I got a bit excited

A RARE SIGHT
this basket is usually full to over flowing
I got all excited yesterday when I got to the bottom of the basket
it was a real good feeling sadly it only lasted a couple of hours
the washing basket was over flowing again
so after the washing was done and all dry
you guessed it
I've got a full basket again
oh well it was nice to see an empty basket for a little while


I was working on a LO yesterday
it just didn't look finished
had an idea a few buttons might do it
they looked OK but not quite right
brain wave put them on little squares
I had created 3 little inchie's
they finished the LO off perfectly



I had so much fun creating these I did a few more
it's loads of fun
and a great way to use up all those tiny bits of patterned paper and card stock
that you just couldn't put in the bin
you never know
you might need just a little bit of that one day

Will share them and the LO's that I did yesterday later
that's it for me this morning got to go
it's going to be 40 here today
so need to get the house work done before it gets too hot

luv

YAY for you Lexie...Wish my basket looked that empty! Hope it is not to hot for you there today!!! Might have to crank up the AC today.
We are having some lovely rain here due to the ex tropical cyclone Charlotte.
Those LO's look so devine...but are a nice accent. Can't wait to see the completed LO. Have a great day Luv Shaz xoxo

All this swearing Im shocked! hehehe
Iron is a filthy 4 letter word in my house, and I still havent worked out why that surboard looking thing in my laundry has a metal stand attached to it. Nahhh, I do iron if I have to, but I hate it with a passion, so yes celebrate darlin, its empty! *L* I love the button idea too. Ive got a container with those "cant throw out" little bits too LOL xxxxx
