My oldest son recent left home so I moved all my crafting equipment into his old room - I can't believe I have so much 'stuff', or that I had it all in a wardrobe. When I finally have the room sorted I'll post some pictures.
While I was moving everything and put it away, I am ashamed to say I found a lot of projects I had bought several years ago and never gotten round to completing them. Well this is going to be the year of getting things done,and of using what is already in my stash so let me introduce to project number one for 2012.......
I don't have a before picture of my next project - but it was basic brown as the pig above was to start with.
This is the finished article - I still want to put some inserts in it but will use it for a while so I can decide what I need. I'm planning on using it as a sewing case.
I'm not sure what came over me when it came to choosing the colours - although they are in the patterned paper on the top. I just mixed paint I already had until I got the shade I wanted. I love the way it has come out. For me it has the old world charm I was looking for
