In the meantime, I've been stashbusting in lots of ways -
I re-made this lampshade a couple of years ago, because the original didn't give out much light, with the then-new energy saving bulbs. Recently, I'd decided to give the very dated base the shabby treatment.
So - I sprayed it matt white. I'm pleased with the result, but can't decide whether I want to leave it alone, paint it (pastel colour) and/or decoupage it. What do you reckon?
This is the
glory hole desk this evening. The plastic wallets (back left) are the sorted photo's that I'm putting into albums (prob 8-10 of them) for Mum's 90th birthday in August. The rest of the clutter is because I've got several WIPs on the go (typical flutterby situation). They include
birthday cards, so I can keep a handy supply
'thinking of you' cards for the prayer group at church to send, as an encouragement to anyone who needs it
and ATCs for the swap, which I can't show yet.
I'm trying to use stash I've inherited, as well as bought, for all the above, so I find it takes much longer to do than with purpose-bought, matching materials.
More stashbusting - I finished the little waistcoat tonight for our 2yr old godson. I'm pleased that I finally used the yarn I bought about 20 years ago, for a cardi for me!! Even the buttons came from Auntie's inherited button tin. It doesn't show clearly here, but the dark green yarn has red and yellow fibres in it.
Last but not least, look at the fab birdhouse I received yesterday from the lovely Cindy, from her April art draw. How pretty is that?! It will take pride of place on the craft room wall. Thank you so much, Cindy, for your generosity.
Hope to see you over at Julia's for the Wednesday bash. Click the WOYWW button on my side bar for a magic carpet ride there.
Have a great week, everyone, and I'll try to visit all the WOYWW desks tomorrow/Thursday.
