When I mess about trying to decide where to put the tinest and most insignificant of flat back gems I call it Fiddle Farting, hence the name of the blog!!!
After a great deal of thought I have decided that for the forseeable future there will only be one post a week on a Monday.

After a great deal of thought and taking in all the changes in my life over the past eighteen months or so, I have decided that for the the time being, at least, I will only be posting once a week on a Monday from now on.......
OLD TEMPLATES AND FILES
I am sorry I cannot send out any templates, poems etc. that I may have previously offered in the past, the files have been lost and I have chosen not to redo them

Tesco Advent House Update 5
I hope that the next time I show you what I have done to my Advent House it will be finished and that all I’ll have to think about is where to put it during Advent and what to put in it.
You know my motto is "Less is More" ...... well, that's gone right out of the window ...... but I am only going to give you a sneak peak .....
The roof is now longer flat and lacking ……it's embellished with hundreds of flat backed gems!!!!! I just need to add a bit of PVA to the ends of the braid to stop it from fraying.
And I found the perfect snowmen in Hobbycrafts (£1.99 for 6)
I’ve also found the right glittery numbers too, but they caused me more work than I first intended.
Initially I stuck them straight on to the drawers, but from a distance they were barely distinguishable. So I made a small background panel for each number, aghhhh, more fiddle fart! Sorry, about the wet glue, I am just too eager to get the photos taken.
I love my drawer knobs, but I have found that I cannot add any more small gems, as I had planned, to the drawer front as it doesn’t look right. I’ve used gold stars which mirror the stars held by the snowmen.
So almost there, except that I have decided I need to put something on the sides of the house now….. so more Blitzen paper, snow and snowmen …… then I’m done …. I think!
