I thought I’d post this picture at the top to divert attention from the fact that I am posting a pile of crap a bit further down. This blog is my home page you see, and while I am trying to motivate myself to clean up my room, I don’t want to be shocked to the point of inaction while this blog post remains at the top of the screen. But still… I need enough shame to get rid of it all! (Or at the very least, hide it better)
Right. Explanation. This is a hat and scarf set I made for a friend who is taking it over to her friend in France when she returns home (for a few months) in September. I owed her some fingerless gloves but my list of people to knit for continues to grow so she sacrificed her hands for me to knit her a gift. All very well when she’s heading off to Europe in SUMMER. Not much of a sacrifice at all. But I know you’ll all be proud of me considering how much I HATE knitting scarves. And in moss stitch! I can’t believe I finished it. Mind you, it is baby-sized. That could have something to do with it.
And onto the horrible stuff:
Well, actually first we will deal with the gorgeousness that is a corner of my room. Yes. My craft room is in my bedroom. Poor Tobin has been shunted to the far side of the room and has approximately 30cm on his side of the bed because my crafty collection threatens to engulf the rest.
Anyway, so I bought this cabinet to house my machines and anything else I could jam in there. I was hunting for a Horn cabinet but people keep bidding a stupid amount for them on trademe and I don’t quite have the competitiveness (or the money!) to go through with a bidding war.
So yes. One corner down. Only 3 (and the rest of the room) to go! As evidence, here are some photos:
Sitting on top of three fabric bins, I have *stuff* piling up. Hopefully I’ll be able to pawn a whole bunch of it off on my cousin. A dress needs to be sold or taken back to its owner. Fabric needs to be used. I’m thinking of free cycling the soap making kit. Actually, hold that thought. Anyone want a soap making kit? It’s all there. Although Hannah may have pulled it to bits the other day and strewn it around the room, but otherwise complete. Lemme know and I’ll send it to ya.
And another pile. Man alive it’s a lot of mess to deal with. And gross plastic bins too. And candles. I mean, LOVE candles… but I never use them! Argh. And then my yarn bin. (The rest is hiding in my wardrobe…. thank goodness I have a big wardrobe.)
I’m hoping to have the rest of my room looking sparkly and clean like the cabinet so that Tobin has
less nothing to whinge about.
So, soap making kit anyone? I promise it’ll come with extra goodies. AND you are doing me a favour.
