Handmade Monday #26

Hello and welcome to Handmade Monday, our weekly crafty linky.
It's good to have you join us for another Handmade Monday, the place to share your makes, bakes and other handmade craft ideas and find some new inspiration.
How has your week been? Any exciting craft projects on the go? I spent this morning finishing a birthday gift for one of my nieces. 
It's her birthday on Friday so I can't share the whole thing just yet. The frustrating thing is I started this way back in February and after the embroidery bit it just sat there until today. Is there a word for that? I was going to say I was procraftinating but actually I think procraftiation is when you make stuff instead of doing housework and chores!

Anyway, enough about me, let's take a look at the features from last week's Handmade Monday:
Claire from Pillar Box Blue turned an old window frame into a beautiful herb planter. It sounds like it was not a project without it's challenges but I like knowing how other people overcome problems when their ideas don't go immediately to plan. This turned out beautifully in the end too.

I love a good clothing refashion and Lina from Sew Historically has collected a whole bunch of ideas to inspire us to reuse old t- shirts. She has an ongoing linky added too so you can find even more inspiration or join in and add your own.

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