My mam was having a clear out of some craft things she's had stored away for a few years and she asked if I wanted anything before she gave it away, quick as a flash I was in the box and out come a bag of miniature knitting
there was little hanks of wool and on the thinest of needles was some knitting
also in the bag were patterns for making miniature dolls clothes and a tea cosy which I might attempt to make with the help of a very large magnifying mirror!!
I covered a chocolate box with some nice gift wrap to keep it all safely in.
Then there was a book of decoupage with about 80 sheets of images inside and loads of ideas for making things
I'm sure I have a tray or two that could do with a makeover,
some of the birthday ones I made into gift tags and I'm sure when Alexa comes this afternoon she'll have loads of fun making things.
There were lots of photo albums and all mams paints, pencils and artists book that she used to do many moons ago and her "craft dress" that she wore while having fun and now it's mine!
It's a lovely blue sprig dress with a detatchable pinny that fastens on the shoulders and ties around the waist, made from a cotton fabric and I feel like....Hilda Ogden ....in it in the nicest possible way, haha, it just needs a bit of adjustment.
Right I'm off to the RSPCA shelter but more of that next time,
Brrrr I'll have to wrap up warmly it's freezing out there!!!
