In our 3 months here I have now rearranged my craft area 3 times and I have a suspicion that in my attempt to find the most streamlined, space saving set up possible I have achieved the exact opposite. Each rearrangment works so well in my head. But alas just like that beautiful singing voice I hear in my head it doesn’t work out so well on application. So right now everything is scattered wider than is practical. But rather than move it around a 4th time when I know it’s not going to make much difference I implimented The Workbasket again. There’s no good way to photograph a basket of unmade stuff but it makes this post a little less wordy if I post a photo of it:
I had one briefly last year but the cat started sleeping in it so that ended that experiment. This time it’s a bit higher off the ground so I hope to get a bit more use out of it. All my WIP’s, UFO’s and other not quite done things sit in it awaiting attention. They may not get it of course, it’s not a magical workbasket but at least they’re all in one place. A ball awaiting closing, another try at knitting (I may have cast on 6 stitches, I may have just made a mess resembling 6 stitches), white tshirt scraps to be tea dyed for dolls heads. My To Do list is no smaller but at least most of it is now in one place.
Have you read the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer? You either love it or hate it. I requested Twilight from my library and after starting at 134 on the reserves queue I finally got it last week. Loved it, devoured it. And am still 44 in the queue for the 2nd book, 93 for the 3rd book and haven’t even bothered reserving book 4 yet. I ‘accidentally’ read a few spoilers online too (if you’re going to put SPOILER it’s just begging me to read it!!) so I am now REALLY dying to read the other books. Does anyone in New Zealand have the 2nd, 3rd and 4th books they could lend me? I’ll pay postage. I’ll have them back in your hands in record time, I just have to read them before 2010!!!
