How often are you inspired by reading someone else's blog?
If you are anything like me, then it's frequently!
By this, I don't mean 'copying' their work!
(And that's a big one for debate..for another time... maybe! ;-)
Anyway, I was very inspired, the other day, by a tutorial on this lovely blog:
And so it's back to being a 5 year old today!
Didn't you just love to draw houses, when you were very young?
Using vintage fabrics, I've been making my houses on an old embroidered tablecloth and hopefully have placed them so that the back of the covered notebook will also have a lovely, embroidered design.
I think this will take me all week!
For my 20 minutes crafting yesterday, I put the finishing touches to my clipboards.
I'm rather enjoying this house business ...but right now, I'm about to put my feet up, for an hour.
This morning , having popped to see my mum, she passed this to me...!
I've never read 'The Lady' until that interview with 'You Know Who'!!
Ever since , my mum has bought the magazine and passed it on to me.
And I have to say that it is a great read!
Lo and behold, I opened up this particular issue (Feb 16th) to find an interview... and way hay... there's my good friend Margaret Powling, who often comments on my blog!!
