....stitching away, so still nothing new to show, but I thought I would show you where I have some of my stitching treasures, as I have been asked a couple of times to show where I put them.
I have them all put out around the home, but the majority live in our guest room, so if you ever come to stay this is what you'll see in there. The picture above shows my pinkeep wooden basket, its divided in 2 halves the front has my pinkeeps I have either made or received through gifts/exchanges and the back has all the needlebooks again that I have either made or been sent.
Also on the dressing table (which is a family heirloom, - Marks grandad made it for his grandma as a wedding present when they married - there is a matching wardrobe, in the middle sits all the redwork pieces I have.
Above the dressing table to the left is my pretty hooks I hang tassels and small hearts.
To the right on the dressing table is my beautiful thread box that mum made me for Christmas last year and a small basket with pincushions in. As you can see I make full use of all available space and have small ornies and my bags hanging from the mirrors.
To the right of the dressing table next to the wardrobe is my set of multi-drawers, which again is another painting project I have in my minds eye how I want to paint these, but again haven't had the time this year, they store all my fabrics.
On the top of the drawers is my fob/ornament tree and around its base I have tins and flatfolds.
As you can see I have almost run out of space in here, so my dad brought me some great shelving to put up, that is like boxes, dad kindly undercoated them but as yet I haven't found the time to paint them and get Mark to hang them up, which I will soon.
I love my guest room even though its north facing and isn't the lightest room in the house, I think its because this is my stash room too and I also have a lot of my framed pictures on the walls in here. I spend quite a bit of time in here.
Tomorrow is going to be finishing day, so next week I may have some pieces to show, but not everything as quite a few have been secrets.
