It was back to work today after a week off. A week in January with mild sunny days. Whenever I talk about my time off and holidays I always go on about the beautiful places we have been to etc etc. But there is one place we go to every time we have a break - the local recycling centre/rubbish dump. It really is every time without fail I am beginning to feel that it wouldn't be a holiday if we didn't go.
I was rather busy yesterday so I didn't get to do anymore on the decopatch cat, Apart from choosing the eyes - I found a pair of blue eyes and a cat nose which were the right size in my box of assorted eyes etc for teddy bears and other soft toys. I cut the backs off the eyes and the nose so they are ready to use.
This evening I made a couple more lavendar sachets - empty ones so there would be no issues with export. Because they need to be filled later I have put a fastener on the back and a button for decoration.
This is a link to a treasury I have made on Etsy. I love making treasuries mostly because I really like looking a beautiful things. It is very inspiring looking at the work other people are doing.
As a child I was often taken to the Westgate Museum (which is now open again) and to the gardens by the river Stour.
