My craft room…

…is a metaphor for my state of mind. Packed with ideas and fun stuff but disorganised and a mess. The sketch above is my broad tidying plan. My stash is so bad now that I will be disposing of lots soon. Those lucky charity shops!

Done and dusted…

Yeah, right. Those of you who have been with me for a while (hello, thankyou!!) will know full well my propensity for starting rather than finishing projects. I may not have said much about making recently but I can confirm I remain consistent in my scattyness So, just to give comfort to my fellow stitchoholics,…
