The Kitting Is Finished...April Fool

Hi was very tempting to play a little April Fool's Day joke on you all and tell you that the kitting marathon is finished but it ain't true and in my usual  "off on a tangent" took me on a trip down memory lane...back to my school days and the fun we had playing April Fool tricks on our innocent and naive we were...I doubt if the kids nowadays are so easily amused. The kitting may not be done but we're definitely heading in the right direction...more than halfway now that Project No 4 has been ticked off the list...

sneaky peek time...
Projects 5 and 6 are a repeat and the same...a double kitting job but hoop-de-doo the cubbyhole crew can see the wood for the trees now and are planning on having a little playtime...Tim's been busy creating the April tag for "12 Tags of 2014" and I'm sure by hook or by crook I'll be able to sneak in a little bit of mini blending tool stencilling.

And before I forget...we have a winner of Mrs McTartan's Give-Away
and this is no April Fool...
the name that came out of the hat is...
RITA (1)
my lovely buddy and fellow TH stalker admirer
e-mail me with your address Rita and I'll pop it in the post to you today

and make sure you tune into Ideal World tonight at 9pm and 11pm
Sky 644...Freeview 22...Virgin 747...Freesat 812 or you can watch live online...
for a fabulous Craftwork Cards Pick Of The Day
with lots of inspiration...more gorgeous kits and fabulous demos from my CWC buddy...
the lovely Julie Hickey

but I'll leave you with the result of all this frantic project "once was clean and pristine but now headed for a rub-a-dub-dub in the tub" crafty cloth...
and if you think this is mucky...tune in tomorrow to see what one very naughty "cloth ears" hooligan has been up to but before I hit the sack there's just time to let Mr Dyson loose on the die-cutting debris ready for another's day fun in the cubbyhole
Hugs Kath xxx


  1. Still in the middle of my huge crafty clear out (new shelves and desk waiting in the wings) and now at the stage where I wished I hadn't started it. If only I had a magic wand to wave it all finished. I would gladly lend it to you Kath - but sadly I don't seem to have one. Ah well, we'll just have to plod along until it's done.....X

  2. Congratulations Rita sure you will be pleased. Well Kath looks like your mammoth task is nearly there, enjoy you day.x

  3. So please that my lovely friend Rita has won! Congratulations Rita! Love the sneak peek, hope it won't be too long before you have it all done and dusted.... Hugs, Anne x

  4. well done to Rita - and love your sneaky peak Kath - fabulous! Big Hugs to you and keep on kitting xx

  5. Congrats to Rita... enjoy!! Love the sneak peek have been busy... Hugs May x x x

  6. Woo Hoo. So happy to have won this Kath. Especially to get the chance to read such an interesting story. Sorry I'm later in getting back to you as I had a Drs appointment this morning, so this fairly cheered me up. Glad your winning with the kits. Hugs Rita xxx

  7. You're getting there, Kath. Love the sneak peek.
    Your rag has competition, I have an old, well washed,(initially boil washed) muslin nappy, I've been using for a crafty rag a few years now after it finished it's primary duties keeping my then, baby son comfortable and fresh. There's not a bit of it left of the original white it used to be. It's a mix of archival black, multi Distress ink colours and various other inks and paint colours though I do wash it fairly often. It's a great, absorbent, soft, raggedy rag now but I have sentimental attachment to this, love it... am I weird?? btw; My baby boy is turning 29 this year. lol
    Congratulations on your win Rita.

  8. Hi Kath, well done to Rita. You have been busy, love the paint colours nice and bright.
