We have a workshop at the Cubby Hole tomorrow, entitled 'Matchbox Extravaganza'. On Monday I found out that we have to supply our own matchboxes. Not just any matchboxes, they need to be the 'bigger-than-normal-but-not-as-big-as-cook's-matches' ones, from Tesco. I wandered down to find the shelves empty, but was told a delivery was due. Next day I received a text from 'that woman' to let me know she'd just bought the last ones! I've spent the past few days wandering around supermarkets looking for suitable matchboxes, with no success.
Oh well, no worries, I'll do what any self-respecting crafter would do, and make my own. If you ever hear me suggest anything similar in future please feel free to slap me! After having to reprint the template because the printer resized it, then find that the inners don't fit the outers and much muttering I finally have a bag of suitably sized boxes for tomorrow. And I just know that when I get there somebody will say "you should have asked, I've got plenty of them spare".
In other news the beaded rope is finished and has been received by a very grateful friend. She was so impressed that I now have a commission for a necklace in the same style. All I need to do is find some beads in the correct shade of pink.
