Today I entered 6 categories and got prizes in 5! Yay!!
There were some lovely flowers, vegetables, crafts, baking and floral art and the childrens section had great collections of seeds, wild flowers, herbs, mini-gardens and vegetable animals!! Chewbacca makes a winning gingerbread character…

Here we are inhabiting the craft cabinet at the Brindley Arts Centre (www.thebrindley.org.uk). Lots of cute wee things from the fabulous Replic’elfs and planetaye-ayes! Goan have a nosey, we’ll be there for the next few weeks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A wee sneaky peek at some of the wee, tiny things I’m putting in the craft cabinet at The Brindley this weekend. I’m really pleased how these turned out. ๐Ÿ˜‰

After treating myself to a nice book (100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet) I found it difficult to stop. But I also had to get a wee encyclopedia of crochetย  since I’m still a novice with the single needle. I have tied the primroses into a wee posy that sits neatly inside a new Ikea shot glass, the shamrock and thistle are single testers and I did already have some appropriate colours handy. Overall pretty pleased with making flowers and can sit watching telly whilst getting on with a few leaves.
The hinged frame is covered with a set of floral stamps, I really should give it an other coat or two of varnish but one will do for now I think. Patience is not my strong suit when it comes to watching paint dry!
