Punch Drunk.

Not much mini-ing has gone on over the past couple of weeks as I decided to have a "set to" in my workshop. Whether or not that was a good idea I've yet to make my mind up. I have so much stash, it's obscene! I've enough ribbon to start a shop and what on earth possessed me to keep the tiny scraps of material that were left over after doing a project I'll never know.   I found stuff  I'd forgotten I'd bought and stuff I don't even remember buying. I've come to the conclusion I need to be more ruthless, I mean what can you do with a 1" piece of skirting board, please don't send answers on a postcard otherwise I'll end up rescuing them from the dustbin.

A bit of mini work went on at the weekend as Steve went up to The Lakes for the shoot so I was left to my own devises. The punch needle is still in favour as projects are so quick to do, so I decided on a rug for the nursery

This was what I decided on.

And in place in the attic.

I've decided I need to start work on my dh again so today I am going to make a dressing gown for the bathroom and tonight after work I am going to make some more toys for the nusery.

See you later....


  1. A 1" piece of skirting? Well, you never know when you just might need a 1/2" piece to finish off a project!

  2. Oh Darn it Irene! I will not go through the dustbin, I will not go through the dustbin, I will not go through the dustbin......

  3. Well,I use those pieces of skirting as wall shelves, they make very nice shelves :-)
    Lovely little rug!

  4. Hahaha, i will not talk about the skirting. Your rug is very nice.
    Have a nice weekend
