I still have a headache

Hi all,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Saturday was lovely and sunny, so we went to a local National Trust property as we are members. There's a great play area there. I was on the adventure playground bit with Daisy, but wasn't paying attention and hit my head on a wooden roof that was over the slide. Ouch! It still hurts now. On Sunday, Daisy and I went to our musical rehearsal. We've got the first parent's evening today at Daisy's school, so I'll be interested to know how she is doing, especially as she tells me nothing about her days.
Over at Incy Wincy, we are sponsored by Prairie Fairy. Our theme this week is recycle, so you can alter something or use a recycled item on your project. I have used a washing tablet box and changed it into a recipe box. I tear out so many recipes from magazines and thought it was time to keep them all in one place. The image is Chef Gillian by Prairie Fairy. I'm not sure about the paper as it was from my scrap box. The fabric flowers were from an old dress of Martha's that was too tatty to go to the charity shop. Please check out the rest of the projects from the DT.

Ouch indeed Nikki .. .. I hope your head isn't quite so sore now!!!

What a fantastic recipe storage box.

I rip mine out of magazines and put them into an old lever arch file. Your storage looks much more inviting.

Love Jules xx
