I told you last week about my cross stitching adventure and finding my OttLite K94CP3 3-in-1 Adjustable-Height Craft Floor Lamp with Magnifier and Clip. Read that here if you missed it. I didn’t get a ton of time to stitch over the week but I did make a little progress.
Over nap time one day I took my bucket of floss and started organizing it. I’ve tried way after way after way to organize floss over my lifetime and have never really come to a way that I love. This time around I am trying Floss-A-Way Organizer bags. I’ve tried the little cards and rewinding the floss onto the cards (what a pain) and that never worked for me. I’m hoping these little bags work. I was able to get through all of the thread that I bought but I need to get more bags and organize my old floss too.
Isn’t it all nice and neat looking much better?
I got two sets of binder rings. One set has what I need to finish the project that I’m currently working on and the other has all of the extras.
I pulled out the basket that I bought at a flea market this summer, (remember the one with all the axes?) Here’s the post I did when I told you about fixing up the basket. Well the basket is now employed as my cross stitch basket!! I figure, I can only buy what will still fit in the basket. That’s reasonable right?
Happily there is a place in the living room for the basket, right on top of the Walnut, cedar lined, cabinet I bought on the garage sale on the way to the Quilt Festival in Spring Grove.
This is right next to my light, which is right next to my chair. I have no excuse not to cross stitch when I’m in the living room….all the supplies are right there.
Friday night I did indulge in a little cross stitch time. I didn’t get a lot done though. Netflix ads have been enticing me to watch “The Crown”…and I fell for it hook, line and sinker. I watched two episodes and loved it. The only problem…I want to watch all of it and not miss it. That meant very little cross stitch work got done but that’s okay. I enjoyed myself either way.
Here it is Friday night again…I think I’ll spend it the same way I did last week..cross stitching with The Crown.
