…well, for starters, I found the carpet in Steph’s bedroom. I went on holiday straight after the final Holiday Club Sunday Service- and then returned [in the dying Daewoo] the day before I was due in school. I have been so busy with lesson prep etc, that I ignored the mess. So the room was full of craft materials, sewing equipment, and all sorts of stuff I had not had time to sort properly. Last week, my hairdresser came round [she’s a ‘mobile hairdresser’, and comes round and cuts my hair in the bathroom] and she asked if I knew where she could get some fabric for a cushion cover.
“I have some you can have!” I said “No, honestly, I have loads, there is bound to be something appropriate in here” I flung open the bedroom door – and I could see her struggling to control her shocked expression. I suspect she thought she had fallen into an episode of Hoarders!
I have therefore sorted out and put away all the stuff – so now it is much tidier [and ready for Steph to come home in 10 days time]
I have also found my Nicki Trench Crochet book which I mislaid ages ago – it was upside down and back to front at the bottom of a stack of books. I had somehow looked past it in previous hunts.
Very pleased to have rediscovered this one.
And I have found a great use for loom bands. I acquired some more knitting needles last week [thanks, Sandie] and decided on Saturday evening that my needle collection needed sorting. A useful project to do whilst watching Dr Who! But I wanted to keep the needles more tidily organised.
I did not have many ‘regular’ elastic bands – so I dismantled a loom band bracelet – these bands are ideal for holding needles in pairs! It is my belief that loom bands were invented by a relative of James Dyson – they are clogging up vacuum cleaners the length and breadth of the land, and increasing sales of new models. [Actually, I suspect that the increase in sales a few weeks ago was because the EU has banned super-sucker cleaners!]
Never Mind! A tidy room is definitely worth something.
