TUSAL update for MAY 2009


Here is my container for TUSAL - May 2009
Looking rather snazzy and it is good to look and think about all that I have stitched this month - In that container are threads from the Papillion Sampler, and the Follow my Heart Samplers, as well as some threads from my English floral alphabet (that I do not believe I have yet shared with you - I'll drag it out - it's a long-running WIP - going back to April 2005!)
Behind my TUSAL - is a rose bowl purchased originally this month as a hospital vessel for our goldfish while their tank was cleaned. (Not a very successful one -it was too small and we lost a couple of fish in the transfer...) I decided it was ideal to store all the bobbins and bits that normally conglomerate on my stitching table waiting to be put away neatly when it overflows. Well, this bowl will now serve that purpose, and I can keep needle packets (with needles in them), packets of beads that I find all over the place, and bobbins waiting to be returned to my floss boxes. When the bowl is full, I'll be able to sort through it at once, knowing that all the little bits have not been lost to wherever that place is that seems to attract missing items....
Looking forward to seeing all the other TUSAL entries this month....

Brilliant idea Bronny, might have to nick that one lol. I end up with stuff stashed everywhere before I round it up to be put away

Your floss jar is looking pretty snazzy there. You'll have to go a little father if you want to catch up with Floss Ball though. LOL! I do like your idea of the bowl with all your accessories in it. I just might borrow that idea.

That sure is a great idea with that bowl!!

Love your idea with the bowl! Your finishes are wonderful, too. Your cat is just adorable. We have some orange tabbies waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge--they have the best personalities!

Nice and pretty!

The bowl idea is very clever. At the moment I have this carpenters chest of drawers with see through plastic drawers. They work quite well, but clutter still happens. Maybe if I had a glass bowl as well... Worth pondering.

I do love the tiny sewing machine in the picture. Is it for shoemaking?

I think you've started a trend with your bowl idea! I use a boring old cardboard square box to throw these sorts of things in, maybe i should pretty mine up to! Great TUSAL update.
