I seem to be getting to do my WOYWW post later and later each week and the reason for today late visit to Julia over at The stamping ground is that I simply overslept this morning, putting me all behind.
I then had to go out and I had every intension of getting on here as soon as I got back from the local post office but just as I arrived home the delivery lady turned up with a parcel for me and then I got a little distracted with my latest acquisition .
As you can see, on my table this afternoon is a new storage box for my ProMarkers.
Although last year I sorted out my pens and made new storage by turning a CD rack on its side and love to see all the pretty colours looking down on me from the shelf where I have it, it really wasn’t working for me because every time I take a pen out to use, three or four more would fall out and it was getting on my nerves.
So I decided to think again and everywhere in blog land I kept coming across people shouting about the fab 100 CD storage boxes they were getting from Tesco for around £8. Apparently they hold the entire collection of Promarker pens, so I went to see if I could find one , only to be disappointed because they’ve discontinued them.
My next thought was eBay to see if I could find anything on there, which as you can see I did and what a bargain it was.
This is bigger than the Tesco one, holding 140CD’s so there’s room inside for my Marvy Le Plume pens as well.
Admittedly this one’s second hand but there’s no digs or scratches on the case at all and the only thing I can see wrong is that the keys are missing , which doesn’t matter at all.
The guy has even thrown in two new packs of the CD sleeves and all for the bargain price of just £8.99 with free postage. Result!
So now I shall be spending the rest of the afternoon sorting out my pens.
Craft wise I’ve not actually done very much since we last meet, but I have been doing some cross stitching in the evenings and have managed to do another fourteen panels to send out to Nicki in Switzerland for the Kids Company project, including these few.
I've also spent quite a lot of time on My Sewing Blog, adding lots of more projects to it and am almost up to the end of last year now, so it’s nearly up to date, although in saying that, there are quite a few posts that I’ve had to leave as drafts for the time being.
They are all related to the quilt project for St Clare Hospice and I can’t show them on my blog yet because there’s a possibility that the story about them will be featured in the cross stitch magazine, The World Of Cross Stitching.
So, that’s what’s going on in my craft room this week, now let’s see what’s happening in yours.
