It's raining ...

… so it's a play day today and a 'stay at home' after I'd been shopping. I saw these in Lidl and thought of Christmas - as you do! I'm busy crocheting travel tissue holders for our music group and these are going to be ideal as they have more interesting covers than normal ones.

I also bought a pair of scissors for the kitchen as the ones we have already are blunt. These will be for best.

I'd run out of lemons for my lemon drink so they went in the trolley too. I hate to throw anything away so as it was play (stay at home) day I had a pleasurable morning recycling. 

The tissues went into the crocheted tissue holders and the lemons' bag I made into a wool holder by threading 'that pesky ribbon' from my dress through the top. 

The plastic scissor holder is now a handy needle holder and the label made a present label with another 'pesky ribbon'. My wool shouldn't tie itself into a knot now.

A warm welcome to my new readers and commenters I hope you enjoy popping by.

  3. That's some hardcore recycling! :)

  4. Quite ingenious how you recycled everything. I really like the little tissue holders.

  5. I love play days! I like the wool holder-a great idea. Some of our craft stores already have Christmas items on display-I can't quite wrap my mind around that yet!


Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
