It's TUSAL Day

This is the first one from our new house and I treated myself to a new jar as well.
I think these had been priced incorrectly as its about 10 inches tall and was only £4.99.
I'm still stitching these roses although this is the last one and I'm determined to get them finished before the next update. I can't decide on either red or purple for the cushion backing fabric.

If you want to join in with the TUSAL or even want to know more about it you need to go to DaffyCat's blog - HERE

Belated Birthday

I should have made him white rabbit really as I'm late again - seems to be the story of my life just at the mo!
I blame it on only having the house to myself once in the last 3 weeks - it's driving me barmy to say the least.
Can't be doing with this talking to people during the day LOL!

It's new release day at Teddy Bo today as well as Team B's challenge with a theme of make a card that includes a gift.

As I don't have a card to share I thought you might like to see a photo of my new spare room, something I haven't had since tall child was born...............

This is the view from the door - there is an alcove to the left with 2 tall drawer units in it - we were originally going to put our old wardrobe up in here but it's too tall for these new-fangled houses lol!

Thank you fairy

I really haven't got back into the swing of blogging since the move so please accept my apologies.
The only boxes we have left to unpack now are the books and DVD's for the dining room as Ikea are taking forever to deliver our new bookcase.

My card today uses a beautiful fairy image from Fairy Doodler together with lots of dies and First Edition Daydreamer papers.

I would like to enter this into the DT call at The Squirrel and the Fox - the icy colours say winter to me.
Dilly Beans - Purple
Emergency Crafter - anything with wings

Teddy Bo Tuesday

OK so Tuesday is nearly over but better late than never - you still have a few days to enter our Red, White, Blue and Bling challenge over at Teddy Bo.

As it's a team A challenge at the moment I was also supposed to use a new image but unfortunately I got in a bit of a muddle and used one from a previous release - I hope I don't get sacked.

Spotty paper: Papermania
Tag & Heart: Sizzix dies
Sentiment: Papermania

New Crafty Space

 You may remember that I was evicted from the dining room table and closeted into the spare room when we put our house up for sale.

If you were wondering where I was we finally moved last Monday getting our keys at a very stressful 4:27 when the estate agent who was holding them was closing at 4:30 - fortunately hubby was waiting outside for the phone call so we didn't have a 20 mile trip to do in 3 minutes.

Anyhoo this was my old craft room and by the gods of decorating smiling on me I seem to have ended up with bedroom 3 in our new house mainly as it had a teddy bear border in it and I argued it would be used more than the proper spare room as we didn't want any visitors LOL!

 Desk corner with room to walk right round it
Sorry about the photo but it's a bit bright here today.
In case you were wondering the mini bags on the desk are from Tesco £1 each to support Alzheimers.
 Stash corner
Purple drawers - punches, embossing folders, thin dies and colouring things
White drawers - card blanks, paper pads, Sizzix dies
Cupboard  (formerly Abby's wardrobe) stamps, ribbon, card, glitter, fabric etc
Stitching and singing corner 
Patterns patterns and more patterns, knitting sewing cross-stitching
These mostly used to live in the  conservatory and more recently have been packed away in various boxes round the house.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice there are only 3 corners in my room - no I don't live in a really weird shaped house. The last corner is a bit of a not sure where this goes at the moment so we'll pile it up here and a rather fetching black bag of stuffing and odd stuff.

I'm really really spoilt but hubby said he was really fed up with my "stuff" or some other word beginning with S being all round the house and hey I'm not complaining.
