A Mini HD & Other Stories.


I am starting with my new note board. I have always loved these but a) they are expensive and b) they never matched my colour scheme, so I decided to have a go at making one from my old corkboard. I am thrilled with the result. It may not be professional but I am happy that an old cork board, a bit of old fabric and some webbing, which I had in the house, have been used for a good purpose. I started with a large reel of plain white ribbon and found when I had done half of it that the centre of the reel was very large too so how much ribbon had been there was nowhere near what I imagined. Never mind I had another reel of white with a gold thread in it – so I used that to go in the opposite direction and I rather like the effect, though some of the squares are more square than others. And before certain friends point out that a square is a square and not a rectangle – I know lol.

The craft room is coming on nicely and most of the paper crafting end is sorted, if not quite how I want it at the moment, at least where I can find things. I need to make some new desk tidy things to store stuff that I need on the desk and I am wondering about a couple of those small storage units to go under the worktops – the plastic draw type things. I am not sure how sturdy they are but they would at least keep tidy some of the things I do not want to part with but really do now want on show. I am sure you all have things like that, bubble wrap, which I often need so do not want to part with – but not what you want sitting on the shelves. Another thing I hoard is boxes of certain types that are so useful for making extra storage when I need it, but again I do not want a load of old empty cracker boxes and small cereal packets on show.

With hubby’s help I put my pictures up again yesterday


and having found my heat guns they now have a home. The holder for my Grand Calibur plates, silhouette mats, etc is a cornflake box at the moment – it will be covered and made to look more presentable eventually.

And last but not least was my mini happy dance, when I completed the first section of “To Everything A Season”

Seasons First part done

Thank you so much for reading and I hope to see you again soon.


may your frogs stay in their ponds


About stitchingranny

I am one of those people who need to have busy hands so whether its stitching or papercrafting, I am always doing something. I also love being in the garden, though hubby does most of the work there these days.
