Usually, when I get free gifts on magazines I don't use them.
Not in their entirety anyway. I usually add to my stash of buttons and ribbons and pop any stamps with my card-making stuff.
My first exception to an entire Freebie was this Tea Cosy back in February, remember?
Well, now another Freebie has been utilised! I sound surprised because I wasn't expecting to do anything either with it OR at all this morning. But I decided an extra hour in bed would do me good.....but I was bored!
I glanced over to a pile of magazines I had sorted through and the top one was this......
.... and sitting next to it the free gift! This.....
Remember these from the 70's? My Mum had one and I have vague recollections of her making a scarf!
Not wishing to leave out Little Lady, I found 2 of her favourite colours (remember the ORANGE Boutique Bag here that I made for the March 2012 Pinaddicts Challenge?).
Hope you like these.......ready......
They took about 20 minutes each, use very little yarn (so are perfect for your scrap stash!) and we think would make great little gifts for little girls..... or maybe fundraisers for charities or schools...?
Come on Crafty Friends....give 'em a go!
Not satisfied with just that sort of making today, I've been baking too !
The beeper just went on the Bread Machine, so I've grabbed a quick photo of our loaf and a HUGE pile of Oaty Biscuits, like the ones in this post.
It smells D-I-V-I-N-E ............ and look.......
I hope you have a creative weekend.....and lets hope there will be less rain and a bit more glorious sunshine to enjoy.
