Cleaning Up

Every time I start a new project I have to clean my studio. I have to have everything in its place even if it means tearing it apart to start the new project.  I love clean and I like to find my stuff. I was going to be lazy and not clean first but I cannot find my twine/hemp stuff for my ornaments so I had to clean it up anyway. So I cleaned and I cleaned and I put stuff away and I still cannot find the stuff I was looking for. So I will have to buy some. I was really trying to use up what I have but the twine is the only thing I like for them.

I am stuck on one thing. I was going to stuff all the ornaments but I stuffed one and I am not sure if I like it much. I have not sewn them closed but I wanted to get an opinion on them. So, which one do you like better – stuffed or unstuffed ??005I have been busy working on all my redwork projects:001 While cleaning I started also de-cluttering. I have been stacking my finished stitcherys on a tub that sits under one of my tables. I decided to look and see what was in the tub – Ugh !!– remember my Halloween projects I found in the tub in my room – this was worse – just take a look for yourself:003Now I have to clean this mess up but I decided I am going to put together as I clean. I am going to finish every project in that bin – the mess will drive me crazy so I know I can do it!!!

I wanted to thank everyone who kept us in their thoughts while we deal with the loss of our little fur-ball Harry. So I will not drive you guys crazy talking about him, this will be the last time I mention him – I really wanted to show the pictures the girls did for Harry’s box, they are so sweet. They made these pictures to go inside with him. Gordon did not make one because he found it too hard to deal with loosing Harry.

This is from Alice – she wrote “Dear Harry I hope you have fun adventures. You will always be in my heart. I love you.” And she drew a picture of Harry, Snowball (he was our 1st guinea pig) and Pablo and then one of herself and Harry.

This one is from Natalie. They are so precious.

I need to get back to work. Have lots to do. If I could just stop watching this “In Session” court show on Tru TV – I just can’t pull myself away!!

Happy stitching and my next post I will have my giveaway!!! I hope to hear from you then!!

I am so sorry to hear of Harry's passing today. He was a handsome guy with the cutiest little dance when scratched. Always got a kick out of that dance. And also his 'talking' whenever someone opened the frig.

I know you all miss him. Especially you, Jennifer. Thinking of you all. XXO

Thank you Janet, that means a lot to me!

So sorry for your loss. The letters To Harry may help with their feelings of loss too.

Could you do the ornaments with batting between rather than stuffing? It would fill them out a bit but not blur your red work. I'm enjoying reading backwards on your posts.

Donnie - super idea, why didn't I think of that - I needed your help I guess!
