  • I'm so excited!!

    Hi all,

    I went up into our loft today for something mundane and found TWO BLACK BIN LINERS FULL OF FABRIC, FELT, WOOL, NOTIONS, THREADS, BUTTONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had forgotten all about them, they must have been there for about six years!!!

    I think my mojo is coming back!!!!! Hooray!!! If only I had the time to create.

    Just thought I'd share this with you as we all know the feeling of coming across a nest of fabric and notions!!!!!

    I know how you feel. Urbtaf has been sorting through all the beads stashed in the garage and bagging up the ones I won't use so we can sell them on the stall. They're mostly acrylic and glass beads that I bought when I first started making jewellery and I know I won't use most of them now but he has discovered some little gems amongst them - that I'd totally forgotten about - and I've had a few ideas of what to do with them.

    Its like putting on an old coat and finding a fiver in the pocket!

              I have stuff all over the place in various boxes and bags, my problem is finding the stuff I know I have... somewhere....
              When I was younger I often used to put a spare fiver in my pocket in case of emergency, It was lovely to find it months later. My FIL gave DH an old classic black suit about 5 years ago and we found some tickets for a dance in 1972 and four brand new old £1 notes in the pocket.

                How lovely. I always knew there was a good side to spring cleaning once every 'Ten Years'.
                God helps them that help themselves.
