Blogging Buddies - good morning.... yesterday the computers went kaput and I didn't even get online until after 9:30am... so I was a bit behind in my daily stuff and just did not make it to the Blog to post. I wanted to thank you all for your super comments about Tuesday's post. The emails and comments where so nice and warm - I read many of them at lunch and it was a good lunchtime!! I have tried to get to all the emails - and will finish them up later on.. so do not despair.
I have had quite a few enquires about my stitching tree and all my little ornaments - I think I can distill the different questions down to a this question "Where do I keep my stitched Exchanges during the year?" As you know abut 98% of the small stitched things I have came from Stitching Friends and Exchanges I have participated in over the last few years. I took down the ST the other day and took some snaps of how I display many of them. Since I do not have a wonderful craft-room I make do with shelves in my second bedroom.
These are my shelves, I found them at different estate sales, and they work really well. About every other month or so I clean them off and dust everything. Here they are with everything removed and dusted.
I took everything off and got all my ornaments together and took this and the next two shots with them all on the bed...
- I can get most things up on the shelves - but many of my medium sized ornaments I keep in a basket on the bureau - so they are not as well displayed. Here are the shelves fully loaded from l to r......
and here they all are .....
I do enjoy seeing all of the pieces out looking so great!!! It takes about 30 to 40 minutes to take everything down dust things off and get it back together.
I have been stitching away on Cottages, but not enough to show any real progress... so I will hold off until Monday. There you go sports fans - thanks again for stopping by and for your kind comments!!!!! Do stop by again!
