It's true, they don't sell proper containers to hold tubes of vintage printing ink or an over abundance of wired chenille. So I make my own! Start with empty cardboard or tin snack containers, spray black with a coat of acrylic medium add paper of your choice and seal with another coat of medium. Voila!

I never met a grommet I didn't like.....
It's all in the details, the fun that is........
OK, I don't really need a pattern in order to make a peasant blouse, but who can resist Butterick patterns for a dollar....
Finito and ready to wear!
My favorite piece in the sewing section of my new creative wonderland, the boys old model car case filled with thread and presser feet!
I am glad my husband suggested painting the back wall red!

A trip up north with my daughter and grandson to visit family.... our lovely accommodations at Dad's guest cottage,
The babbling brook is beautiful to watch and soothing to listen to.
Ice cream for the tired hikers!
