Latest Makes & Happy Mothers Day

Firstly let me say Happy Mothers Day to all those mums out there.  I have been spoilt by Lili and Mr G today starting with breakfast in bed and some lovely homemade presents ands cards. I am a very lucky lady and so happy that i have such a lovely daughter and hubby. 

Things in the Glover house have been so so busy these last few weeks and we have been moving Lili to a bigger bedroom which has meant moving furniture and stuff in 3 other bedrooms (never again!!).  Her room is starting to look good now though so i'll post some pics when it is fully finished.  All the housework has meant i have done very little crafting however i have managed to throw together a few projects..

 First up is kitty...  A While back i joined in a swap and my swap partner sent me a gorgeous little kitty.  I loved it so much i asked for a copy of the tutorial so i could make one and hasn't she turned out cute..
 I decided that seeing as my mum had been eyeing up my other one i would let her have this one so i made a wooden tag to go round the neck. If you want to make one here is the tutorial
 Next up is the Mothers Day card i made for my mum.  i also made one for my mother in law but forgot to take a pic before i posted it doh!

 Last up is an Ipad case i made using some owl scrap i had.  i have padded it with wadding to protect the Ipad when it is inside.
 I added velcro squares to fasten it.

  3. I'm so glad you posted the pics of your Ipad cover. I've been wanting to make one for my new Ipad but just couldn't decide what I wanted. Seeing yours, that is simple AND beautiful has certainly inspired me to get going on mine. Thanks!
