OK, I said I was going to thoroughly tidy, and possibly rearrange, the studio. This is what it looked like at the start of the afternoon
this is what was hidden by the table cloth
I gave Malcolm the table to use in the garage (I bought it for £10 in a junk shop) and cleared out the corner .......
........ and emptied the top part of this unit, which I bought some years ago from a wool shop which was closing
Malcolm helped me lift if down (or should I say that I helped him!) and I then emptied the bottom section, and rearranged the other end of the room
now I need to put everything away
oh dear - that's not everything, there is all this too!
I will finish putting everything away on Saturday ....... and I will have to try hard not to be distracted by finding things that I forgot I had (I hope Malcolm doesn't read that bit!)
Lucie gave me this as a belated birthday present
what is it? It's a thread holder, for embroidery threads - I added a few lengths from my Welcome wallhanging, to let you see how it is used
I bought this magazine when we were in Hawick this morning
it is very different to other "lifestyle" magazines that I have bought over the years. I think it is Dutch, and it has a lovely quirky layout, with lots of handwritten bits
I also bought this little work basket in a junk vintage shop this morning
I wonder what sort of garment you would put boil-proof elastic in?!
to finish - the recent rain has meant that the River Teviot is full again ......... and hooray, the heron is back!
