Wednesday 11 July 2012


Hi everyone, can't believe it's Wednesday again already. Thanks for the lovely comments last week and your advice with my sewing machine. I haven't had chance to play with it properly yet but hopefully I will soon. Here's my workspace today...
 You can't really see much so I'll show you some close ups...
 This is my box containing my Lake District scrapbook. I've printed out some Sheep piccies to make another page. You can also see the brilliant buttons I bought a few years ago in the Lakes with the intention of making a scrapbook but never got round to it...
 This is a design I've been working on for Bridesmaid thank you cards. I've made the template myself (yes I actually hand drew the shapes!) and paper pieced it. I'm really hoping my friend likes it, then we have to talk colours...
 And lastly, my freebies waiting to be used. There's the love Edwardian Lady stamps which came with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine and the latest Club Member freebie from Create and Craft - The Hunkydory Tea Party luxury card collection.

Not sure how much crafting I'll get done today though as I really must tidy the house. I've been busy for the last few days and need to catch up. Also, I can't wait for Friday - Summer Crafting Workshop at Doncaster Racecourse, followed by the craft fair there on Sunday...Hopefully next week I'll have some new goodies to show you. Right, better go get on. I hope to catch up with some commenting at WOYWW 163 

Thanks for stopping by, see you all soon. Happy crafting
Helen xx

  5. I had a day like that yesterday, Helen. Had to just stay off the computer and clean up the dump; it was needed. Great job on the handmade sketch for the bridesmaid thank you card!! Have a great week! Darnell #34
