What's on my Work Desk Wednesday - I love a big of gluing and sticking

It's been a busy week here at Arnold's Attic.
I had a brilliant road trip to Luton with my chum, checking out the textiles shops in Bury Park and discovered some amazing hat-haberdashery suppliers near Wardown Park.  
Over the weekend, I couldn't resist taking advantage of the the beautiful sunny weather - it's perfect for drying out some of my gluing and sticking projects. 
I made up a batch of glue, collected together some scrummy papers and got to work! 


 
Glueing and sticking makes me so happy!




Finally I replace the screws and washers.
 
I'm so thrilled with the final result.

Tatty Devine finds a new home

I've finally found a home for my lovely Tatty Devine treasures!
Earlier this year I spotted this clever little display box in IKE, bought it and had a think about giving it a little makeover.
I rummaged in my stash and out came the vintage blankets.
Ironed the back of the blanket.

I cut a piece of cardboard to fit the back of the box and sprayed it with glue.
 
Stuck it to the back of the ironed blanket and pressed firmly.
 
Trimmed the blanket and tried it for size in the box frame.
When I was happy with the fit, I spray glued the back of the cardboard and put it into place in the box. 
The best bit was unboxing my treasures and putting them in their new home.   

This beauty has pride of place in my bedroom.
Now I get to see these treasures everyday. Happy, happy me!
This is me signing off for this What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.
