Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

WOYWW.... Snacking whilst I work??

Nope Pizza Express haven't been delivering whilst I have been working, honest! My Son's school has requested that they wear something food related on Friday as they have been chosen to launch a Poetry Competition run by Bayer Science, with the topic of food, and we are being visited by Galton Blackiston - chef of Morston Hall, and ex-pupil of our school so he also fits into our 'Aspiring' people topic.... he is also rather gorgeous, so as a governor of the school I may have to pay a visit - obviously only in an official capacity to check the school is being run efficiently ......

Sorry I am waffling... so that is the reason we have made a 'Pizza' the first attempt last night was made in fabric, but the PVA has refused to dry?????? so Mum has made another one today with a load of Funky Foam, I have also at last found a use for Flowersoft aka Devils Dandruff.. it looks very effective as the brown cooked bit! It looks a bit strange ATM in the picture as it isn't dry so has a layer of still white PVA on it! but in true WOYWW its hos my desk is right now!

What else is on my desk?? Well the reason for the sewing machine being out is that I have made myself a Needle-case... now that's really grown up, I can also begin to call myself a seamstress! Its just a bit of a play with needle felting!
and one last thing.. who was a lucky mummy on Mothering Sunday? Not only was I presented with homemade truffles, gorgeous homemade cards and tissue paper peonies but also a pair of pinking shears!

Some of my friends just don't understand my excitement, but you lot will!


  1. Oh a really creative work surface this morning gal! Love the Pizza idea, and can only applaud your governor-ly instincts!! That needle case is gorgeous, blimey you felty types are clever. I totally get the scissors. Ambition fulfilled, eh!
