Since we added Missie and Jess the kittens to our family, my stitchy stash has been increasingly in danger! At first, they left it well alone but now Jess has decided that she rather likes the taste of DMC, Missie likes to swipe my needles and they both like to sleep in my workbasket!
I am so used to be able to leave everything as I left it that it has come as rather a shock that I will now have to pack away each night. So, never one to miss an opportunity to spend money on stash, I have made a couple of purchases to make the tidying away a little easier! :-D
First of all, I invested in a little unit with drawers in. The gap between the wall and the sofa is so small that I really didn't think I would find one that would work. But this little unit is perfect - I picked it up in Argos (and it comes in other colours too). The top drawer has my threads and wips for my QS, the second drawer my BAP and the bottom one has my spare q-snaps and bits and pieces. The top is also useful for standing my ORT tin on ;-)
But, not content with that, I decided I
wanted needed something to pack away my current wip each night. I didn't want to have to rummage around in the drawers to get everything together each time I wanted to stitch. So, I found this!
I first saw it when I went to London at the beginning of the holidays in another colourway but this one has just been released and I just had to have it. So now I have my very own caravan - it really does make me smile everytime I look at it!
