When it's spring again
I'll sing again
Tulips from Amsterdam
Winter has dragged on here (New Zealand), and I'm longing for spring to arrive. I need more sun in the days please. Today was a teaser of what is to come. I managed to actually get three loads of washing on the line and dried. First time I've been able to do that for a long time.
Anyway, enough of my dribble - here's what I have been up to this past week.
I attended an online workshop by JThouse to learn how to make her motif called 'Dione'.
I played YARN CHICKEN with it .... and lost. I ran out of thread just before the very last three picot edgings to the very last 'leaf'. How very annoyed I was (hah! I won't repeat here what I actually said).
But at least I now know how to make the motif.
Embroidery on my Crazy Quilt block #8.
Filling in details on some motifs.
Craft Room Organising
Since moving into our new home back in March, this room was 'earmarked' for my craft studio, and also as a spare tv lounge.
This part of the room is my sewing area. All my craft books will be on the bottom shelves, and then all my sewing equipment will be on the top shelves close at hand for my sewing/project table.
The three red stacked boxes on the floor on the left have more of my books yet to be unpacked, I hope they will all fit on the shelves ok.
I'm looking forward to having this place sorted soon so that I can plug in my sewing machine that I have not been able to use for well over a year now.
All this in the photo has been in storage all that time as well. Unpacking it is like Christmas and lots of birthdays all arrived at once and I am being reunited with long lost friends here too, lol.
I hope to have the table clear by next week and carry on sorting the other parts of this room, some of which will be the art & designing area. Lots more unpacking yet.
So that was my busy week.
And this has been another YOP post
