.....scratching an itch......

....you know that feeling....
 ..... when you have a crafty inspiration.....

....but life keeps getting in the way....
....and stops you knuckling down
....and just doing it?
....well i've been carrying around an idea for weeks...
.... but work and deers (and little coats)
and children were taking up any spare
crafty time.....
...well yesterday I managed to just do it...
....all from scratch... and hardly 
without a break....
....here she is....
... Ellie the lavender elephant...
filled with......
well.... lavender of course!!
Phew!
Such a relief.....now onto the next one....

  10. Hi Emma,
    Love Ellie......very cute & I'm sure will be a good seller.
    I know what you mean about getting "an itch"......I often have it and get a wee bit frustrated when work, cooking, cleaning etc gets in the way.
    Have a good week
