March monthly makes.

As there's only a couple of days left I thought I'd better get the camera out and show you what I've made this month, so here goes....

I had this gorgeous strawberry fabric that I wasn't sure what to do with so I covered a "garden journal" with it and I also made some jam pot covers that I forgot to take a piccy of!

I put one of my "I love my garden"  labels on the spine and added a couple of buttons to finish it off, why not eh.

Then there was this little doggie that I made for Lilly my friends grandaughter,

Lilly loves her "stanley" and carries him everywhere, now nanna wants one too!!

I've started to crochet these tiny hearts to make into a bunting for Alexa's bedroom, but sometimes tiny things take longer to do than big things 'cause you feel like you're starting and stopping all the time if you know what I mean. Anyway only about another fifty to go!!

And finally I thought I'd add this rather handsome chap that I painted (on a course) a few years ago, (does that count?)

Isn't Charlie gorgeous? He's going to "strut his stuff" in the garden this summer when I've given him a couple of coats of varnish.

That's about it I think, oh, except for the dog, birdies and covered journal that I sent to Betty in the swap so I suppose that's quite a bit, I wondered why I've never had a minute!!

Right I'd best go and glam myself up a bit as I'm going out for lunch with a friend.

Bye for now

That strawberry fabric is so lovely and would be perfect for covering jam pots etc. I love what you did with the book - great idea.
