What a strange week this is turning out to be!
It's been very surreal & slightly scary watching the violence and looting happening across the country, especially with so many friends & family members close to the affected areas. It even kicked off here in Gloucester last night. Fingers crossed it all calms down very soon.
Anyway... back in the world of crafting, I've been spending a few days devoted to admin (accounts, filing, emails, organising photos, etc) and having a tidy up of my craft supplies.
I've finally found a use for this awesome tin I bought before Christmas - it's now home to my stash of paper patterns:
It's been making me smile every time I go to fetch a new pattern. Check out the design round the sides:
The tin is part of a range designed by Sanna Annukka for Marks & Spencer last Christmas. I ummed and aahed a bit about buying them but now I can't believe I hesitated for a second, they're so lovely.
The other tin I bought from the range is full of embroidery threads...
... and the custard cream tin I bought last autumn (which you can see in the photo below) is full of felty works in progress :)
