Morning folks...
Wow how the weather has changed the last couple of days
it is so so cold here today..
so much so I have popped the fire on in the study to keep me warm while crafting
Tasmin is happy she has a fire to lay in front of
Well today is the day we snoop
although I have not snooped for what seems like ages..
but today I am having a crafty morning
so thought five mins to write this post while I have a cuppa
wont hurt
Here is what I am doing
on the left are envelopes.. lots of them
they each have a decoupage in 
which I have cut ready to glue together
as you can see I have a few put together
they will move onto the windowsill to dry over night
by the side of the screen is another project I am working on
it is for the CDAC challenge.
I am paper piecing as well as colouring
my markers are in the green bag just on the right.
So I had best get on..
I do have the usual things to do as well
and Tasmin will want another walk soon
take care out there
thanks for stopping by
CLaire xx

Your desk is looking extremely busy indeed with all that decoupage on it. I’ve not done any of that for ages, last Christmas in fact.

Thanks for dropping by this week and good luck with the candy draw…………whatever it turns out to be!

Happy Crafting!

Love what you are doing there. Do you colour a bunch of stamped images and then cut them up for the decoupage?
It is very intricate and very pretty.
You will be well on your way to having your Xmas cards finished.

Looks like you've been busy - and very organised too.

I don't like this colder weather - I've actually had to wear a jacket the last few days because it has been so chilly.

That's really detailed work! They will look lovely when finished, I think. And you must be very organised to be making Christmas cards at the moment. Thanks for your kind comments re my knitting. Honestly, it looks a lot harder than it really is! Happy WOYWW!

your decoupage is so cute! you are getting a head start on Christmas too, wish I was!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh, I do love me some decoupage. I have bunches of it stashed away somewhere. I really need to get it out and play with it before I lose my eyesight totally. That is not a hobby for the nearly blind. As far as the weather goes.... holy moly! SO COLD in the building and then you go outside and it is Arizona hot. Someone needs to tell these people we aren't hunks of dead meat that need to be kept frozen.
