Bee happy .... change things

After changing my CK quilt cover I got carried away with trims and added some to plain hand towels.

I used my gorgeous East of India ribbons and some pom pom trim.

I have also had a go at making strawberries from my lovely Tilda books.

You can see the different shapes as I got better at it!

When I bought my CK quilt cover in TK Maxx I found another crown, couldn't resist.  I filled it with my Laura Ashley roses.

I also popped back to Lakeland and used my remaining credit on a PIP bowl.

And finally, I can't remember who asked, but here's a close up on what is holding my ribbon pole up.

A small screw from net curtain wire with ribbon looped around the pole and then hooked up.

Hope this helps :)

Bee happy x
Have a delicious day!
