Snippets

We've had very little snow compared with most of England which accounts for the lack of snowy pics on here today!

I stayed in yesterday and did a bit of 'altering'.
I loaded this altered clipboard with 25 patchwork pieces..all Ikea Rosali ;-)
And I have put a 'free' Rosali Paisley FQ with it too.

I used a lovely pink/red paisley fabric for the padded front
Added some little extras..


Not that you see the back of it once it is hung...but I've put on pockets and loaded those with papers.

It's for sale in my shop.
SOLD THANK YOU

On a different note...
Poundland!!
One of the successes of the recession..so far anyway,it seems.
Not a shop I visit often..however..embroidery threads...!!
Well I couldn't resist them, could I?
I won't use them for a while but hey, they add colour to the room!
Take care on that snow, everyone ;-)

What a great clipboard Sal! I love the fabrics. If only it weren't so icy here today, I'd be hotfooting it down the hill in search of poundland ...

Love the clipboard, I really want one but don't think I'll get my sewing room now :( It looks like I'll be moving very soon so I've been told not to buy anything... only more things to pack :( :(
Hate moving x

I can't see that clipboard hanging around for very long. Too pretty and far too tempting.

A woman after my own heart - buying threads because they are lovely colours and will be good to look at even if you never use them.
