The other day I got a phonecall inviting my little girl to a birthday party at very short notice. As I don't drive and have no shops nearby, I had to come up with a present in a short space of time. I rummaged around in my craft stash and made up some little packets with ribbons and sequins and beads. I also added some stickers I had made. The cupcake stickers are made with a xylon sticker maker from prints of my coloured pencil illustrations.
I then made three little matchboxes from my matchbox template which I made a little bigger than usual and then stuck the three boxes together to make a little chest of drawers.
It just fitted some post it notes in the top drawer. Phew...present solved! (I added one of my handmade necklaces to the gift too.)
And this morning, I have wasted at least an hour looking for a piece of leather that I know is stashed somewhere in this rather overstocked house. I have already removed the old fabric from this chair (bought for £1 at my local auction) and bought the upholstery tacs and was ready to get on with this project. The project has now come to a standstill while I have a sortout and clearout in my utility room. I wonder if I'll even find it! Grrr! Yet another project I have started and not finished!
