|An ultra simple tile topper|
Due to my aforementioned obsession with using every scrap, I collected the little off-cuts in a jar which I eventually filled of course. What now? I thought........

The rules of this game are that I can't amend the scrap by cutting or remelting parts of it , I can only accessorise it with things like beads for eyes, feathers, drawn on legs etc. Sometimes a shape shouts out at me, other times when I'm certain it has to be something, I have to pick it up & turn it in all directions until it becomes clear to me.If I get stuck I rope my fellow crafty friends to help out with a fresh pair of eyes!

Now here's one of the times when working alone is a shame.I was doing a celebration dance around the workroom & the only one I had to show it to was my wee Westie, who to be honest, was visibly underwhelmed.
