Today's makes

I have been trying to sort out my craft room so when I found some tins in the cupboard while looking for jars for my marmalade I decided to cover them in pretty paper and recycle them as storage pots.  Well I suppose every little helps!

 And I also made a toilet roll holder for the bathroom, making a pattern from one I bought in Rhodes that is in the downstairs loo.  The fabric was left over from a duvet cover I made when I started university so that must be 30 years ago!  See, everything comes in useful eventually!

I made this for my Father-in-Law's birthday next week. He is a tram fanatic and lives near Blackpool so I found a photo of a Blackpool tram, printed it several times and decoupaged it. 

And this is a card I made last week, for a friend but couldn't post it until he had opened it! He likes music, books and wine and I managed to find some images that combined them all.
