crafting on

 
On Sunday I had a crafty couple of hours. I decided I wanted a permanent place to write my menu's for the week, rather than the scraps of paper I have been using. I used things I already have already. An unused picture frame, a photograph from our most recent holiday and a whiteboard pen. I LOVE it!
 
I then spent some time crafting with Stephanie. Here she is making a tea light holder, she used an old jar and some tissue paper from the stash.

 
 
Then we pressed some flowers which she had picked on Saturdays bike ride. We will do something with them once they are finished. See those heavy old, expensive uni books. They did come in handy for something! Now I really need to get them on Amazon!

 
Dylan has been working on a metal work tealight holder he is making as part of his GCSE project. I might be allowed to give you a glimpse once he has finished and handed it in. He is taking such a lot of care and it really shows. I can't wait to see the finished product it looks fab half made!
 
I do love a crafty Sunday. Now I must go and organise tomorrow's lunches and dinners then I can sit and knit. The baby blanket is progressing slowly. I might give you a peek tomorrow.
