More cross-stitch stuff -- Kate recently posted about some patterns she had finished with and wanted to give away, so I did a little swap with her for a couple of mine. I just love getting packages that say "Royal Mail" on them! But, I still have some more little patterns that I'd like to give away because I know I'll never stitch the same project twice. So, in no particular order, they are:
a tiny apple picture:
a lovely nasturtium bookmark
and two very old (i.e. 30-40 years!) Danish patterns for a thistle, and an owl bell-pull that I made up into a pillow for my motherLeave a comment if you'd like any of these.
Now onto something new! I woke up the other morning thinking about the mess in our hall closet, for some reason -- on the shelf is a big jumble of scarves, hats, knapsacks and other "stuff" that all falls on me when I try to pull out the one item I want. Inspiration: get three boxes or baskets to separate the categories and make better use of the space.
Then when I went to measure this morning, it suddenly turned into a bigger project:
- take everything out of the closet
- CLEAN IT, for heaven's sake! Do you see those cobwebs in the corner?
- and slap a coat of fresh paint in there. It probably still has the original paint from 1940!
- then weed out about half the stuff before putting things away
Progress reports to follow... in the meantime, isn't this the cutest? The inside of the closet door has a little shelf to put your bag on while you apply that last touch of lipstick before leaving the house!
