A crafty weekend

I'm making the most of the last few weekends I have to myself before John comes home from France.  I have a lot of ideas for crafty things this year but so far can't seem to settle to start anything in particular.

I've had a go at a crochet heart but I'm not sure I like the decoration so may have to think of something else to go in it's place.  The pattern came via Attic24 and was quite easy to do.  It works up size wise to fit in the palm of your hand.

Then I made another Wee Hoosie.  I've cut out another 6 of these to sew up over the next few months.  They're a bit fiddly so one at a time is more than enough.  I think I'll outline the windows and door in a darker colour next time to make it stand out more.

Then finally I needed a cover for my new Kindle Fire HD.  I bought a cover for my Kindle last year but the new one is bigger so it needed a new one.

It had to be lime green of course as that's "So me" and I added a few embroidered circles which I turned into flowers.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out and am now wondering what else I can rustle up in this style!!  If I think of anything I'll need to add it to my ever growing list of things to do.
