Try it on Tuesday and some pressies

I know its Wednesday but Hubby and I snuck away overnight on Monday for a little trip up north to Dumfries to see our lovely friends Janet and Chris - so here I am late again!
Tags over on the TIOT challenge so here is mine - Clover and watermelon adirondack inks and a little faux bleach with water - overstamped with a paperartsy sprig stamp and then a blonde moments bauble embossed and added. Some gold backing paper and a huge ribbon and its done. Do stop by the challenge blog here to see my team mates work.

Here is a couple of pressies I can share with you following a pattern by Joanne Wardle here
I just missed out the pocket and added some crochet flowers - thanks Mum!
I think these are fab for token gifts - just beware I got my bottles from the £1 shop - I bought these 2 then a few weeks later bought another 2 and the second 2 are fatter and a little larger than these so I need to make some pattern adjustments - shame I had already made the covers! now I need to do some speed knitting to get them finished!


  1. Your tag is just luscious and luxurious. Sounds like you had a good fun week-end away well deserved. Did you see that you won the Craft-Room Random draw? email me to find out more XOXO Zoe

  2. Ow how I've missed "making" pressies for people. I think that's why it hasn't felt right for the past few years. I an so going to make stuff next year!! Thanks for the festive inspiration :D XXX

  3. Hi Janet - hope you are well, just looking over your last few posts which are beautiful. Loving the knitting - I admire anyone who can knit because to be honest I can't LOL! Sending you hugs

  5. Wow I just love this gorgeous tag Janet, the colours are fabulouos and work so well together. The water bottle covers are great too and so useful now the weathers turned so cold. I'm itching to get the needles out now. See what you've done LOL! xx
