You know the feeling when you just cant resist some crafty stash, altho your cupboards, drawers boxes and more boxes are full to the brim.......
Well this is that stash..... lol
I just couldnt resist the colours and texturesSo using up my crafty bits and bobs I dug out these scraps ect to have a play

Call back to see what I came up with.....

p.s. I'm still waiting for hubby to open the attic door and find my crafty goodies and still waiting for my felting machine to arrive

Hopefully by the weekend all will be revealed....... I hope

Goodies in the Attic

For many years I have been keeping a hoard of goodies in the Attic, waiting for that time when THE TIME IS RIGHT....... that time has now come..... we have lived here for 22 yrs this year thats how long its been up there lol.....

I used to be a spinner(confessions) and had fleeces and topps just waiting to be spun, but now I have gone into a new phase(must be the moon) of playing with felting and I have just succumbed and ordered a felting machine, (this item was essential, I NEEDED it in order to use up the stash in the attic, saving money and clearing the attic at the same time, when you think about it, its SIMPLES!, well thats what I told hubby)

I have lots of plans to dye my own wool as I know in that attic somewhere is a box of dying equipment raring to be used. All I need now is a complying hubby to find the time to get out the ladders and get up in that attic

wish me luck it may take some time......... watch this space.

Happy crafting .... ju x

my own Desert Island - if only

I'm not sure what happened to January or to the beginning of Feb but hopefully I can get back into my blogging and thought I would share this picture with you,

It was taken on a French beach last week, the place was deserted with all the houses on the beach shuttered up for the winter, the only person we saw was the jogger on the beach and he could be my man friday any day of the week.......

Happy Crafting everyone and keep warm and safe.... ju x
