I love the look of the lurex packaging, it certainly looks of a certain era. I haven't managed to use it successfully yet but I'm delighted to have the eyelet punch, I've been thinking of buying one for a while. The yellow strips make a template for cutting patchwork pieces.
I thought I would tempt you with a glimpse of what I've been making this week. I can't show too much as it will spoil the surprise for Susan. It's on its way to america so I'll reveal all when it's been received.
You may remember that I belong to MixedMediaATCs_UK a Yahoo group and every month we have a lottery. I showed my card the other day and I found out yesterday that I am the lucky winner by a random draw this month so I will be getting everybody else's cards! Yay! The first one arrived today -how quick was that?!
Sue had sent me a beautiful stitched handmade paper envelope with her card. The gold and black are sprayed on. I think it's called cobweb spray.
The little fish are really sweet and I think the seaweed is real seaweed probably dyed.
I shouldn't really let Chelsea week pass by without heading up a link to the BBC website. Chelsea Flower Show is one of the great gardening events in the UK and I for one try not to miss any of the TV coverage. I've been a couple of times many years ago with my Mum but it's very expensive to get in and the crowds are heaving so I prefer to enjoy it via the telly.~
It's coming up to a Bank Holiday weekend in the UK and, dare I say it, we are off on a little jaunt again! Well, it is DH's 60th this year so we're going a bit mad. Whatever you're doing this weekend have a lovely time and I hope the weather is kind to you. See you next week.
