On Monday, when William (2)was at our place, he put his head around my sewing room door, and surveyed the scene.
"It is very messy!" he said. "Who did it?"
Well I had to own up.
He looked at me with a serious face for a few seconds, then asked
"Is it naughty?"
Now I do have shelves which are reasonably tidy and organised, and where I know where to find things.
On the other hand, there are areas on the floor where things get dumped and stepped over (or sat on)......
And there is a table (not my worktable) which is all too convenient for leaving supplies and projects until I can deal with them.
It is not as if my sewing room is just a forgotten and neglected space. It is a place of work and activity.
Look at some of the things I have been working on in the past couple of weeks...
This is my first page for our 2010 RR....partly finished. My theme is going to be "Time", and I will call this page "Time and Place."
Here are some needlefelted needlebooks that I have been making to go with my felted apple pincushions.
I have completed the fronts and backs and handles of at least a dozen bags. They only need to be sewn around the sides and lined.
And I have made - from start to finish - this quilt for a new baby in the family in the past fortnight.
Like William, I like to play.
But William has been taught to put away his toys when he has finished playing. He cannot understand why Granny does not do the same thing.
Perhaps I will have a "tidy up" and surprise him!
