KHS for August…

Yesterday we had KHS at Michelle's place, and the day just went way too fast! Michelle made a delicious Banana and Blueberry loaf for morning tea and a cheese ball with bagel crisps, it was truly scrumptious! For lunch she made a yummy Chicken and pumpkin lasagne, salad and rolls! As well as a yummy dessert/slice… I didn’t have any dinner last night as I was still full from lunch…:O)

This month’s theme was buntings, as you know from my last post I left mine to the last minute, I think most of you guessed it was bunting and Nicky even guessed the word… clever girl! So here it is…

And the girls made…from the left Nicky made a paper doily bunting with flowers and one made from old milk tokens… from the top right, Claire made one with doily's sewn onto lace and one made out of vintage hanky’s and old brooches…so many ideas!!!

Michelle hasn’t made hers yet (it is calving season in her neck of the woods too!) but she has some fabulous ideas…

I also received some gorgeous goodies for my birthday(yeah it was last month but we didn’t end up meeting up last month…;O) sew I had to wait very patiently for an extra month and it was certainly worth it…

Nancy bought me the gorgeous blue tin you see in the first photo, it was filled with knitted dishcloths and liquid soap, Nicky made me the cute cloche with the doily, Claire gave me the teacup and saucers, Michelle with a little help form her hubby made me two teacup bird feeders, the beautifully wrapped plant was also from Claire… Claire also bought me a fabric heart sachet, a candle and matches in a pretty box… and Michelle also bought me a jar candle holder…:O) Thank you girls for making me feel so spoilt, I feel very blessed!

Next month we are making dolls, I better make a start on them soon… don’t want to leave it until the last minute again…

Blessings

Michelle
