A box for my ATC's

Hi Everyone,
I hope today finds you all well and it's not too chilly in your neck of the woods. Here it's a bit damp, necessity forces me to go out in an hour or so but it means I will be able to pop into my local sewing shop for some ribbon.

Laura on her Blog posted about the cute Hello Kitty tin she has to keep her ATC's in. Now mine up until yesterday were stored in an ice cream tub, now thats not exactly  attractive so I had been storing the odds and ends I use to make them in a little shoe box so I decided to jazz up the box a little and swap them round. I covered the lid with brown parcel paper, and as I find some fun embelishments I'll add them on too. I left the bottom of the box uncovered as it had a nice pattern on it without any branding. Here it is with all the ATC's I've recieved so far.

I made a little ATC to go on top stitched in one of the Anchor Varigations threads I love so much. I didn't join in with the January swap on bubble, but I've made one ready for February's swap but I'll post a pic of that when I've done the other one. Here's a close up of the ATC on top.

In other news, I've been busy with a few secret makes that I'll reveal in a month or so. I'm pleased with what I've made so far and they are a mix of cross stitch/blackwork, felt work, and sewing machine makes. It's been nice to have a variety of projects to work on. Last night I started the January's biscornu for the challenge, I'll have it finished later so look out for a new post with it on tomorrow. Might have to put one of my favourite buttons on it. Once that is done I'm going to finish my blackwork wall hanging, I'm very excited to be doing that as it's been on the to do list for ages.

Don't forget there is still time to enter my GIVEAWAY. There is a bit of a debate over how we should draw the winner - use the children or random.org. Hubby is also sulking as I won't let him enter, despite having already filled the entry criteria. I really ought to make him a biscornu I guess.

Thanks for reading. x

    Oh poor hard done by hubby! Make him a biscornu :-) I know my BF is always asking when I'm going to make him something and has been dropping hints that he wants a pirate bunny knitted so I guess I better do him a bunny! :-)
