finished projects...time to start a new list !

I've had a fun week, finishing off projects, making and receiving gifts and goodies and managing to cross EVERYTHING off my to-do list !! Of course, I will be writing a new to-do list as soon as this post is posted !

Here starts the show and tell:

This is the picture collage I have used for my up-coming advert in Crafts Beautiful Magazine !!

My friend Sarah was offered an advert but it was too large so we have split it in two and both are running our first adverts!! It's very exciting!!

Next up is a softie I made, he started in my felt picture and now he is 3d and 20cm tall. I have named him Peter.

He is sitting on my new bargain eBay purchase, 1m of vintage pink paisley cotton for 99p ... yippee bargains are great!

Sarah, who I am sharing the advert with, has recently been to America and look what she bought back for me ! I got the parcel at work and it's safe to say that they all know I am mad already, but I was skipping round showing everyone my new ribbon and giant buttons and the looks they gave me! hilarious!

Remember this pile? Ready to become boxes to tidy my sewing area?

This is the sewing box (and I actually tidied it a bit before I took this photo!)

I couldn't shut the lid and every time we drew the curtains the lid would fall down and squash everything. I don't like squashed stuff. The simple answer? tidy up! My answer? spend all week making boxes to tidy it up properly :-)

Nice and empty ( i couldn't bring myself to take a photo of the floor behind me where I dumped it all)

AND tra la la SUPER tidy :-)

A box for everything, and space in some of them to add more stuff!!

I won't bore you with photos of all the boxes but that yellow one is my favourite one.

And this is one I made for my friend last night:
Today I am making cupcakes for a big shop update out of some new GORGEOUS felt I bought this week, watch out for that!!
Have a lovely Sunday :-)

Wow you have been very busy!
I seriously need to have a tidy of my workspace too - in fact after I have washed off my hair dye (multi-tasking as we do) I may well just do it.
Plenty of inspiration to be found here - even if it's just to tidy up, Thanks :-)

hi sisterini, i think your boxes are great, I love the fabrics. What interfacing stuff do you use to get them so rigid????????
