A winter skirt

I've just finished making this corduroy A-line skirt. I've had the idea in my head for ages, so I'm so glad I finally made it. I'll be making a few more in smaller sizes. I seem to be in a bit of a slump lately, not knowing what I really want to be making to sell.'ll day!

Hope you're all having a super day!

I think my box of embroidery floss fell into the recycling box and now it's GONE! We have a cardboard box that we put all of our recycling into before throwing into the big bin, and I keep all my odds and ends neatly packed on the table next to the recycling box. I could scream....I'm going to scream.....wait for it.......AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Okay, I suppose it's not too bad. Nobody died, it's only embroidery floss. I'll just have to go to Spotlight tomorrow and buy some more. Makes me wonder what else I've lost thanks to the recycling box.
Hope you are all having a wonderful week. So happy the rain has stopped so we could start building our house. Yippeeee!
Cheers, Raewyn

Quick box corner fix-up

Don't you just hate it when a box's lid breaks in the corners? I HATE it! It can be a sentimental box or even just a puzzle or games box.
Well, here's my quick box corner fix up...

I love this box. A friend gave me a set of two and I just LOVE them! I keep lots of crafty odds and ends in here, but this lid has really been grating me lately.

So...I grabbed some glue, a small piece of twill tape (you can use anything really) and a button..
....And box lid corner is fixed. I love it!


The button goes nicely on this box but you could add a little fabric flower or whatever will go with your box.
Cheers, hope you all have a super week!
