Finished by Friday and a smile

Another Friday rolls around and here we are again with a few things to share with you all.
Firstly, one of Maxine's little needle felted and embroidered pictures.
It's a tiny dumfling mounted on linen in a small re-cycled frame. The photo doesn't really do it justice as it was a bit gloomy when I took the picture on the patio table today. I really love the colours and textures she has used. I now need to find or buy frames for the other dozen or so that she has created. Any ideas on inexpensive framing?
I have lost count of how many little hoodies I have made over the last 5 years. They are just an easy little knitting project that I can do whilst watching tv so I am happy to keep busy with them. This one is for my neighbours little grandson.

 And here is my Friday smile.....

Every cloud has a silver lining. We had wild winds and torrential rain yesterday. It completely flattened these gorgeous little blooms so I decided just to cut them all and bring them indoors. What a beautiful cheery colour they are! (Some kind of Schizostylis - common name Kaffir Lily, I think).

Follow my link here to Annie's blog for more Friday smiles.

Have a great weekend.

Those shops called The Works were selling lots of little stretched canvases very cheaply when I was last in England. You could hot glue the picture to one of those, or cover it with crash or linen or sacking first...

Those flowers are gorgeous Jo. What a bright cheery colour on this gloomy day.

Goodness! How do you ever get anything done with a view out of the window like that?
Have you tried Ikea for cheap frames?
Happy Friday

I love the little picture and that warm hoodie.
I used to have Kaffir lilies in my garden back in UK and they always make such a cheerful patch of colour, indoors or out. Kate x

First, I apologize that I haven't been round to see your WOYWW post, yet, but time (and real life) got in the way.

Second, those flowers are incredibly beautiful. I've never seen anything like them. So glad you were able to rescue them.

Yes, we had rain here that day too! I was out walking dogs in it! I thought, they'll going to hate it and not want to play ball or anything, but they loved it! I took a picture but it was too smudged for Friday Smiles, I was drenched! Happy late smile day!
