UFO's be gone!

I made a massive dint in my UFO pile this weekend. Its taken a while, but thanks to Mum and Dad baby sitting (at club Colac - all weekend!), I managed to finish these projects ...

Included is my SIL's birthday present (in the big box), my PIF gifts (from way back in March!) and Michelle's winning's from my give away last week (not made, but lovingly wrapped with the other gifts). Obviously I dont want to show any of these until they're received, but I promise I will post when I think they've landed at their new homes.

The one thing I can show you is a little gift I made from this book I recently ranted on about. Its the silver one up there on top and is for a new friend who's just recently had a baby boy.

His name is Hector the Giraffe. The pattern is super easy to follow. He has a cute little tail on the back as well.

This weeks this is theme is ...the space in which I create. I recently revamped my creative space and posted about it here. I'm still loving it but I've found that no matter how much room you have, its never quite enough! Thanks Michelle for a great theme this week. Check out Angela's blog to see the space in which everyone else creates!

Have a great week everyone!

Love Hector - will have to make him one day as I've often admired him from afar. Off to check your space.

Hector is too cute! I have that book also and he is on my "to make" list. Your wrapped packages look great - such a good feeling to finish a project!

It must feel so good to have finished your UFOs and have them all wrapped up and ready to send. I remember seeing your space before and thinking how lovely it was. Did you get the white bookcase shelvy thing from Ikea too? Love Hector and love that book.

I love that title 'UFO's be gone' - what every crafter wants to hear -because it means we can start on something else!

I was just looking at Hector last night and wondering if he would be hard to make. Your version looks lovely. I can't wait to see what's in all those other packages.

Hector is gorgeous. When you wrote about the book the last time, I commented that I was going to have to get it, well I haven't yet, but this is a great reminder to do so ;)

I didn't realise that one of those gorgeous little packages was for me!
Thankyou so much Libby!

I got my PIF today. Thank you! I love it. Lavender is my favorite scent of all time. The package smelled so lovely. I love the pin cushion too. Nice touch wrapping it up in brown paper. I love brown paper packages tied up in ribbon. They are so exciting.
