What Is Essential?

Lately I have been pondering the question:


'What is essential in my sewing space?'


The current situation is that even though I could use the stuff that's in my sewing room I can't really work in there without it becoming a huge mess very quickly.

Every time I try to focus on this question I feel overwhelmed and I don't really know the answers.

What is essential in my sewing room?

Two Uses Tuesday Linky Party
Two Uses Tuesday is LIVE until Friday at 11pm EST (3am  Saturday UTC).

We've had the most gorgeous sunny weekend here in Western Australia and we spent a lot of time in the garden.

We planted some lovely natives - I hope we haven't got them in the ground too late for the spring rains - the most spectacular of which is Kennedia nigricans, a native pea which has flowers of yellow and black, a true black too, not a blue variant. I can't wait for it to flower so I can show you all.

I guess most of you are entering into autumn weather and are starting to see lots of pretty fall colours and although I'm not decorating for fall I've rounded up some great pumpkin crafts as inspiration for your fall decor.  Let me know in the comments what season it is in your part of the world.


Why Take The Time?

Sometimes you come across someone who wants to learn and has an aptitude for what they want to learn.


When someone like that asks for help and it's a subject I know a bit about, it's nearly impossible for me not to jump in and do my best to share what I know.

Sharing knowledge is one of life's great pleasures. Sharing that knowledge with someone who is hungry to learn is like ambrosia - it's exciting and fun and gives you warm fuzzies. Well it does for me anyway, maybe I'm just weird.

18 Pumpkin Crafts And Decorations

Here in Australia Halloween isn't much of an event and pumpkin decorations are mostly seen as store displays if at all.

Deciding How To Declutter A Collection

How to make decluttering decisions when it comes to collections.
I've been trying to figure out how to make decluttering decisions when it comes to my collections.

It's not easy to make the keep or not decisions just by looking at a collection. After all, each item was selected with the collection in mind and so it fits in it's own way.

The Best Spider Web Removal Tool

With the arrival of the warmer weather and sunshine I've been bit by the spring cleaning bug. I want to wash my walls and clean the curtains and all those sorts of crazy things.
