Here is my rearranged craft room, bit tidier, my desks and shelves were all freebies, my craft room was a kitchen when my Mum was with us, i decided to turn it into a craft room, also has a sink in it, the kitchen units have some of my Husbands bits and pieces in so no room in them at the moment, now for some crafting, thanks for looking.

Morning, heres a card i made for a challenge with the theme buttons and bows.  The rubber stamp is a Crafters Companion, Scruffy Little cat stamp her name is Niamh.  I stamped and coloured her with Promarkers,  mat and layered it onto card and paper from my scrap box then added a strip of ribbon across the bottom, tied 2 bows on my Bowmaker, 3 buttons and in the middle is a bow i made from more scrap paper.

I am having a big tidy up and move around in my craft room, maybe i will then find things, at the moment i can't see the floor haha and boy do i keep some recycling junk, my Husband is so used to it he is always coming in with bits and pieces he has found, he brought me a great storage cupboard from freegle and old school drawer unit they were throwing out, pics to follow as soon as i can it's taking me ages and i keep seeing things oooh thatswhere that went, didn't even know i had that, just stop and make something with that, well bye for now, brekie and off to tidy a bit more, be back soon.

Dawn Bibby had the pattern for this bag on her facebook page, so here is my version.  it was knitted on large needles 6.5mm with 2 strands of white cotton yarn and one strand of beige ribbon type yarn which had a cotton feel to it.  So thank you to Dawn for the pattern.

Anyone for tea and cakes, i knitted this tea set from an old womans weekly knitting pattern, i believe it is still available on their website.  It was great fun to knit and i hope to add to it before i sent it to my Daughter for her reception class, she is a teacher.
