Finished cross stitch

Anyone who follows me may have seen a previous post where I planned this family portrait out. It took me a good few weeks to getting round to doing it, but I managed to complete it the other day, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  Now just to find the perfect place for it .....

Barry Amor the love monster

Meet Barry, Barry Amor, he is a cheeky little love monster complete with a bow and arrow. Though he likes to pair up very odd couples every now and again for his own amusement.

 It is my February paper toy, so obviously had to be Valentine's related, so if you fancy making one head to my website to download the template for FREE

atomic cabinet!

Me and Joe made a bit of an impulse buy the other week. We have decided that we want to start replacing the IKEA and gifted furniture that we have to get some more unique pieces. We still enjoy a good trip to the yellow and blue warehouse, but our living room was beginning to look like a picture from one of their catalogues. We began scouring ebay and other websites selling second hand furniture and when we saw the picture of this 50's kitchen cabinet we both loved it instantly, and put an offer in before we'd even bothered to see if it would fit where we'd intended it for, incidentally it didn't! So after rearranging the hall living room and my studio it found a home!

It's currently adorned with some vintage cameras, threads, a 1970's Mickey Mouse alarm clock and some thunderbirds toys.
