The pictures, as usual, this week are taken in the late Tuesday sunshine, but there has been no crafting yet this week. I think my desk this week is even messier than last week. My excuse is that I am reorganising things, gathering the things I use most to a space closer to me, and moving others further away. I have this nagging feeling that this might cause me to ignore the things I have moved further away, but only time will tell. I have one or two punches, Martha Stewart and EK for example, which you might pick out in the mess. I am trying to find those a space within reach in the hope that they may enable me to use us some of my snippets when I get time to play.
Dufex isn't foil and it isn't holographics, it's something different - it's a special foil material with colour reflections.
The reflective and faceted surface of Dufex will really make any craft project come to life.
Hand engraved designs or patterns are embossed onto foil sheets to create the distinctive Dufex quality of depth and movement. This is achieved through the diffraction of light on the image surface.
This week has been a bit mixed, both emotionally and practically. It should have been our wedding anniversary last Friday and I chose to spend the day on my own with my thoughts and memories. My family were good enough to respect my choices and waited for me to contact them. I did start the reorganisation of my craft room as something very positive - positively messy!
Now that the roof is finished, I can take a breather before the next lot of jobs that need doing. Having said that, yesterday (Tuesday) had to be a clear out of the conservatory. The heavy rain storms of the last couple of weeks reminded me that there was a leak from the roof light in the conservatory. So I have now called the company in to sort it out, and they are coming to look at it on Thursday. It would be useful if they can get somewhere near it, so that put the conservatory a bit higher on the list of places to be sorted. Thanks to my army of helpers (daughter and two grandchildren) it is unrecognisable and much more inviting to sit in.
Thank you to all those who were kind enough to leave a comment last week. I was quite pleased to succeed in getting back to all of you, bar one, where I had a problem. I was asked to join another group, which made me very wary, so I backed out of that. So, if you were the person I missed leaving a comment for, I apologise and that is the reason. Hope to see as many of you as possible this week.
PS Having just told everyone that Dufex is no more, I had a wander round the internet and found that it seems that the company has been resurrected, and there seem to be a lot of new and discontinued designs available at
