Handmade Monday #30

It's time for another Handmade Monday!
Welcome to Handmade Monday, the place to share your makes, bakes and other handmade craft ideas or just find some new inspiration.

How is everyone? Spending time making a fuss of any Dad's in your life I hope. Have you had any time for making or baking this week? I rustled up a quick Father's Day card for my dad inspired by the idea shared here last week by The Crafty Lumberjacks. I did mine a little differently from their tutorial in the end, just using what I had, but "Thanks guys" for the idea!

Now, without further ado, here are the features from last weeks linky:
I'm amazed by the beautiful attention to detail that Lina from Sew Historically put into this beautiful Edwardian Lace combing jacket. To be honest I'd never even heard of a combing jacket so it was a little history lesson at the same time.

Wendy from My French Twist shared this beautiful macrame hanging herb garden. As a child of the 70's I have a soft spot for macrame so I love to see a modern take on it like this. 

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