If there's one thing I'm good at it's faffing about. I have a whole host of half-made thingies and keep promising myself I'll complete them. Still, I'm not the only one. Spring is only half-made too. She doesn't appear properly till the end of March.
This week I am mostly WIP-ing...
the unravelling of an old cardi...
a beach bag/tote...
...and painting a £2.50 charity shop doll's house. It's been undercoated and a few blobs of pale blue paint added. I intend to make it into a "New England-style boathouse" (somehow!)
treated myself to accidentally bought myself some presents (hence the "Whoops!"). Good old TK Maxx. I love the fact that you can get a great selection of one-off items at this shop. It's a bit like posh charity shop shopping.
A small and pretty tin containing a delightfully fresh-smelling soap
Another pretty box, this time containing 30 sheets of gorgeous writing paper and 30 soft grey envelopes by Nina Campbell. Almost too lovely to use. Same with the soap possibly.
Oh, and before I forget, something I have actually finished. I collected two free old wallpaper swatch books from my local soft furnishings shop. The paper inside was a heavy, flexible type with an almost fabric-like feel. I cut out three of the sheets, folded them in half and machined up two sides. I then folded over the top, made a few slits and threaded lace and ribbon through.
Et voila! Three pretty gift bags for my d-in-l's birthday presents, at no expense whatsoever!
