Finding Treasures

This week I have been trying to get on with a job which I keep putting off but really is necessary. I very much need to sort out our loft so that we can finally get on with a much needed extension but the job can be a bit daunting. I’ve already cleared out alot of things that were no longer needed so the next job is trying to get what’s left a little better organised.

Basically I am left with a pile of Christmas decorations, a pile of ski equipment, a pile of knitting and sewing supplies and a pile containing various other items I cannot part with. I decided to go through all my stitchery goodies first. This has uncovered all kinds of forgotten treasures, the most interesting of which were…

This kit to make a necklace with all kinds of different beads.

Maybe one day I’ll sit down and make it but I don’t even remember buying it so it was a total surprise find!!

Then I came across my shoes from my long ago wedding day, along with the silk flowers from my bouquet and some fabric from my wedding dress.

With my new found love of machine embroidery, these were not only treasure but totally full of inspiration and potential projects for certain will be coming from this direction.

Two unfinished projects very much caught my attention.

So there we go I now have at least 4 more projects, some forgotten and others new, whizzing round in my head with all the others.
