Firstly Motherly Devotion is recovering well from its coffee staining. I need to give another soaking and look at the threads but I think it's getting there
I have since been out to get some new boxes for my stitching to protect it from these kind of mishaps and to my good luck found a load of boxes in my local cheap department shop on sale.
These are going to be my current box which previously was a bag behind the sofa. The only thing is the snap frame doesn't fit but I think I'll just take the fabric off the frame when I'm not stitching for piece of mind. The big one was only a pound and the little box which will stop my bits and bobs heading to the bottom was 20p!!!! Bargain of the century!
Here it is in working order it nicely nestles on the back of the sofa next to me for easy access while stitching!
So all in all a successful mission and I'm one organised and happy bunny.
I did make a start on the free Christmas baubles from my crazy Jan pile. However I'm thinking that this might be an abandoned project.
Here's where it was in Jan:
I have made a start on my next rotation so watch this space. I'm hoping to snatch a few more minutes in front of the Olympics!!
