I'm Dreaming .......

...of a white Christmas 
......just like the ones I used to know....
 ... where the tree tops glisten! ....
  .....and children hear
 sleigh bells in the snow....
couldn't resist singing ..... :)

Thread sorting

My thread boxes were so mixed up it had become difficult to find the right thread at a glance! My system needed rearranging big time. So yesterday I spent the best part of 4 hrs doing just that. 

 I also replaced the rest of the card bobbins with plastic ones. 

Job done!
I always pack way to much stuff to workshops, 
I'm big 'just in case' person and it needs to change.
Next are all my beads and embellishments the jars look great on my studio shelves but having to pack them all into a big trolly bag is time consuming and its heavy! I have ordered new storage ...looking forward to sorting this out too!

A busy weekend

It was a busy weekend for me starting with a trip with my sister Theresa to the Hobbycraft show in SECC Glasgow, I don't normally go to the October one but I was running low on embellishments so had to force myself to go ;) we spent most of the day on the Hobbycraft hall getting lost in the bead and embellishment stalls. I was so absorbed I never took any pictures :( sorry
But arriving into the Craft Fair hall for the last half hour of the day this beautiful sight awaited us

On Saturday I did an Inchies workshop 
for some of the ladies from Airdrie Branch Embroiders Guild.
I didn't get any pictures again but the ladies did enjoy themselves and made some beautiful Inchies.

*Update 1st Nov Theresa managed to get a picture of her Christmas themed Inchies

On Sunday I was In Kelso again for another Inchie workshop .... I did take pictures and will do a separate post on this!
