Organised for 2014

Fresh New Year.  I am going to be more organised this year.  There it is in black and white, so it must be true.  The metamorphosis has already begun…  Here is the overhaul so far …

My acrylic yarn stash – thanks to my mum for giving me a yarn winder for Christmas!

My sewing threads and bobbins – I found a great sewing box in Oxfam today.  It fitted all my sewing things in.

I am so excited – I can see all my things in one glance.  Hmm, that means I have to start on my mending pile though, no excuses now.

All my sewing bits and bobs - neat and tidy

I am going to pimp it up (notice the missing handle) but have started by simply sticking a magnetic strip to the inside to attach my metal bobbins to.

Notice the bobbins stuck onto the magnetic strip on the side of the box

My computder desktop – I spent hours and hours sorting out last year’s photos over the Christmas break and have diligently filed them away for easy access in the future.  I chose a calm, plain background for my neat new look.  Loving it.

Do you remember The Shiny Show?  I feel like I should give myself a shiny!
