Cocoa Daisy - Brighter Skies


I've been happily creating with the lovely September Cocoa Daisy Kit - Brighter Skies. I feel this is one of those kits that I will want to last forever. The colours are very me right now and perfect for our family.

My first LO will go in my I.... album. Every page startes with I.
I have never been to Italy.
This is faux stitching and not hand stitching.

Nicky recently covered some MDF letters. It reminded me that I'd started the same project years ago. I'd done such a bad job, so I stripped back the H which was the only letter that had been started and covered them and finishd them in one evening.
I just covered the fronts, sanded the edges to get a lovely finished and then painted the edges in white.

I've had my first proper session at the gym today with a trainer. I think I'm going to struggle to get into a routine of going, but want to really try.
Other than that, not much to tell right now.
I did receive the most beautiful package this morning in the post. So much so, I had to take photos before tucking in.
It's a brandnew scrap store and as soon as it's live and ready to go, I will share more details.

That's it from me now. I will share my Cocoa Daisy project tomorrow.
