August's UFO Support Group Meeting

I seem to be making a habit of posting late.  I had every intention of posting this after returning from dinner with friends yesterday afternoon.  I left home at half 3 to go to Lakeside while our friends went to see the Inbetweeners film (I am going Wednesday with some other friends) we met after for a lovely Mexican and ended up going back to theirs once we had finished eating.  We got home around 1am, I was a little very drunk, I hardly ever drink so it doesn't take much for me.  We spent the evening playing board games, it really was a great laugh. 

So I know the question resting on your lips, "Have I finished any crafting projects this month?"  I'm so pleased to be able to say yes, Yes I have.

First off, mentioned last month was a birdhouse.  I had originally bought this as a present for my mum for mother's day, I had wanted to have it painted ready to give to her, well it has only taken me what, 5 months tut tut tut, I am bad.  So here it is:

Secondly is this little project I saw in a book James bought me for Christmas.

I had bought the wire hangers and have loads of material laying around but had just not got round to doing it.  Well last week I change that and set to work.

I'm really pleased with the end result, however I am not too sure about the paisley fabric,  I think it is much better with a less fussy print.

I still have lots of un-finished projects and works in progress so to encourage me to finish them I have put them into a crate which I am going to leave on my bedroom floor.  Being a clean freak it isn't going to be long until this will drive me crazy and I will have no option but to get to work and get crafting, so wish me luck.

What have you been making recently? 

Hope you have all enjoyed your weekend.
