Grumpy Poppy stayed at home with my sister-in-law, who apparently cannot understand why she has the nickname of 'Grumpy' as she has been adorable all week! Typical! She must just save the grumpiness for us! But I'm sure she's pleased to see us really - even if it just means she can resume her rightful position on the bed again!
I will try my bestest in the next few days to catch up with everyone and see what craftiness has been going on in my absence, but just thought I'd share a couple of latest makes that have gone into my Etsy shop :
I made this cute set of 4 crocheted coasters in a sweet doily pattern - the yarn is just gorgeous, a soft variegated one that is lovely to work with
I think they'd made a cute 'house-warming' gift!
And a little cross-stitch picture that would also be ideal for a 'new home' gift. I don't tend to do a lot of cross-stitch these days, and not much for sale, but will probably do more again once the autumn arrives!
Hope you like them both! And don't forget to check out the Etsy shop - I'd love to hear your thoughts about it as all feedback is helpful!
And I just thought I'd share a couple of pics of Santorini with you - I'm waiting for my son (who is chief photographer on holiday) to let me have some of the photos he was busy taking, but these are just a couple from my phone! We took one of my son's friends with us too - and the boys had a good time in the pool and exploring!
A Santorini sunset! The 2 little figures in the distance are my son and his friend taking pics!
And a rare one of me - as I don't like having my photo taken! - with the boys. And yes, I did feel very short! My son is the tall blond one looming over me lol!
Apologies for the photo overload! Just thought I'd share a few 'sunshine' images!
I'll try to catch up with all your crafty blogs soon, and thank you as always for the lovely comments you leave for me - they mean such a lot!
