A Tidy Up!!!

What did I do on the long weekend - well I bought the little shelf on the right and decided to have a go at tidying up my sewing nook!  I must say I feel inspired to sew a bit more now and hopefully should be able to sew a bag together for my mum for Mother's Day!  (I didnt realise how much stuff I had gathered either which was a little bit of a shock so maybe now is the time to start using it and putting it to use).

Knitting update - my green socks - the second one has been started!  The tiny tea leaves cardigan that I started for Isabelle has been ripped out as I didnt like the yarn I used to knit it in so perhaps I will start again later on in a different yarn.  I am planning on finishing up a bolero for Isabelle (which hopefully still fits) and a baby hooded jacket is nearing completion too.  I only have the hood and sleeves to go.  Perfect knitting weather today too, cloudy and grey.  I just hope it doesnt rain whilst I go to pick Isabelle up otherwise I might need to think about investing in a pair of gumboots!!

There are some lovely gumboots for sale up here. Paisley patterns, Russian doll, spots, stripes. No idea of the price but such a change from the black ones I wore to school when i was Isabelle's age.

Damn, now you reminded me of the fact that my craft room needs to be cleaned-up!

how industrious! My craft room aka unused rumpus under houe aka the dungeon - is a disgrace!

Pop over to my blog I left something for you! : )

Grey day here too! My sewing has taken over the dining room! WM only objected to the ever-present ironing board and removed it but the machine and assorted quilting paraphernalia still occupy the room!

Ahhh, very nice. I love it when I have a clean room to sew in. It doesn't happen very often though!

You know what? I'm coming around to thinking that a pair of wellie boots (English Mr influence), could be an excellent component of this winter's uniform...

Hi Sue, I love the look of your tidy space, how inspiring!! Thanks for all your comments lately, sorry I haven't visited for a while. I will send you the lamington recipe soon, I thought I had a copy in my computer but will type it up for you when i get a sec. Hope all is well with you, are you having a lovely sunny day? xo

So neat and tidy, it nearly makes me want to go and tidy my craft room up....well nearly, but just not now.

doesn't feel great to get organized?! wish I could motivate or maybe bribe you to come visit and organize my craft area ;-)

What a great space Sue!!! I love the little meatsafe looking cupboard to the left of the pic with the cow print lamp on top, just gorgeous!!!

I really need to do the same as you over the coming weekend I think as I'm sure I have loads of goodies hidden in several nooks and crannies throughout my craft-y space..

Thanks for the inspiration..

Hugs - Jodie :)
