Pinterest PinChicks monthly challenge

wow February has come to an end already so that means time for the PinChicks to share their projects...
here is what I chose to make.

Crochet slippers!

I'm not happy with the felt heart, I think maybe some beads would be better, what do you think?

nice and cozy!

These didn't take very long to make but i'm only a uk size 3 so they are only little.

you can find the pattern here

I hope you will pop over to see what out other pinchicks have created this month.

next is Margaret


And our newest member
Imoshen, you can see her first pin at 
Pls forgive me if this doesn't work only I'm using my iPad and still learning. If it doesn't work I'll hop on the laptop in the morning and correct it.
WELCOME Imoshen!

if anyone wants to join us pls contact one of us for details but basically all you have to do is pick a project from pinterest and give it a try. it can be crochet, knitting, papercraft, gardening or even a cleaning tip. Absolutely anything goes as long as you found it on pinterest.
the main rule is that you have to blog about your project and show it us even if it was a complete fail... it will give us all a giggle if it went wrong LOL
I'm usually the one at the top of the fail list but I have so much fun trying something new.

please feel free to join us.

sugar bowl challenge 134

hello crafty friends,
Its time for another challenge at the sugar bowl.
the challenge is for a whole month so there is plenty of time to enter and the theme is anything goes but remember to use an image from sugar Nellie or your entry will be removed.
here is my DT card for this month....
I love these fairies!
this one is available in rubber or as a digi over at Funky Kits.
I've added some flowers made with a memory box cherry blossom die and my new 'love' sentiment die which is from Paper Smooches.
the stitched hearts are also memory box but I'm not sure which brand of doily die that is so if anyone knows please leave me a message.
I've also used my new light studio to take the photo. Its not perfect but its a huge improvement and well worth the money.
I hope to see a few of my crafty friends joining in this this months challenge.
hugs for now....
Suzanne xx
