TAST and other...

This is my sampler for TAST week46.


This stitch is fun to do, but I just cannot get it regular. Have to try again and again, because I do like it.


Speaking of TAST, Sharon is trying to set up a new challenge for new year. If you are interested, read her post and leave a comment to tell what you would like to do.




I'm so glad my GTS post has brought 10 comments already.


Regarding the weather, I'm like Sisah, I cannot believe it was winter until yesterday. On Sunday, the temperature dropped to -2°C, and this morning, at the same time, it was back to 12°C... I'm in the living room, with the French window open and the heating is off...


Regarding the lavender, well this plant is at home here. So no wonder it is that big. Although it is a English one, not a French one.


Thanks for the comments on the amaryllis. As it is a bulb I have purchased this year, no wonder it is that big. I've just started those of previous years, I don't know what they'll produce.


I've managed to make a "studio" from a spare bedroom. At the beginning, it was quite nice, with a lot of space to work on. But then, my daughters have changed flats, and left quite a lot of boxes in that room (in my bedroom too). Besides, I've been working on several textile projects recently, and did not take the time to put the fabrics away properly, so there was no space left on my table. And weird furry fabrics had appeared in my stash:



Since I need to find fabrics for XMas cards, it seemed the right time to do some cleaning. At the same time, I've reorganized the boxes my daughters left. I'm very pleased with myself and with the result. Plenty of free space, and fabrics back in their boxes. How long will that stay that way?

It is so nice to have a room of ones own. I hope your daughters get settled into their new flats and move their boxes there. It always dampers my creativity to have too much chaos in my room. Love seeing your kitty.

oh it is exactly as lisa writes. chaos in the working room: awful. when i start in a tidy room and make just some inchies, there you have the mess.

Ton atelier est mieux rangé que le mien, sauf que le mien c'est la salle à manger !!!

I wish my work space looked as tidy as yours. I adore that furry fabric you have in your stash :)

Really like your furry fabric! You did such a great job of organizing - do you want to come to my house? I could sure use some help!

Oh what a nice room! One day I will have a craft room to call my own!

Thank you for your comment on Angelina etc. She is what they call a lop-eared bunny, ears down instead of up. Well done with your TAST stitch - I gave up a bit on that one , it kept falling over and annoyed me too much to continue! Often if I leave difficult stitches for a bit they are easier when I try them again. As if the brain just works a bit on them all on its own. Strange.

What an inviting room. And you create such beautiful things in it.
