I decided last night instead of browsing pretty pictures on Pinterest I thought I would actually make something.
Does anyone else ever think that is a good idea?
First up an old canvas which was past its used by date. I cut a square of alphabet fabric and staple gunned it on. Man!! Why haven't I used a staple gun before. A world of possibilities is opening up in front of me. I think I've discovered why its kept in the shed. Lots of eye rolling from husband as I'm getting excited about how easy it is to use. He'll get over it.
Here's my finished piece. It won't hang over the fire place but there was a hook there and it was the lightest spot in the house for a photo.
The second thing on my
"Things I've Found on Pinterest and Must Make One Day"
list was some fabric stretched over embroidery hoops to hang in Miss Muff's bedroom. Four of these took no time at all.
I'm using the picture below as my inspiration so I definitely a few more to make a nice arrangement.
Lastly, I'm not a fan of food photos on my blog but last week I made this jelly slice for an afternoon tea.
It looked and tasted amazing. Recipe from my friend Jan, I think the trick is a mixture of strawberry and raspberry jelly on top. Yum!
