Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all been enjoying Wednesday hump day. We’re halfway through the work week now. And we’ve made it through the first week in April!!!

Nowadays, one day is much like the next. However, looking out the window at the glorious sunshine, I realise how grateful I am to be in reasonable health at the moment. I appreciate that while we’re in lockdown mode, I have company. My Sarah does her own thing during the day, and we catch up in the evening. It seems we’re settling into our new normal, finally. Our creative juices are flowing again and we’re both experimenting with supplies we never tried before.

So, I’m now on Day 8 of my Messing Around Challenge. For today’s challenge, I played with one of the Brusho pieces I produced yesterday. Both pieces I produced dried overnight. I sat and studied the two pieces and decided to start with the greenish one. I ended up cutting the piece into smaller bits. So, in the end I prepped a few pages ready for gussying up over the next few days. I have no set plan of action for embellishing just yet. I’m hoping something comes to mind. This is what I have set up so far ……

And this is what the page looked like before I cut it up this afternoon …..

Day 7 Sprinkle Spritzed

Doesn’t it look different. Yesterday it looked like a splodged mess. Now that I have cut it up and stuck it down it looks totally different. I am quite pleased with the result so far. I hope to embellish it so that the pages look even better. Watch this space.

So, all in all it’s been a pretty good day at happy stitching manor. The days seem to be speeding up now. The new normal is more normal now.

Well, I guess that’s my report for today. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy. Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching and messing around with art supplies.

    1. Hi Joanna, when I stood back after sticking my Brusho tiles down I could see the quarter inch seam allowance sneaking in!!! Well it’s a starting place isn’t it. I was so surprised how my brusho page looked once it was cut out and again once I decided on a layout. Beauty is all in the eye of the beholder. Thanks for popping in today x


  1. Hi Lucie, I’ve just been doing some catchup with your blog, as my laptop has been playing silly & won’t bring up the internet for me. Glad to hear you & Sarah are settling with a routine which I don’t seem to be able to do at the moment. I’m loving all your arty endeavours over the last few posts. I’ve never heard of Brusho, but it certainly looks interesting. Thanks for being there for us all with your positive attitude & “messing” around posts. Take care, stay safe & huggles.
