This is my new - by that I mean 'new-to-me' - pine cupboard. It's great to have it for a couple of reasons~ it used to belong to my hubby's grandmother and we were more than fond of her, so to have something that she owned is special, but for a more practical reason I'm glad to have it as I desperately need storage solutions for my craft/prim den/computer room.
The room itself is pretty small - compact and bijou- or in our common phraseology, you couldn't swing a cat in it, and I hasten to add that I've never tried to swing a cat in it and never would, so cat lovers, pleased do not be offended!!!
I do like how it fits into the room - the pic below is what you see as you walk in, it is directly facing the doorway.
Well, I couldn't wait to get all organised and pretend to be efficient and neat and tidy so I'll show you a few pics of my efforts at straightening things up, because by tomorrow, things will hardly be so ship-shape as I rifle through my stash in a hurry to finish something!
Some pics of wool and fabric I tried to sort out!!
Now while all this is great, I confess to being a wee bit disappointed with my latest storage solution - where do I put all the other STUFF? I've so many other plastic bags crammed full of odd bits and pieces, scraps, makedos, decorations for different seasons and I am tired of tripping over them but I seriously underestimated how much stuff I have lying around.
What do you do to store your stuff? I've bagfuls in the attic space and we don't have a basement. If you've got any clever solutions, please HELP!!
Oh well, I suppose this is what happens when you keep stitchin' and makin' stuff and finding more great freebie patterns!
I found this free harvest pattern on Pamela Dervarits beautiful blog 'Our Pioneer Homestead' blog.
She is a very talented girl and her blog is inspirational.
The only other stitchin' done this week was another freebie from Kountry Porch Primitives.
I have simplified the pattern though - just for time's sake.
I just wanted to post a couple of other links for any one interested in Amish fiction and recipes etc. It's got some free Amish short story downloads and reviews and is Amishreader.com
Also I would love to give some encouragement to a fellow blogger not long started and would love you all to visit and follow Felicia's blog Raggedy Creations. She makes wonderful penny rugs and you'll be entertained by her stories about her cat Tucker James so head on over and sign up!
Thanks so much for stoppin' in!
