After a morning full of the sort of domestic chores that leave me numb (not cold, just numb with the shock that I'm doing them again, so soon...oh why can't we have self cleaning homes?), I felt really galvanised to tackle some of my 'to do' list in terms of workshop preparation and crop stuff. This is a very pompous way of saying ( justifying, perhaps) that I spent the afternoon in my workroom. Mega large jumper, scarf (triangular thing, not a long outdoorsy one!) oil filled radiator and large cup of Assam required, almost the law. Got to be cheaper than having the heating on, even if a little eccentric looking!
Well, I kinda had the cleaning 'bit' between my teeth so I ended up making good on one of my non-resolutions! Hurrah! It took me a couple of hours but look:I sorted out my scrap box! And I didn't throw any of it away - just goes to show how untidy it was then, because I thought it was bursting at the seams. I have taken out the patterned paper scraps - they have their own box now, but it's small. I couldn't decide which was the predominant colour per pattern and you know what, that's the sort of thing that makes me obsess and waste time. So I didn't. Man I'm winning already! I've also made up the LO and instructions for the Lesson Session at this weekend's crop, and I've finally stopped procrastinating and finished this peg. My friends at the Crafthouse Press released a CD late last year featuring a huge number of images to print including boxes tags and templates, in a load of different designs. It's called Men's Travel & Sport. So now you know the subjects. It includes alphabets and vintage images as well as more modern, graphic style backgrounds. Great stuff. It will crop up on here quite a lot. Men are just so difficult! Anyhoo, the peg uses their paper and a Jolly Nation shrink plastic character. It's to be a gift for my BiL...just waiting for his club to upload their Fixture lists for this year so I can give him the peg already in use. That way he has doesn't have to do anything to make the present 'work' and it won't get slung into the dead gadget drawer or meet some other unused fate! Men are just so difficult!
