Something different

Hi there ...
How was your weekend? .... It is still raining here in Liverpool - been raining off and on for days though it is very warm today ... Of course we have a hose pipe ban due to the reservoirs being low(!!??) thus we are grateful for the rain to keep the flowers going and also it means I don't have to get out there and do the watering!!
I just hope that we get at least a couple of warm summer evenings when we can actually have dinner outdoors ... I love that .. the glow of  candlelight ... the sweet scent of honeysuckle and flock ... and the last few birds singing their melodious nighttime serenade ... ahhh ..
Of course being indoors means I spend more time crafting and I have been quite busy, and this afternoon I decided to use up some more scraps .....



A couple of bookmarks .... made a few of these lately .....




They are double thickness - so quite strong and the back layer also covers the stitching .... also I thought it a good idea to have somewhere to write the books you have read etc., 
Because they have embellishments on I decided to make a clear cover for each of them too ....


I'm hoping that you can make out these little covers ... they are just CD/DVD covers that I cut and machine stitched down the sides and Voila!  ...  clean protected bookmarks. 
They are such fun to make too.




I received my new spellbinders nesties today and I am looking forwards to trying them out together with my stamps from Waltzing Mouse ... So many ideas, such little time ....


Till soon, keep safe
