and so it continues...
I bought this bobbin-type thing a long time ago -
I walked into the local antique store to see what was what and there it was, just inside the door
it leaped off the table, into my hand, and straight into my heart
last week, in my fit of organizing, I wrapped some burlap around the centre and then
some of my favourite fragments of lace
all secured with beaded pearl-topped pins
I love the metal wrapping on the ends.
it's all worn and dented, banged up from years of use as a...
haven't a clue - no idea what life it lived before it came to live in my sewing room,
but what a retirement it has now; a harbour for old lace.
I think I like this kind of organization
which is a good thing as the closet is next on the list...
but then again, tomorrow is May, and a new month means a new word
I'm mulling over "procrastinate"
it has a nice ring to it...
after I tidied, I played a while in Photoshop
with some Kim Klassen Textures
I love what that girl does with a photograph!
everything looks pretty when it's misty
and whether or not the picture's in focus is unimportant!
below you'll find pictures of a beautiful gift I received from Tina @ Tinybear Studio
Tina's been playing lately with snippets
snippets of fabric, snippets of lace, snippets of embroideries
bits of thread, oddments of cloth
I think they're adorable and she sent me the prettiest one!
you really must go and see all the wonderful things she has made with the tiniest bits of magic
I promise you'll be inspired!
I was so inspired that I have chosen
as my word for May
I guess this means the closet is still next on the list
humbug is another good word
