*****Melli & Moi*****

My great niece has been with us for a week and boy have we had some fun. Mel or Melli loves to craft as I do so we have had almost a full week of playing. She decribes my work area as a sweetie shop and non fattening into the bargain. So I thought I would show you a few things we came up with.

 The necklace above is a mixture of old T-shirts and the cord from a curtain tieback along with a few beads(we used the inside cord for a necklace further down the page)
Dahlia flower with a lace wrapped rose brooch
Rosette hair/dress clip
Headband with three suffolk puffs
Knew I would find a use for my old dress
Tartan hair clip
Friendship necklace

Mellie showed me how to make a  friendship bracelet, loved how simple and fun to make it was, so we took it to another level by making it into a necklace, the one above was made by using the inside cord of a curtain tieback, we removed the outer threads and then made the necklace with seven strands, then added suffolk puffs with little mop buttons for the centre. I found a site which has a tutorial for making the bracelets/necklace and they are easy and take about an hour and very theraputic. Here's the link if you fancy trying one for yourself.

Melli also loves making cakes and is looking at training for advanced cake making. Here are a couple of her cakes. Thanks for a fun week Meli xxx
