Hope everyone is good spirits and having a nice weekend. I am not really around today as I am off to go to a British Film Festival screening of an Alan Rickman directed film. Can't wait! This is the second year I've nabbed some tickets, last year I saw Only Lover's Left Alive, and this year I am off to see 'A Little Chaos'. So I'll be diving out the door shortly to head up into town, which means a short blog post from me.
So what have I been doing, well it's been a busy time at work so I've been rather shattered of late which is a bit of a shame as I've been getting back into doing a spot of stitching in the evening. Was also somewhat wiped out last weekend so I didn't actually do a great deal, hence the lack of posting. But other than that I've been making stock for the Christmas fair, and sorting out a few orders over on Etsy.
There is one thing I just wanted to show off and that's that smashing looking tin (See above piccie), now I bought that last year, not long after I moved to Farnham. There is a great second hand furniture place in town and I saw it and had to get it. Of course, at the time I didn't really know what I was going to use it for, but hey, I love storage...so up until yesterday it's been sat on shelving unit gathering dust.
Then I thought sprang to mind that its about time I did something with it and I need ways of displaying stock for the Christmas Fair. And that's how it happened. With a spot of measuring, I've managed to wedge fabric covered card into the lid and into the bottom, handily there is a bit of an inner ledge on the bottom half so that covered card slotted in well. Rather pleased with it :)
And you know what you don't need to be a perfectionist when it comes to wrapping fabric round card, the proper way I am sure would have seen me lace it with a needle and thread, instead I used sticky tape....HELL if it works what does it matter? And anyway, you can't see it.
That's it for now folks, if you've got any re-purposed projects you've recently completed do share!
