Print AND pictures!

Just a few pictures. I now have batteries AND the camera cord!
A new top made some weeks ago.
Mid room swap. Chicky Babe's very clean room (Much of the stuff is still around the rest of the house almost 4 weeks later!!!!)

The clutter lead to a small flurry of sorting and cleaning starting here.
The linen cupboard sorted...
here's some of what came out of it and packed off to the good sammies.
Ever hopeful I have labeled the drawers in the kitchen in an effort to make it easier for others to put things back in the right place.
Do you remember the computer cords labeled, bagged and boxed.
Well this is what they look like again! ***Sigh***
This is under foot...
And this is beside me... Bantam Boy need not worry- there is no way I am confusing him as a house husband at the moment. He was concerned that I would as he is neither studding or working yet he believes he should not be expected to do anything extra at present...yes we have had some words! :-(

I have managed to ignore some of the mess to feed my need to do something a bit creative. I'm trying to get the kids at school interested in art from different times and places and to become familiar with some well known artists as a part of the arts in society section of the visual arts. So as I love the work of Frida Kahlo so I decided to put one of her works on a t-shirt using a computer iron on transfer then add some embroidery to it and then wear it to school.

I love the way it turned out! It's now my favourite shirt. I'll have to buy some more plain black shirts and do some more.

Wow, I love your new blouse, and the Frida Kahlo! I will have to figure out how you did that (get the print onto the iron-on transfer). You are wonderfully crafty!!!
I SO totally can relate to your continued attempts to tidy/organize/label things. Its an ongoing job, hey? Electrical cords are such a pest... xx Michaela
