Watercolour Painting and New Stash!

 I finally have access to my desk after a few weeks of major sorting and clutter clearing!  I have nearly finished making a card and gift envelope for my brother-in-laws birthday tomorrow - on the desk is the envelope nearly done after some pre-breakfast additions this morning! Leaving it to the last minute has certainly upped the stress levels!

I also have some lovely new stash on my desk, courtesy of Julia's Forsaken Stash blog.  I just couldn't resist them and as I haven't purchased new stash for such a long time I really enjoyed getting these beauties through the post!

I am linking up with Julia over at WOYWW this week.

Sorting Yarn

I still can't get to my desk this week, but a crafty/woolly sort-out is taking place from my armchair! 
  My yarn baskets are stuffed to overflowing, and my studio is still full of boxes waiting to go back into the eaves. During this chaos and with the merest tap against the baskets, I've managed to send balls of wool rolling all around the limited floor space, channelling quite a few along the narrowest of gaps to hidden corners of the room.  It's one heck of a job to find them all and even now I suspect some are still lurking under my desk and cabinets!  
The plan now is to reorganise, rewind and hopefully reduce the quantity in each basket so it becomes less precarious and more manageable - definitely an 'in front of the TV' job!
