Handmade Monday #16

Welcome to Handmade Monday, our weekly craft linky.
Come and join us, share your makes, bakes and other handmade craft ideas or just find some new inspiration.

How's your week been? Have you had time for any crafting? I received a skein of the most beautiful yarn from EasyKnits.co.uk, so I've been balling it up and testing it out with some samples squares.


Now onto the features from last week's Handmade Monday.
Vicky and her family made this lovely pebble wall hanging after a day out together. what a great way to involve everyone and make something beautiful too.

Lina from Sew Historically made her own stamps with nothing more than a scrap of craft foam and an old cork. I'm a sucker for keeping corks, they look like they are going to be useful so I have quite a tub full now and this is such a versatile idea. 

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