... and creating new!
Today I was going through the bits box and wondering if it was time to sort it out. I hardly ever throw anything away. All the trimmings from the edges of pieces and the little snippets of left over fabric are tossed into a wonderfully inspirational jumble in one of my new cube draws. It is getting a little full but maybe it can wait a while longer... usually once a year and it gets a wee tidy from things I really wouldn't use (though it's poor odds that they will get chosen to go as they've all come from things I've already made, lol).
Whilst rumaging through I found a lovely little piece of left over which I just had to use in one of the new cards I've been making. This little flower was from some experiments I did from Carol and Lynda's great book "stitiching the textured surface" a while ago. I have a small collection of books for eye candy but rarely look through them after getting them. This book however is full of really useful stuff and I've referred to it often. As I've done loads of work today I'm going to treat myself to another play with their gesso stenciling methods, which I love as you can make up your own paste from household basics rather than having to get yet another "special product" to try.
So that's my time filled for the next couple of hours.
Hope you've been enjoying a creative day in some way too!
