Isn't he lovely? And what a clever idea to use an embroidery hoop. I had half a suspicion that this could be for me, as the space for the name was very small!
And she also sent me an extra goodie - a tea towel.
At first I thought it was too nice to use, but then it would only sit in a draw, and never get seen. So I will use it, but selectively. Thanks again Nicole.
And so on to the chaos theory. You know the thing - a butterfly flaps it's wings in Valtice and there's a hurricane in China - or something slightly more complex than that. But it's happened here. A casual chat over dinner on Friday has led to chaos. We're changing the spare spare room from a study/sewing room/bedroom, back to a bedroom. This has meant throwing out years of paperwork, 4 or 5 years worth of back copies of Gardeners World Magazine, cards that I have been saving for years because I like the picture and was going to "do something" with them. I have also cleared out clothes and shoes I haven't worn for years. I have 3 really good suits left over from the days when I wore suits, which are no more thank goodness. Then in order to make room for me back in the dining room, together with the remaining accumulated paperwork and books, I have also tidied out all the drawers and cupboards in the dining room and lounge. Not to mention what in the garage! You get the picture.
Today, the tidying got as far as the spice drawer, although how I don't know - the kitchen wasn't included in the move around. I think I must've got the bug. But I think you will agree it needed it
So when I was in Tesco this morning I bought these
Those clippy stackable containers - 16 of them. And here is the after photo
As you can see, I've had a thrilling day, the highlight of which is cleaning out a kitchen drawer. How sad is that?
I'm going to feed the muts, then do some sewing. TTFN
