This is part of the reorganization that I have been attempting. In this space I have some scrapping items. Many of the important items for scrapping are in my take along totes that I take to our weekly meetings. I do some at home also, when I use my Cricket and Big Shot machine.
In the drawers I have sewing scissors, attachments for my machine and some of my reference books. I have a drawer devoted to smash books and one for painting and another for misc. things. My knitting work, yarn and patterns are in the three green soft side boxes on top of the shelf.
I'm still working on the final touches and labels. The rest of the space I use for storing my in process and finished scrapbooks. When I finish the ones I am working on, I won't be doing any more. Maybe small books or more smash books.. Well thanks for looking and tomorrow I'll be posting my Feb. Santa and the progress on the sheep. Thanks for looking. Stay safe and warm.
This is the cross stitch project currently resting on the couch. I stitch in the afternoons while watching all the old "Law and Order" reruns. Oh my they all look so young now. I just learned how to down load pics from my phone. So I'm posting these here to share.
This is not a light dessert, but I needed some chocolate with walnuts. We are eating little by little and not over doing it at all. A tiny piece is all you need.
Found this material, Waverly, at Joann's the other day. I'm making a cushion to go on top of the ottoman I have had forever. Going on the sun porch with a tray on top to use as a coffee table. Thanks for stopping by.
You say you are behind. I reply why yes I am. I have yet to pick my Santa for Feb. I have to make my light dessert for the month. And, I am still unpacking boxes in the entryway and searching for my missing souvenir plates.
However, hubbie and I did set up our case to sell some stuff at a local antiques mall. We managed to find two new Stangl birds. I think they look springy
I'm slowly oh so slowly, arranging my craft items in the closet that holds most of the stuff. Some of it is stored in bags that I take to scrapping each week. The pictures are stored elsewhere. In this closet I have yarn, paper, memorabilia, sewing items and a lot of instruction books. I had to go through all of them, naturally. I have some of the cute sewing items on top of the three drawer cubes.
We are having work done on the house, outside. All this has to be done before that starts.
I will be so happy when it is done, but meanwhile I am determined to enjoy the process of really pulling our home together. Well thanks for joining me and please come back for a look at more finished projects and other stuff. Thanks for coming over to visit.
Just a small amount of the beautiful legend on this wonderful piece. I won't get this framed until I have more than one or two to frame.
This is my January Santa. I have picked out the next one already. I hope to do one per month this year. I also want to do the Mary Beale ornaments I have had for years. One per month or so. The have a lot of stitching in them, but oh so worth it.
I'm still looking for the little bird ornament I did last year. I'm thinking I will finish them all at once and be done with it.
Hope your week is filled with moments that you will cherish.
I fixed this for our take along to New Year's dinner at a friends house. Just the simplest filled angel food cake. The filling is cool whip and crushed strawberries and then layered with sliced berries. Frosted with plain cool whip and slices whole berries. It is light and did taste good after pork and sauerkraut.
I've decided to do one of the PS Santas each month in the coming year. This is the first one. He is holding a little tree and a new sled for a good boy or girl. It was fun to do, but I'll do the others on some kind of linen or other fabric. I used the called for colors by DMC.
I am also going to do a Mary Beale angel each month and I'll show you that next time. I plan on using linen, have started one on Confederate grey and so far I like it. Ill do all the stitching and then do most of the finishing at the same time.
I hope to take pictures of all the finishes I'm planning in 2014 tomorrow and will post them soon.
Please stay safe and warm wherever you are and thanks for stopping by.
