Handmade Monday #43

Welcome to another Handmade Monday, our weekly craft link up. 
Handmade Monday is a place to share your makes, bakes and other handmade craft ideas and find some new inspiration.

I've been doing a bit of this and that this week, including making some 'Daisies for Vicky':

Two of my bloggy friends, Lynda's Craft Room and The Wee House of Crochet, are holding a crochetathon in Warrington on 21st October and are asking for donations of squares in this pattern from people who can't go along on the day. It's a fundraiser for Victim Support in memory of their friend Vicky Wynne-Jones. If you are interested in joining in, details about the crocheting can be found on The Wee Hookers facebook page and the page to donate - with a chance to win one of the daisy blankets they are making - is here.

Now here are the features from last weeks Handmade Monday:
I love a beautiful handmade card and Linda from Paper Seedlings often shares a fun new technique. I love how she's given these stamps a bandana look just using a gel pen. She explains it all here.

Julie from Julie's Creative Lifestyle has crocheted some lovely little dishcloths and shared the pattern links to. I must put these on my to do list. 

Congratulations to you both, here is a "Yay! I was featured" button for your blog.
