clean and simple twine...

I haven't done much crafting this week as I've been a bit ill and also because my craft room currently looks like this while we TRY to organise it:

This is new kitchen cabinet awaiting a worksurface, occupying a tiny corner in my very cramped, and multi-purpose craft room come back bedroom (we took a sofa bed out of this corner believe it or not as it mostly just served as somewhere to put the ironing and my need for somewhere for my growing stamp collection trumped the ironing which can now go in the attic to be forgotton!) I'll show you afters, when its finished, but it might be a long wait.............

I did see something in craft stamper this month though that gave me an idea to play in the sketch challenge at  I cut some circles from my smallest nestie and covered them in d/s tape and coiled garden twine from the centre out (they used bakers twine in craft stamper but I thought this would be more textural).  I put a new craft-candy dot in the centre of each, and mounted on a woodgrain background (waltzing mouse way out west set again) with a green mount to match the craft candy dots.  The sentiment is from There She Goes.

 I took my colour inspiration from this weeks create for fun


  1. is that a long wait for the ironing or the worksurface lol.

    I'm almost at that stage too, just knocked a doorway through from dinning room to steading & started to rip out the old plaster in the steading, hopefully will be moving into my huge new studio by the end of August, september to unpack and organise everything again and then.. SECC hobbycrafs show in October and get to work on the new conundrum of by heck i have too much free storage here.
