We've been having a big clear up and clear out this weekend. It's frightening just how much crubbish one household can gather!!
We are lucky enough to have a little conservatory on the back of our house - only 8ft x 12ft - which inevitably gets buried very quickly under all manner of junk.
I keep my fabrics out here and things had got rather out of hand.....to say the very least!
Moogsdad has done a fab job of building some good accessible storage in our, now dry and clean, loft and we'd decided that I could store the bulk of my fabric up there. I'm keeping the essentials that I use very regularly downstairs in the conservatory - all the other 'I'll use it one day' stuff is now out of the way.
All those tiny scrappy bits that I was keeping 'just in case' have been bagged up (into two black bags!!!!) and freecycled to a lady who runs a preschool. Another bag of fabric that I will really never use - 'cos it's not nice! - is going to the charity shop.
It's amazing how different the whole house feels just knowing we have an extra useable space :)
At 6.30 this morning, when I couldn't sleep, it was the perfect place to sit with a cup of tea and listen to the wrens and blackbirds singing :)
At 8am I was joined by some more of Moogs clan.
Even her ladyship has given it her seal of approval!
I had fun making this bit mine :)
....and this is the drawer I love the most :)
This corner needs a bit more work but it'll be clear once the charity shop bits and pieces have gone.
During the clear out I came across this:
I'm never going to knit Herbert the Gardener Bear or Robin the Twitcher.....or even.....wait for it....Pearl the Knitter!!
Therefore, I'm giving it away - to the first person to leave a comment, on this post, saying yes please!!
Now I have to go and feed the babies croissants and get ready for a grand day out here!
We're swashing our buckles and swabbing our poop decks in readiness for boarding The Victory - avast m'hearties!!!!!!!
