Getting organized

I am working on a proper 'project' a 'grown up' one, which is taking me a few days - totally not like me as I get so impatient and want to get something done in a day, so that I can show and tell!

I am being toally self indulgent - and doing this just for me - to treasure!

In between painting and drying I have been getting organized - and bagging up my buttons into colour co-ordinations.

I am learning a great deal from blog hopping 'material girls' blogs.

I have been colour co-ordinating my ribbons

Alas these are not silk ribbons, but I can use these to practice with before I start silk embroidery

I have also received my wonderful book and goodies from Pat Winter Gatherings.   I have actually had them for a couple of weeks now and just can't put them down long enough to photograph - but I will soon.

Hmmm - first coat of paint should be dry - off to paint again.

Song Time........

For some reason I keep getting the old song.

"Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile."

going around in my brain today as.............

"Pack up those inches and get them on their way, and smile, smile, smile.
Into the postbox on a rainy day, but smile girl that's your style.
What's the use of worrying - if they are not their style,
Out into the rain I go
Hip hip hoorah - I may be quite a while!"
