Less is More - Use your scraps

As I've got plenty just like most of us crafters this was an easy one to do once I'd decided which of the many scraps I wanted to use.
I've used some scraps of paper with a tape measure theme for the strip across the middle. Using some Nit Wit stamps that came free with the Simply Homemade magazine this month I stamped the cotton reel out in two colours. Finally I used a sentiment which also came with the same set.
A very productive day yesterday - had a good tidy up and sort out of the craft area, always feels so much better when everything is back to being neat and organised. I also managed to sit and do some cross stitch and with any luck I will do some more this afternoon - I am now going to set myself the deadline of next Friday to get it completed. I even managed to get a banana cake made in the evening.
I also made a start on a pair of baby socks - the wool and pattern came free with a knitting magazine and I thought it was about time I started using some of these freebies. I managed to get one sock knitted although not stitched up before I decided it really was time to go to bed. With any luck I will get the other one done today and be able to post the end result up some time over the weekend.
We're meeting up with my BIL this evening for something to eat and a few drinks which will be a nice start to the weekend. Hope everyone else's start to the weekend goes as well.
