!
(Please, more sun - my greenhouse arrives on wednesday)
