With the leftover material I have been making a couple of things, a pot holder/oven thingy for the kitchen and a tiny cosy for our tiny camper tea pot. The cosy was quite difficult which surprised me.......hey ho, they say you learn something new every day.

Anyone that knows me well knows I have a real love for lighthouses. I just fell in love with this fabric from ebay and had the perfect project in mind, replacement cushion covers for the cushions in our camper van.

The Cool Crafting kit came with everything you need for a wool felt raglan coat which I made a little while ago and this gorgeous polka dot dress. The only thing I have changed is that I put the two tiny buttons on the front and not the back on top of the press studs and I just hemmed the bottom as I didn't have enough bias binding to put around the bottom - my mistake not the kits.
I have one more kit to do the jeans, shirt and waist coat kit, but I have other things to do first......
Bought some gorgeous fabric from ebay this week to make new cushions for the camper van, it's so cute.......

.....you plant bulbs in your garden troughs in September, forget all about them until they start to poke little green shoots out of the soil at the end of January - giving a little indication that Spring might be around the corner.
You spend a couple or three weeks wondering what you put in there and what colours they will turn out to be.....
AND then you are totally blown away by the beautiful, delicate little flowers that open up despite hideously weather - ice, snow, wind, rain.....
Then you realise the cycle of life has begun all over again, winter is receding, new life is being created and Spring is nearly here.
Enjoy your weekend everyone.
