Happy Birthday Lisa

On Friday 20th August it was the wonderful Lisa's birthday

This Girl Is

That is her blog there, I recommend you read it, it's a marvelous blog full of sewing, crafty goodness

Her husband, Dave told me on Wednesday that it was her birthday this week (next time more notice Mr Hughes)

So I decided to make her some ribbon roses

Photobucket red ribbon rose

Two gold ribbon roses


two tiny blue ribbon roses

I made these into hair slides, so hopefully the wonderful Lisa will like them!!

Happy Birthday Lisa xx


I decided that since mini is now back to school that I did not want to spend good money on buying her a cheap scarf. I therefore decided to make her one myself!!

I bought Artesano wool

and got cracking

row number one

two tone scarfyness

it took me a few weeks, going back and forth, frogging my work every time i got it wrong (for those of you who don't know what frogging is - rip it, rip it, rip it!)

It took a long time coming but finally it was finished.


Its rather short but Rachel loves it just the length it is.

next project is a hat to match!!

I have also done 5 other things, but they're for a seperate project, they won't be posted until after the person they are for has received them!!

I hope they like them :)
