I've replenished my magic dust. There should be enough to sprinkle on at least 6 months of creatures..... .

Part of the major overhaul of the Cupboard has included the addition of a windowsill to house some of my favourite things. I've surrounded my immediate workspace with books, baubles, flora & fauna and all manner of other inspirational pieces. Everything else, materials etc, are now behind me (mostly in archive boxes) I'll be posting more pics, now & again, over the next couple of weeks as a sort of slow meandering tour of my little sanctuary..... . EDIT: I've been asked if the object bottom centre of pic is my take on the covid virus. It's not. It's a sample (a dried, pierced avocado stone) that I made for my Masters in December 2018! & no, it's not witchcraft..... 😳 @ma_contemporary_crafts_ #macontemporarycrafts . . #thecuriositycupboard #wireandwordtwister #forgottenthingfinder #magicdustcollector #thecuriositycupboardlockdown

I've been playing around with a larger piece today (when having a tea break) that I started on Tuesday. This time I'm weaving a web on a handle which I found on the Thames foreshore last July. I'd like to think that it was once attached to a bubbling witch's cauldron but it's probably from a small cooking pot or pail. The thread is fairly thick & linen-like (which I'm guessing is maybe for carpet weaving?!) & came from a bag of reclaimed scraps. Should keep me busy for a few weeks..... What's occupying your lockdown? Happy weekend everyone 🕸xx . . . #thecuriositycupboard #collectprotectcurate #wireandwordtwister #forgottenthingfinder #magicdustcollector #thecuriositycupboardlockdown #dorsetwheel #dorsetbutton #usingwhatisathand

I thought it was best to 'check in' as it's been a while! So what's been happening here at the Cupboard? Well I was ill for a couple of weeks. It started just before lockdown so unlike everyone else I didn't feel inclined to spend the fortnight cleaning & tidying! (It was a flu virus but whether it was 'the' virus I don't know) As soon as I started feeling better I decided to spend some time redesigning the layout in my workshop & have started a thorough change around. There's been some painting, some moving of shelves and a lot of measuring & puzzle solving! It'll probably take at least another week to sort out properly then I'll share some pics. Until then here's a pic of today's upheaval (just after the showers that weren't forecast) Happy April everyone! . . . #thecuriositycupboardlockdown #stayhomestaysafe

It's a lovely cold, grey day today so I went for a wander. There's a shipping container nearby that has a wonderful patchwork of paint on it. I've been meaning to take pics of it for months, so I took the long route round to it.... . . . #thecuriositycupboard #collectprotectcurate #wireandwordtwister #forgottenthingfinder #magicdustcollector #thecuriositycupboardlockdown #wonderingandwandering

I've gone & lost momentum with #marchmeetthemaker (it was bound to happen, I'm too easily distracted) I've been busy sorting out the mess that has engulfed the Cupboard & rewriting/re-prioritising my to do list. Top of the list (after Cupboard organising) is sorting out my clothes. There's a lot of mending, making and dyeing fun ahead of me but probably not much in the way of creatures for now. Anyway , as a catch up here's some photography (day 23, using my phone #nofilter ) of a Dorset wheel I'm working on whilst trying to top up my vitamin D levels. The only tools & equipment (day 22) needed is a needle. This is something that any of you can do with the most limited of supplies and it doesn't have to be complicated. Mine have evolved to this style but you can find plenty of inspiration on Pinterest of 'Dorset buttons' & if you need help getting started, you can always DM me too! . . . #marchmeetthemaker2020 #thecuriositycupboard #collectprotectcurate #wireandwordtwister #forgottenthingfinder #magicdustcollector #thecuriositycupboardlockdown #dorsetwheel #dorsetbutton #knittingneedle #usingwhatisathand
