I have a few random crafty items to report on today! Firstly, do you like my handsome little Jack Russell in the picture above? He was a wonderful surprise gift from my lovely cousin in the form of a card for my recent(ish) (40th) birthday - thanks Donna :)
I couldn't bear to tuck him away in a drawer, so I ordered him a smart frame and mount from here. Now doesn't that suit him nicely?
In first picture of this post you may also notice a couple of bags hanging out on the door handle... the back one has its own post here, the front one is a scrap bucket bag I made this week as a surprise for my mum (she had mentioned several times how much she liked the one I made for myself).
I used up a bunch more orphan blocks from my scrap box, including the last remaining Farmer's Wife block seen above. The lining is a Liberty cotton twill that I have been hoarding for about the last ten years! It's nice to finally put it to good use!
Finished with a homemade twisted cord (Rowan cotton glace, no less!).
The final miscellaneous item to show is the finished shawl that I mentioned previously here. I think it turned out quite nicely, don't you?
Full details over on Ravelry :)
There we go, random ramblings complete!
