Tidying Up

For months, the small front room has, to all intents and purposes, been my crafting room. I've had a pile of boxes filled with crafting supplies, old shoe boxes filled with finished makes and a pile (in fact a huge pile) of fabric inherited from my grandparents. My grandpa was a tailor's cutter so he had a special love of fabric and he was also a great tailor in his own right and my granny could make a suit without a bought pattern (in fact she used to make her own patterns - she was a really clever lady). The room was gradually becoming messier and messier until this weekend.

We had to prepare the house for my dd's German exchange partner which meant tidying up everything (which was long overdue). The end result is a very tidy room downstairs and most of my crafting resources banished to the garage for the next week so no crafting for a while. So here's some pictures to keep us going until something new is crafted.

I need to make some more of these beach huts as I only have a few left.

And some more owls in different colour combinations - I can feel my creative juices starting to flow.

We'll be out and about from Wednesday for a week so things my slow down on here for a while but be rest assured that we'll be having lots of fun, visiting different places and spending lots of time outdoors. I hope you all have a lovely week and remember to think happy thoughts when you're surrounded by the madness of work.


  1. Oh my, this is the cutest owl ever! I love the way the stitching adds to the embellishment. Hope you are having a great week!

  2. I love your beach hut and your owl too - I can just see so many colour combinations that can go together.
