I didn't feel up to working last night, but I thought I should tidy my desk ready to start. So here is the view from the glue side.
|I still have a little bowl of homeless things in the middle there.|
Shall I show the reason that I am finally able to be tidy? Here is the second chest of drawers I have been waiting for. The idea is to keep a drawer for each sewing pattern, so as I cut out pieces they can go straight in a drawer. Each drawer is removeable, so when I am working I can have the relevant drawer by the side of me.
|Today's task is to label the drawers|
Here are a couple of other new additions.
Whilst at my mum's I ran into Laughing Yaffle. We had a chat about free motion sewing and baby blue sewing machine and I mentioned that the needle didn't lift high on the machine. So she kindly lent me this embroidery ring to try out, and I can report that it is perfect for the task.

And here is my another tidy purchase. It is a hangy bag from sisters crafty creations. I have bought it as a rubbish bin! Because space is limited around my desk, I keep moving my bin, so I thought this would be ideal. It isn't for big rubbish, just the little trimmings that I make of sewing threads.
