Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

WOYWW - 334

Well, it is still Wednesday - just!  I had good resolutions to post early today, but I overslept and then got involved in watching Hochanda with Barbara Gray demoing the Groovi system.  In between, you can see the other project I have on the go at the moment.  

Definitely not as clean as the parchment but it has to be done.  These are fabulous mdf lanterns produced by Roy at Candy Box Crafts, and are intended as presents for Christmas.  I am still in the process of applying black Gesso to all parts before decorating.  I cannot do it all in one go as I am getting very black.  I also need to do the whole of the inside before attaching the tops to the main sections.

The second shot does show that I have been painting today.  Once that is all done, then I need to work out how best to decorate it, all ready to take the battery candles.

It has been a long time since I blogged.  Wednesdays seem to vanish so fast this year and I cannot believe we are so close to that word beginning with C.  I have also had quite a large number of projects that had to be completed in a rush.

I hope to get round as many of you as possible this week.  Thank you to Julia for being our friendly hostess for so many weeks.
