Baby Blanket by Alynnis Crochet

YAY, thank you & welcome to  Lynne from Alyniss Crochet for not only joining us, but for dazzling us with your scrumptious baby blanket – the edging is absolutely stunning! The colours work so well together – so soft, delicate and edible (well, to me anyway but I’m sure you agree!).  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed browsing Lynne’s Facebook – her crochet, colours and many stunning creations made me weak at the knees!

Spring / Christmas Wreath by Melinda Reineke

These next two entries are from Melinda Reineke, one of our Facebook page member and special family friend!!! Her floral  wreath is gorgeous (wow, the patience!). I love all the different flowers and embellishments, it looks incredible happy and perfect for the upcoming season. The wreath is made from a polystyrene base with a colourful knitted cover and lots of different crocheted flowers, added buttons and beads, all sewed in place with pearl-headed pins on some of them. Her beautiful soft shawl is made from a pattern called ‘Holden Shawlette’ and is knitted in Drops wool ♥

June Made It – Feast your eyes

Hello all your creative-Goddess-types!

Hope you are all enjoying mid year (yes, MID YEAR) sun or snow – although from what I hear, some who are supposed to be seeing the sun, are definitely are not seeing the sun!

We’ve actually had a bit of both – which is really odd as South Africa very rarely sees snow and most certainly hardly EVER in Cape Town’s city center!

It must have been snowing because my hubby finally agreed to a new puppy. Meet the newest member of your family – Koco the teensy weesny Mini Daschund. I don’t think I have to tell you who now rules the house. Seriously, it’s like having a new born baby all over again!

Another rare sight in our side of the land are this stunning flock of flamingos that have taken up residence in Kommetjie, a beautiful seaside fishing village just up the road from me. They are incredibly graceful and beautiful creatures…

Well, I am delighted to show you the next beautiful bunch of entries to the Made It challenge.  It’s halfway through June and the collection is looking INCREDIBLE, so much talent out there and I’ve a feeling there’s a lot more to come too! By the way, you may have noticed that InLinkz also has had a make over – I have to say that I’m still trying to find my way around (it’s a little confusing) so if there are any hiccups, please let me know!

Anyway, ON WITH THE SHOW!
