I’ve just found I am not as tall as I thought I was …

I have so much on my “to do” list at the moment and that includes painting my bedroom.   The bedrooms at Granny Crafting Cottage go right up into the roof with a beam across the middle of the ceiling so the walls are very high.  Every time I go in at the moment I am reduced to chuckles as you can see that, even with the pads on a long extension, I can’t reach the top of the walls.  I shall have to talk very nicely to my daughter when I have finished all of it to come round and just finish the bits at the top!
One reason I am so busy is because I received a commission for two of my Christmas stockings!  I have also sold the little apron I did so I am thrilled that some of what I do has been so well received.  I’m not sure if you can tell from the photos but the stockings are almost 20” long so lots of knitting. 

In between the painting and knitting I have enjoyed making another card for a forum friend and it’s the first I have done since I got my Cricut and both the flowers and the sentiment were made with the cartridge that came with it.

Otherwise the paper (I sadly can’t remember where it came from) was so lovely I didn’t want to spoil it by matting over it, so I have kept it very simple. 
Part of the reason for painting the bedroom is to allow me to use the bedroom I was in as a craft room.  So I am very excited about that.

  1. Lovely card - and you were right not to cover that gorgeous paper.

    I'm very jealous of your craft room!!!!
