Bee happy .... let the purchases roll in! and make with Tilda

My Internet shopping is beginning to turn up at last! how slow things take when you are waiting for them!  So far this week I've had by Everything Alice book and now my scrabble tiles.


I found these wooden scrabble squares on Etsy and had to have them :)

Tilda has been keeping me company while I am house bound.

I love her books and the instructions are so easy inside.

I had a go at making a scalloped edge pocket to hold things in.



I used CK fabric but instead of using a hole punched in the back to hang up my bag I used East of India ribbon and a couple of cute buttons.


I've also kept myself busy this week adding a few bits to my Etsy and Folksy shops.


Had to show you this photo.  The bees love the lavender on our newly washed patio and snapped this bee mid air, how cool is that!

Bee happy x
Have a delicious day!

  11. I like those tiles lots - at the moment I'm using some vintage ones I picked up in a CS but eventually I'll run out of the rarer letters - handy to know I'll be able to find something suitable :)
