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.

  1. Wow, what a wonderful handywoman you are. And a Lancashire Lass I note. You have made a lovely job of the sewing box and the videoing is great too. Thanks.

  2. I am going to have to have a look what I've done with my old sewing box! I had it when I went to college ( more years ago than I'm willing to admit to Lol!) but I can't think what I've done with it and your revamping is brilliant. Have a great crafty week and a happy woyww, Angela x16x

  6. Awesome job on the sewing box...A few years ago I found one and redid it. I use it to hold my Tim Holtz finds! You said you made the glue? How? I spend a ton of money on glue!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. Vickie #26

    1. Hi, thank you,
      It's a glue like wall paper paste, but watered down a little.
      I like the idea of keeping your treasures in it.
