and talks to me about my work and ideas. I run things by him and he will listen and suggest or tell me .." leave it like that, its perfect" or "another button there might look good"
When I set a day out in my head where I am in there for cleaning, putting away and making baskets, it is one of my favourite days. It's like ironing .. I can not stand that chore, until I am ironing beautiful fabrics and tying them with little scraps of fabric or wrapping them in tissue. Then I could quiet happily iron and press for hours on end.
When I go to my button drawers (not as bad as you may think they are tiny drawers, although I could happily fill large drawers left to my own devices and unlimited money!) I am happy looking at ones that I have bought for designs or yet to be designed projects. There is something about mother of pearl that brings out the magpie in me!
Embroidery threads from vintage ones that I have found or the hand dyed Shaker ones that I buy in America .. I am happy to sit and sort through the boxes.
So I have to be a bit disciplined with myself or I would be there days later with more mess and nothing in its rightful place! You would find me buried under boxes purring like a cat on catnip!
On Friday I went to my workroom and set about the tidy, hoover and dust business but first I had to photograph some things so that they could be put away safely. It takes quiet along time to gather to photograph as you can imagine and I feel the photography is as important to my readers as my words are.
Then I remembered I needed to go and get some needles. I have a large vintage Kilner jar for my
Well needless to say the day went faster than I did and I still was not finished at all... I am still sorting stitchery baskets to photograph as asked but lots of you but I promise I am on it this week.
You can see my dilemma from the photo's I was so distracted but the tidy is nearly done, which means this week I can set to and make up the baskets properly with all their ingredients needed for each project ... including beading needles now! and so later in the week I will report on my basket making.
It is a busy week of work and house things as its my husbands Birthday this coming weekend and there will be a house full and a couple of get together's, the largest of which is on Saturday night. Friday night is a small gathering which is his actual Birthday and so Friday afternoon there will be no more work for me this week, as I will be in the kitchen cooking and preparing!
I hope you all have a wonderful day and as always Happy Stitching!
