WOYWW 103 - Sew Much Fun



I've been busy, but can't show anything because it's all been PIF or Design Team projects. I can show you my new storage things though. They each hold 4 drawers which are the perfect amount of Ink Pads of a sort (I like to sort by Dye, Chalk and Pigment) to rummage through or Adhesives (Tape is all in it's own drawer now!). Amazing how much more I can do when I know where stuff is lol. I've also liberated the sewing machine from the closet.

I'm also very sore, I spent Monday raking up 2 inches of acorns out of the front yard I'm trying to turn into a shade garden (it's pretty small), and weed whacking the back yard and getting ready to plant. Tuesday my body complained bitterly. Today I'm hoping to set up the badminton net and, if I'm very very lucky, I'll find all the pieces for the tetherball too :D.

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander, better yet, join in :D.

2 inches of acorns, good grief..in war time, you could've made coffee! Our storage is the same but different - I keep inkpads by type and have a separate draw for tapes and foam and glue. Works really well, huh.

Tis nice to be organised occasionally isnt it! enjoy your sewing - I have a lovely pile of new material to have a play with which will probably spur me on to sewing on some layouts and cards too! Thanks for sharing. Sunshine Girl No. 60

Nothing like seeing a liberated sewing machine, I'm always blowing the cobwebs off mine. Really like your storage idea.

Great storage and your sewing machine is a beauty - all those stitches, I can even see some embroidery stitches. Weed whacking! What a picture that conjures up - I can just see you with badminton racquet chasing round the garden whacking your weeds :) Have a great week. Elizabeth x #53
