It is finished.... sort of!

I have been working on a crochet baby blanket for over 3 years now (although clearly not very consistently). It's the first thing I've ever crocheted so I'm well pleased with it. I was meant to give it to my sister in law for my nephew when he was born. Now he's 3+ I doubt he'll have much need of it and I have a slight problem....I've run out of wool to complete it and don't live in the same town as the wool shop I bought it in :(
Here's the nearly finished result...

At some point I'll undo the blue and finish off the edges with white cos you can get that anywhere but for now I'm calling it finished. Still pleased with it tho :)

Me and a friend have been on a road trip today to hobbycraft. It was only polite that I pick up a few bargains in the sale ;)

Washi tape storage

Since my washi tape collection seems to be growing I've been wondering how to store it. I found this blog - 27 ways to store washi tape. I quite like the expressi capsule holder, it looks fun! In reality tho' I need something that doesn't take up much space. How do you store your washi tape?

A little bit of Washi Tape Heaven

They've got washi tape in the Range! First time I've seen them sold individually!

So of course I couldn't resist getting some.. the hubby was with me so I was good! Although I'd have got more as it was 2 for £2! Bargainous!

Then I got these for scrapbooking..... 

 The next day I went back and got some more washi cos it was so cheap! 

My washi tape collection is growing!

Had my folks and my aunty staying over Easter and we popped to the range for a coffee and a browse. Luckily my dad is just as crafty/arty as my mum so didn't mind this at all but followed by saying he could always read a magazine in the cafe while we shop - what a star!

Mum educated me and my aunty on clear stamps, blocks and inks. I also learnt what a cuttlebug machine does! 

I bought my first stamp, block and ink.... thinking of my filojournal. 

Here they are...... :)
