My resolution this year was to curb my magazine puchasing habit. And I have been really doing very well, until I read a review of Crafty Magazine and stumbled upon it in the newsagents.
See that title font - somehow reminiscent of Blueprint (still miss that magazine), add in red converse, and bandanas - breaking my resolution seemed a foregone conclusion.
But in my defence, I have at least used the purchase to kick start a little creativity. There was an article about making a cabinet of curiosities full of fabric insects. Now I have a soft spot for bugs on pins - I studied quaternary entomogy way back in the dim and distant past, when my brain cells were still firing - and spent many hours hunched over a microscope, teasing out bugs from soil samples and attempting to identify them.
The thought of fantastical fabric versions called to me.
So I raided the scrap box and got into moth mode.
My specimen cabinet is underway.
