I am always planning projects in my head or on Pinterest, and so often if it is for the house or for me, it gets put on the back burner because work and family come first. My house hasn’t had a door number on it since our walls were repainted a couple of years ago. Not great when so many of my orders are collected from the house!

I really wanted a wooden slice with our number on, but have you seen how expensive they are? For the kind of thing I was looking for, it would be little short of £100. So I started looking at ideas I could manage myself. A couple of days ago I finally started drawing the numbers onto a wooden slice I got from Hobbycraft of all places! Normally I find things are much more expensive in there, but I found these when they were promoting pyrography on offer.

I still have a long way to go, but what do you think of progress so far?
