The best plans

Today we have confirmation of our move date,
16th October, so we are busy packing.

My mini house pack did not go well last Thursday.
I chose that evening because Kev was away and I could spend time doing the packing, I have saved some large tin's for all my accessories to go in.
I was very good and straight after my dinner, I went into my craft room, got the first tin down placed it in front of my house, took the lid off and there to my horror inside was the biggest spider I have ever seen. The lid was placed back on the tin, but I could not bring myself to pick up the tin. Fliss's hubby removed the spider in the tin to the garden on Friday evening, but no packing has been done.
I now keep an eye on our back door waiting for this big spider to come back in. Here in the UK there are people who say if you keep conkers in a room the spiders will not enter, so we have collected conkers to place in each corner of every room. Will keep you posted if it works.
And boy are the spiders big this year.

What a mess

We are busy here, just starting to pack boxes, my craft room is the first place I am tackling.
As yet we still do not have a moving date, but we have just signed loads of papers, so this week we should have a firm date.

I am packing my projects and house this Thursday, I am not looking forward to doing it, it's such a large job, once packed we will put it all into storage, so on moving day it will be safe.

Wish me luck.

The perfect workroom

This was my first miniature project,
I often forget this one, it's located in our sitting room,
everything else is on display in my craft room.

The display box was purchased from Doll's House Emporium, at the time it looked a perfect size. This is the only project at today's time. I wanted to create a perfect spot for my mini me. Most of the furniture was purchased from DHE at the same time as the box. On the coffee table is my mini sewing, I have also on the table a pair of working scissors and a thimble, my mum always wore a thimble when sewing.

As with my craft room, I have loads of things here which I love, I have put something from each of the craft's I enjoy. I have also added extras from my real life. I will always have a sewing machine, books of all types, pot plants including cati.

The two teapots on the shelves, were a present, they are made by Sally Meakins, who's work I love and the reflect my love of cat's, at the time they were given to me I had a black and white cat, Tom and a ginger cat, Tim. Tim is no longer with us, but he lives on in my mini worlds.

I love lavender, it grows in my real garden, I would also love to have space to be able to leave sewing project's which are unfinished, ready for me to carry on, I always have to pack everything away.
The mini pictures above are of my real family, Kev and I are there, as is myself and my mum, Fliss and Steve on their wedding day, and Su is featured in a couple of shots.

This little silver handbag, is a silver charm, I brought it for Su on a weekend break together we had in London, It was her 21st and just the two of us have a couple of days away. It was purchased in Covent Gardens, we had a long browse in the market area, Su loved this little bag, after we had a great lunch. Su later passed this bag to me for safe keeping, it is the correct size.
