I have done a couple of chunky pages swaps (they are 3x3 pieces of artwork) and have been puzzled for ages how to display them, but yesterday in the middle of a marathon spring clean of my kitchen I decided that they would look great on top of my doors. I had just enough to do the double doors to the garden and the door to the sitting room. (sorry crappy cell pix)

a lot of these pages are double sided so I simply put them up with masking tape, i am resigned to them falling down and needing to be re-put up again and again.

i also have a collection of cookie cutters, some of them are antique and so I hammered in a load of panel pins into the end of the kitchen cupboards and have them all on display. I love collections of stuff...but have way too much stuff in my house. I like to get things on walls stops drawers getting filled up with things. Incidentally the two pieces of kitchen eqipment hanging at the bottom are an antique butter curler and herb chopper. Years ago at an auction, I got a couple of boxes of old kitchen equipment that came from the kitchens of an old convent that was shutting down, I love old kitchenware. The utilitarian stuff rather than posh china.

Always in need of supplies, especially fabric- let's do a personal swap. I'll craft in return for fabric (I am a fabric tart)
