I am still working on my Pretty Me project for January (doh) and my first Make Me project had overrun slightly so I need to select a relatively quick project from my long list to complete within the rest of the month and thereby catch up. Sooo...
Pretty Me ~ February
As you can see it's a little battered - the lid is split and the clasps are rusting but there is still function in this trunk. I asked the neighbour if I could rescue it and he looked at me as if I was mad!! I could see some use in it so thanked him profusely and the trunk came home with me.
I have a purpose for this in mind - to house board games in our lounge so they are easily accessible by all but not stacked on tables in full view all the time. I think a bit of paint and wall paper will soon pretty this old trunk up!
Make Me ~ February
I purchased Lucy's Coastal Colours pack from the Wool Warehouse online. These colours are all my favourite tones - I do really like the look of them all together and they are so reminiscent of the sea. My hands are a real problem at present and I have been long wanting to make some of Sandra's gorgeous mitts. They should be a quickish and purposeful make.
Obviously it's now early March so I hope to finish this quickly for a crafty win and to get me back on track for some of my larger projects! In the short term though these should be two very enjoyable and rewarding projects. I look forward to the creative process and sharing the results with you soon.
