When I first moved out on my own, I was so excited about having a place with a room just for my crafts. A place to store my yarn and supplies, a place to sew, and paint....

I started out with good intentions, but I just can't seem to keep the darn thing clean.It doesn't help that I often use it as the room to hide things when company is coming over and I need to tidy up quick. Just toss it in and shut the door.
But I really want to get started on sewing some bags for the shop. Not to mention some presents I have planned. And I wouldn't mind getting back to making jewellry - but none of that can be done until I get the room under control.
So on Sunday, I was determined to get a handle on things. I set to it under the careful supervision of Mr. Rocky.

I have a whole sweater quantity of Elsebeth Lavold Cotton Patine

Right after I add these two new House Cat skeins to my stash that is...
