It's been a so therapeutic to give my little wee craft space and total clean up and re-organise. I've been spending small bits of time going through everything, and I'm sure many a fellow crafter will agree - boy oh boy do we like to collect! It's strange the random things I found. I had to wonder at my ability to hoard some things that I was never going to use.
The other strange oddity that came to me, was how little I make for myself of the practical variety. I mean, I have the ability to sew, and yet, there were my pins all hanging on for dear life onto a crumbling bit of foam that was glued onto the plastic container they came in mostly likely many moons ago (dare I say even from my mum's sewing kit..)
No...it would not do....not for this re-vamped sewing space. So I've been busy whipping up a pin cushion (or five) and then I happened to glance at the cardboard packet of needles.....Quick....A needle book (or two) created quickly. So whilst some of these most practical delights are for my own, I couldn't resist making a few as gifts. It's marvellous how they brighten up my crafting space!
But for more creativity....head over to this space (but watch out...there is so much to look at your derrière could soon been getting a dose of pins and needles!)
