Creative Thursday

My mum came to visit the other day and brought me a lovely big stash of threads and needles that my grandma used to own. Don't they all look pretty together! Now I actually need to do some sewing at some stage to use my massive thread collection, but not until I have finished my current projects. I always start too many things at one time and take forever to finish them.

Speaking of current projects, I have decided to cut out the rest of my cupcake lino prints to make them into gift tags. I still need to hole punch them all - but would you believe I don't have a hole punch?! What kind of stationery lover am I?

Another ongoing project is my cross stitched chicken and it is getting there slowly. I hope to have it finished by next week and I must say I am looking forward to having it over and done with.

Would love to see your cross stitch when you are done!! I'm hoping to be able to get back into it one day soon.

I'm having a bit of a creative Thursday myself. I went to the craft store just to browse and I ended up spending a bit of money on some things that will hopefully bring some quirky charm to my very empty apartment. I'll blog it if it works out. :)

Oh thread!! Love some colorful thread! Your idea for the tags is perfect!!!! Now I really must do Lino :)

I can't wait to see that chicken all finished! That is so much work!

That is a great picture of the thread, and turning the lino into gift tags sounds like a wonderful idea. Looking forward to seeing the completed cross stitch.

The thread does look pretty!

You did such an amazing job with the cupcake prints.

I laughed when you wrote about not having a hole punch, just sounded really funny. You can get really cool like picture punches these days, I'm sure you've seen them.

Ohh the chicken! I hate it when projects drag on a little too long, takes the fun out of it a little bit hey?

They are going to look awesome side by side :)
