Ok it's official, I am in skive mode.  Why?... because I have two buntings to paint and am feeling a bit lazy, I also want to make some fused plastic bunting – as taught by my talented friend Charlotte click to see her blog.  I also have a pup to walk, a bike to test and my hair to .... well I should do something with it even flatten with my palms would be an improvement so far.  I also  want to make a fruity flapjack ready for our outing on Friday.  Then there is the daily hovering, I took a photo but it was too disgusting to post – and I only missed ONE day of hoovering – where does all the dog hair come from – she is brushed and nothing then she runs back inside and voom it’s like black tumbleweed scooting around the downstairs floors, suffice to say she is not, and never will be, allowed upstairs.  Containment, that’s the answer.

All the above I have been putting off for several days now (except the hoovering), and what am I doing – writing a blog entry! I’ll be back at work soon and then I’ll be sorry.
On a nice note – here is a pic of my latests two creations , crafts I learned at Chorley Contemporary Crafters (blog) monthly meet ups.

Felt phone sock - it's all one moulded piece, then you cut an opening in top.  Oh and add buttons too.
Dragonfly mirror - not quite finished yet, though Mr Petal thinks it looks good with some wood showing so I may just grout it and stop there.
Since writing the above I got all motivated, chucked my hair up into a ponytail, stuck on my son’s old helmet,  plonked on my scruffy pumps with a sundress (it was a confident look!) and headed out of the door for a bike ride test.  Next straight back out with the dog and then back for a hoover – this morning? We are back at tumble weed status!!!!  Oh bunting almost finished (it’s a present so I can’t post a pic yet until its delivered).

Also K been busy and has added a new album to our facebook page with just a couple of pics of our beautiful buntings in their new homes. Go and check it out (don't think you need to be on facebook to see click here)
Right children to play with, a poorly pup to look after and another bunting to start.

  1. I love the Dragon flies on the mirror! :-)
    would never have thought of making pictures in mosaic. I love it as it is also but i have an unhealthy love of half finished things - like my silk painting - just didnt like the finished product at all.
    Am sure with love the end result whatever you decide to do with your mirror.
    Clever thing you.
