In here are orts from the B Sampler and the LK snowman. There are also threads from 'Inspiration', my current WIP. At the back you can see my goldfish bowl, which I use to hold bits and bobs - most importantly, all the bobbins I've recently used because I've been too lazy to spend the time to put them back in my boxes. Every so often I have a fit of cleanout and sort the bobbins back into their correct order. Also at the back is a FireKing jadeite D-Mug. I've a small collection of FK jadeite - perhaps growing at the rate of one piece per year. I've a set of 4 of these mugs, 8 chilli bowls and a Jane Ray creamer, and sugars and cup/saucer.
Of mice.... it appears that more than one mouse has made itself comfortable. Night before last, I was awoken by the cat and his acrobatics at 2:30. I was presented by one dead mouse. (thank goodness, because I just was NOT up to chasing a live one around at that time of morning!!!!) This afternoon, there was a commotion in John's room. The cat had yet another mouse. Harry was very brave and removed dead mouse to the garbage. I'm placing mousetraps in John's room tonight!!!!so far the tally is...... mousetrap : 1 cat : 2
If if find more mice in John's room, then he is so going to spit it when I tell him that he'll be moving EVERY STICK OF FURNITURE and EVERY ITEM OF CLOTHING from his room until I find the nest of mice!!! Perhaps if I tell him that mice eat guitar strings it might become more important to him! ugh!
I also recently changed the blog lists on either side of my blog - thought I'd try to list them alphabetically. Doesn't work for me I'm afraid - it's going to take awhile, but I'm going to try to re-sort the blog lists into Stitchy/Patchwork/Thrifting/Frood & other. What category are YOU in????
I've got near to 200 blogs now on my reading list - It might take a while to read each one and re-organise you all. You all have such interesting tid-bits of information to share! Thank you.
