Laura's visit

Dear Blogger friends

Thank you for sticking with me in my little blogger break. I'm back now and I shall get straight on with the things I made for Laura's visit.

Laura and her Hubby celebrated their 2nd wedding anniversary in September so I made them this biscornu in an Anchor Vari thread from a pattern I found on the web somewhere.

I also made them a Fox and Raccoon feltie from the Made in Felt magazine complete with their initials on it. I've made several things from the magazine now and it was well worth the money. I just hope they bring out another edition of it.

 I also made Laura a little Minion from Despicable Me. He was a fun little thing to stitch.


Laura came armed with some yummy cakes, which didn't last long, even though I'd made lemon cakes and choc chip cakes too. I was very very lucky to receive this amazing giraffe that stands almost 12" tall!!! He lives next to the ami basket as he's too big to in. I get so many lovely comments about him when we have visitors.

I had a lovely day with Laura, we had a coffee or in Laura's case a Hot choc in one of the cafes in town and then we had a mooch about in the craft shops, before coming back to my house where Laura showed me the progress on her quilt, and I must say it looks amazing, mine is still rather small!!! It doesn't stop me collecting fabric for it though!

So next up is my day with Steph. It's so lovely to be able to meet my lovely blogger friends.

Thanks for reading :-)
