FNSI show and tell…

Last night I continued to work on this gorgeous little wall hanging Give Thanks…

It is coming along nicely and I hope to have it finished up this weekend. I can’t wait to have it hanging up in the kitchen I think it is sew pretty!

In other news this week… DD1 has bought herself a new horse and he is gorgeous…

His name is Ritchie, Ruffles(DD1) bought him to train up and will sell him when he is ready. A great little venture for her. She just has a way with animals and if the training with Poppy(her other horse) is anything to go by I’m sure she’ll do a great job, but it’s going to be hard to sell him on, we love him already. He is a real sweetie.

Back in the sewing room I have been having a major reshuffle, there’s fabric flying here and there as I attempt to re-organise my small but humble stash. I have been following Megan from Mousehouse for a wee while now and she is going to be posting ‘The Organised Home Project’ once a week. This week it was the ‘Linen Cupboard and next week it’s ‘My Craft Space’ :oD  Here’s a few sneak peaks from my craft room this week…

I found these storage containers the other day and have ordered some more…

100_7702 (451 x 600)They are just the perfect size for storing the bits and pieces for each UFO or for storing up and coming projects…

100_7713 (600 x 451)This is for our panel project Lis 

Before and after photo’s of ‘My Craft Space’ to come next week.

You may have noticed I have been playing with my blog again and I am still not happy with it, please bear with me I hope to have a fab new look soon.

Keep Stitching…

I love how organized you are, and your fabric stash has wonderful colors in it. I have a couple of those bins, too, but most of my projects wind up in cigar boxes and candy or cookie tins. Your header is great! Gorjuss girls are the best! The project your worked on for FNSI is so cute! I look forward to seeing it hanging all finished!

Hi Michelle - I love your Friday night progress!

Doesn't it feel great to get things organised in the crafty department.

Good luck to your daughter with Ritchie - he does look like a sweetie.
