I'm busy making brooms at the moment... seems i have been saying brooms for ever!
Recently i've been feeling really tired and had no motivation. so having to push myself to actually make anything. I'm putting it down to the long days and sometimes nights i spent decorating over a week ago. I think its caught up with me thinking i was invincible and doing too much too quick. I'm also a night owl and i think being so doesn't help. I tend to stay up far too late and then have to get up early and so spend too much time tired and yawning.
Anyway, heres the brooms so far... lots to do still and colour to add.
They should look like the ones i made for KDF by tomorrow. Heres a pic of them.
Tomorrow i'll start making the ghostly white ones. The only trouble is i can't find anything suitable for the broom bristles. Kat the Hat suggested i use cocoa matting, or the material used for miniature thatching but i cant find any? I'm looking for white and various shades of natural/brown. I can't find either online, although not to worried about the natural/brown because i have a little left. But white is what i'm desperate to find and wondered if anyone has a suggestion or knows of somewhere i can buy some.
I know in the train section of Hobbycraft they stock natural in very small packs, yet have never seen white.
Hope i can find somewhere from your suggestions.
The World Cup
I know it's not in the spirit of the occassion but i can't wait for it to be over. It's not the actual game (althought i really cant stand football) but the noise from the horns and trumpets they blow. All i hear every day is a swarm of bees/wasps coming from the tv and its driving me up the wall. Is it just me or is the noise annoying you too. Am i the only one driven mad?
