WOYWW!!! Wednesday 11th March 2015

Hello crafters

Welcome to another Wednesday.  What's On Your Work Desk today?

Hope the week has gone okay so far for you.  The weather has certainly changed a lot, with lovely sunshine and the hint that spring/summer is upon us with all the lovely flowers appearing.  I've seen some lovely crocuses and daffodils around.  Beautiful flowers!  The clocks will be changing soon and although we'll lose an hour as the clocks 'spring' forward it will be the much needed lighter evenings, which I'm looking forward to so much.

With the spring weather in mind I've been turning to different colours for my colouring of lovely spring colours of greens, blues and pinks and using the new collection called EDEN from Polka Doodles.

Follow the Thumb Linkies at the bottom for the new collection full of beautiful digis (black and white and coloured) of all things fairy like and totally gorgeous pretty papers and embellishments.

The images I've printed out are ready and waiting on my craft desk.  One of them I've coloured already with my Graph It pens and made up into a card that I'll show you this weekend so keep watching this space, but the others are on my desk waiting.

Here you are:

One of them I've already coloured the skin (my favourite part of all colouring it has to be said)

The others are waiting:

And this one I've decided to do in shades of blues to co-ordinate with some flowers that I've chosen from my stash:

Can't wait to get started on these beauties so pop back over the weekend to see what I've created.

Take care

Yarn Dyeing

Hello everybody

Well I haven't done any yarn dyeing since the end of last summer and forgot about a lot of the stuff that I'd dyed, but since I've been working hard on revamping my craft room to organise it so it's more art and painting friendly, I've come across them all and as I hadn't shared any photos with you of my  dyeing for a while I thought I'd share them.

First up was a blank canvas knitted base that I bought as long ago as June 2015 from Woolfest.  The canvas is a long knitted piece of fabric with two separate ends so that you can dye it however you choose and then unravel it to make two identical balls of yarn.  I used a length of cling film on top of the work top and used Kool Aid to dye the canvas and then wrapped it up in cling film and put it in the microwave.  Once it had cooled I then rinsed it and popped it outdoors on the line to dry and then once dry I unravelled it into two equal and identical balls which are now waiting in my stash r…

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 4 - In Bloom

Hello everybody             
It’s Digi Choosday day again. These Tuesdays definitely come round really fast!!
Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.
This week our challenge is  ‘IN BLOOM’.
I love searching the internet for new things to make and also getting inspiration and as soon as I saw the craze for making teacup art I instantly knew that this week’s challenge would fit this project perfectly.  I had a teacup that had a wonderful soy candle in it and was wondering what I could make with the empty cup.  Here is a step by step picture tutorial of my make (with the exception of one ingredient which is magic and you'll have to scroll to the bottom of my blog post to find out what it is).  I resized and printed some of the flowers from the Eden Collection and put them to one side.  I gathered my ingredients...  cup and saucer, bird cage, toadstools and reindeer moss and then using the magic ingredient started to assemble my make.

I then added the flowers and…

Long time no post....

Hello everyone

Well I know I've not blogged for months and months, but I've been really busy and have been making the most of other social media platforms to chat with happy crafters and the like. 

But I'm back now and hopefully I should get to blogging maybe once a week or a couple of times a month.....who knows. 

Let me tell you what I've been up to whilst I've been absent from blogland.


1.  I had a big birthday in the summer and got a wonderful birthday present of a Townie bike and so spent every spare moment during the spring and summer (cos I got my present a little earlier than expected) taking in parks and other beautiful places and getting some fresh air and exercise and loved every minute of it.  But now that the nights are now darker earlier and winter is setting in I'm not able to get out and so she's been put to bed for a few months until the clocks go forward and the light nights come back.  So....hurry up winter and do one!!!

2.  Just…
