Barbara’s Treasures

Our friend Barbara is recuperating from a reconstructed shoulder operation so we called over to give her a “Get Well” gift on behalf of the  Caravan Club.  No doubt Bill will be under instruction to plant the pretty cascading rose bush in the garden as soon as possible.

Barbara loves all sorts of handwork and she had been very lucky to receive some craft items as gifts recently.  Daughter Jacqui had been attending craft classes and working in felted wool.  She had made these lovely felted wool flowers and gave them to her Mum.  Felting wool is quite slow and labour intensive so making these large flowers would have taken some time to make.  The flowers are gorgeous and full of colour and Jacqui did a wonderful job in creating them.

Another of Jacqui’s creations was this lovely little framed picture featuring tiny felt flowers.  There are lots of lovely colours in this selection too.
Barbara told us how she arrived home one day to find a surprise package waiting on the doorstep.  Her friend Margaret had packed an Easter Basket with Mother Hen and lots of colourful little chickens.  What a wonderful Easter gift to receive.

Cup Cakes are all the rage these days and Barbara has made her own calorie free selection of these little goodies. Don’t they look sweet?

It was great to catch up with Barbara again, and see her new craft treasures.   We wish her a speedy recovery and hope she gets back to her own craft work once that shoulder is healed and fully operational again.
