Atishooooo!! ;-) (And some awards)

The lack of variety on my blog lately... (i.e. it's been crafting, crafting and yet more crafting...) is due to the fact that during the last 6 weeks I have been nowhere , as such.
I've been outside just three times! ;-(
Once to visit my mum in hospital, once on a flying visit to get food and finally, to Nich's graduation.

The flu virus really knocked me for six..and yesterday I finally succumbed and managed to get some antibiotics to knock off a post flu infection. I am rarely ill and have always absolutely loathed putting medicines inside my body. But needs must. I've never known anything like this. It's worn me out good 'n proper!! ;-)

So, I've had to be content with staying in, keeping warm, drinking loads of fluids and crafting..but even that's been very slow...for me.

Yesterday, whilst the cat was away (!) I made these little envelopes ...using K&Co Amy Butler Lotus designs. I love scrapbooking papers as much as I do fabric , especially quality papers like these.

The reason that I made these?
I found some gorgeous hankies, recently...

Aren't they lovely?

Nice and bright..just what I like!!

Some for the fair..some for my shop!


And finally, Amy, from Abundant Curiosities in the U.S.A...
has awarded me this :

With these rules:
1. The winner may put the logo on their blog
2. Put a link to the person who sent out the award
3. Nominate three blogs for this award

I therefore nominate:

Marmalade Rose creates the most beautiful things with felt. Do take a look at her blog, she is so talented.

Hen is a lady after my own heart, similar taste in gorgeous fabrics..and you should see her hand made her various other creations, which are fantabulistic!
Joe does lots of lovely knitted bits and pieces amongst other things..and she's lovely. I know cos I've met her. ;-)
And with that,I need to sneeze..!
anyone got a hanky?!! ;-)
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

At least your prolonged illness has not dampened your spirit or your creativity Sal...
There is no end to your talents and your latest inspiration is delicious.... good enough to eat...
Might be a bit chewy though!!!!

I think I will have to send you some Sanatogen tablets!!!

How pretty, I love the things you make! I hope the antibiotics work soon. Mine are the 1st lot I've had in 11 years, I hate taking them.

Hi Sal,
Thanks very much for the award, great stuff! We do have similar tastes, I love that Amy Butler paper and have a few bits, of course! Wonder what would happen if we went shopping together, we'd need a personal bellboy to carry everything! Love your idea to put the hankies in the little envelopes, very gorgeous colours all together.
Hope you manage to knock your illness on the head very soon.
