Fanciful things



Over Easter we had a lot of rain and it was foggy. Very much the weather suited for Autumn. While in doors I pottered around sorting through stuff. I organized my clear stamps into a folder using pages from a photo album that has those sticky pages. This album I got from the thrift store for a dollar or so. The album is the ring binder type that allowed the pages to come out. The album is a new version of the older style photo albums so I feel confident that it is acid free which won't yellow my stamps. This is a good storage idea for keeping all my stamps in one place. If you follow Tim Holtz you'll know his stamp binder folder, this is the same principle but far cheaper.

I used the weekend to catch up on some UFO projects I have in my sewing basket. One of which was finishing the Peter Rabbit tinted crayon embroidery. I have that on a tea towel and plan to make a little kitchen set of it with a bobble stitch dishcloth as well as a potholder...maybe with radishes. I'll show that soon.

The sun is out today, it will be nice to have a wander around outside.

Over the weekend I gave into the desire to return to painting. I have a new blog simply for my art work: Shiralee ann studios. 


I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.

  1. Shiralee, we got about 27mm here so that was nice for a change. It is warming up already after that cool breeze yesterday which made me think that winter is just around the corner. Glad you got stuck into your UFOs!

    1. Nanna Chel,
      the weekend did feel like it was getting ready for winter. I liked the rain we did have.
      The basket of UFOs still have a few items in it that need to be done. Soon.

    1. Sherri,
      I do like to paint. The talent is handed down from my dad's side. His grandfather and great grand father drew little sketches, of which we have. Dad also did a bit of painting then gave it up. They never did anything much beyond that. A bit like me to be honest.
