Barkcloth and lavender

Well, I thought I had better do some "Shabby" stuff today.
I have all this lavender so I have made a beautiful barkcloth lavender pillow which I shall put on ebay soon...
Here it is finished and it smells divine! I wish you were here to smell it. I used nearly two cups of lavender so it is very smelly - in a good way!

And this is how far I have come with the girls. I have hand painted their faces and hair so far.. I'm not very happy with the bottom girls with the brown hair. What do you think? I think I prefer them blonde.
Maybe over the weekend I shall get them finished or change them again....

This darling little creature turned up in my letter box this morning. Isn't she just the sweetest thing you have seen. And she is in my favourite colours - pink and green.
Thanks to Rosemary4Rememberance on Etsy. Check her out - she makes the greatest needle felt items.


Are you sick of cat hair/fur everywhere? Well one of these might just be the ticket. I have made a little quilt for my cat.
My parcel post lady, who I always love the sight of, suggested that "Coco" might be a little spoilt! "No" I said. Well, thinking about it now, I think she might be...



I think she likes it....



Woh, I'd better go and pick the "kids" up from school.
Anyone else looking forward to the holidays? This term has been way too long I say...

Kathryn i think the girls look perfectly sweet with their brown hair, its really suits the fabric you chose. They are gorgeous.
Now if Coco is spoilt then what shall i call the 5 furry kittys that live here??? LOL. Actually its their home, im just renting space from them!
But i do love Cocos blankie and she looks pretty happy with it too in that lovely spot. Shes a cutie.

have a gorgeous weekend!
