Bead Challenge - Charity Auction

Well Sunshine Daisy & Baby Alien have been so busy!! They volunteered to take part in a bead challenge for charity organised by Creative Connections on Facebook - lots of people received a pack of beads and from that we were to make something that could then be put up for auction for charity.  

They were so excited when the beads arrived, just look at all those fabulous colours and Baby Alien was so taken with the little snowman bead, he immediately claimed that one for his make (even though he didnt know what to make yet!).  They got a lovely thank you card too just for agreeing to take part, they were so impressed!  So eager to start they divided up the beads and went for a big think about what to make!

 Sunshine Daisy thought she would make a felt heart and decorate it with the beads.  She promised to do her bestest ever stitching and worked really hard on her heart (she's quite a dab hand with a needle and thread!) 

Just look how pleased she was with her finished heart!  We had to agree she did an excellent job stitching all the little beads around the outside edge, hope you like it! 

 Baby Alien was still transfixed by the snowman bead, so he decided it would go on top of a Christmas Tree in a hoop.  He spent hours stitching all the beads onto his felt tree (its not easy doing stitching when you have no hands!

He was so pleased with his make, it does look good doesnt it!  I promised he can help decorate our real tree nearer Christmas (I may have to find some snowmen decorations for him too!) 

Both their makes are up for auction this weekend on the Creative Connections Facebook page - the auction ends at 8.00pm on Monday 8th December - fingers crossed they both get bids on their items and raise lots of money for charity.  If you'd like to see how they are getting on - follow this link:   Auction Album
Keep your fingers crossed for them!
