I am thinking today of all my crafty pals down at the SECC in Birmingham for the Stitches show. All the new crafty releases on show with classes and demonstrations.
It's a super time to catch up with folk and all the crafty gossip.
I did look at last minute flights to get down there, ouch is all I'm going to say!
I couldn't have gone today anyway as hubby is on a 12 hour shift and the kids are off school, it being the last day of their half term holidays.
What have I been up to over the weekend?
I had a good morning at work Saturday followed by lunch out with the family in Elgin and a potter around town....all things kitchen!
We're getting there slowly but surely.
As for my mirror that is finished (Sunday's job).
I've now just got to decide where to hang it. (A close up)
Think shabby chic!
Or that is what I was aiming for. I've used Anne Sloan chalk paint and wax. I think I might be converted!
The whole mirror.....must apologise for the photo as I was trying not to be in it but the dog well she just wouldn't move.
Not the best picture to see the finished article but hopefully with the close up you'll get the idea.
Back to today and with the kids at home I'm rattling on with the housework plus getting them ready to go back to school tomorrow, homework and uniforms etc... In the hope that later in the week I'll get some crafty time. I have some cards I need to make for orders and my cushions to finish...material, thread and zip at the ready, just need to dust my sewing machine down.
Talking of sewing I see the Sewing Bee is coming back tomorrow night, can't wait, will you be watching?
It only remains for me to wish you all the best for the coming week. Have fun! x
