Crocheted Granny Squares

I'm loving crocheted granny squares at the moment and experimenting with pen and a bit of old fashioned cutting and sticking.  Every home should have a little bit of granny squares. Check out the start of a series of prints and canvas's.....

Enjoy, Jennie

Paint Tin Stools

Here in Oz, when I bought decorating paint you got a free paint tin of M&M's.  How cool I thought....decorating should always be rewarded with chocolate!
So from empty paint tins to stools, here's some pictures and how to......
The finished project

You will need, empty tin, sticky back plastic, fabric and stuffing, scissors and wide tape.

Cut the sticky to size with some overlap for the join..about 2cm.  Be careful around the handles, cut down from the top and cut out the circle shape.  I did this as I went...you can add some back in if you cut too much....I had to.

place lid on chosen cutey fabric and cut at least 5cm extra 

Add stuffing and soft wadding (if fabric is very thin)

Tape the fabric to the underside of the lid and then press it down on the paint pot, you many need help as it's tight with the extra fabric
Great fun says Rosie

Scrap Hacker

I don't quite know how I came about this website but I'm loving it.  For inspiration and ideas for all, check out 

Here's a few of my favourite ideas

Amazing lace

Check it out yourself, you'll find something you'd never thought of doing. Maybe you'll start a new project with your new found inspiration.
I like the embroidered floor idea on a screen panel we are going to make for the outdoor room.  I'll keep you posted.

Mini Canvas Update

Well at long last the mini canvas prints are on Etsy.  I've made a start with the first four and more to come.  They look really good, almost like they are originals. Check them out and let me know what you think.
