A dilema

We collect all sorts of things in this house.  One of which is this old toy sailing boat.  It's a perfectly good sailing boat but the sails have seen better days.

An old edition of Country Living magazine has a tiny feature on such a dilemma as mine.


So now all I have to do is decide which fabric to use...hmm may not see some sailing action for a while then!

Oh dear....

How cute is this?

A gorgeous simple little deer pattern in  Cross Stitcher  magazine.  Loving the deer craze right now and haven't done any cross stitch for such a long time.  Thought it would make a lovely cushion with my daughter's name and some Leicien fabric.

Well, so much has happened since I last typed a blog post that I wouldn't know where to begin!  So instead of going over it all I will resume from today! 

First things first, I have moved!

Not really just my craft space, I now occupy a lovely little room all of my own!  So much craft stuff, so many hobbies meant I needed a dedicated space where I could leave things out without finding some felt tip marks everywhere when I got back from a five second break!

I have been very lucky to get a room of my own, but it is taking so much longer than I thought to get organised and I am missing creating rather than sorting!

The room already looks better than this and once it is all sorted I will post new pics.

Now just need some decent light and get some more dresses loaded onto the shop too.
