Confessions of a Craftaholic.

Following on from yesterdays post, and a bottle of wine, I’m ready to face it!

I figured if I confessed, I’d have to deal with some of these unfinished, unused items that play on my mind as well as fill up my studio…. So here goes, I’m laying it bare for you all to see, showing the stashed and squirreled away corners of my studio, here is a good selection of my shameful stash.
