I'm astounded at how many beautiful Work in Progress pictures appear in blogs each Friday. Lovely fabrics, neat piles, orderliness. Reality here is somewhat more chaotic. So in the spirit of honesty, here's what our dining table looked like late on Friday night (hence the bad lighting).
Scattered about are:
Kids cooking swap recipe cards
Half completed stuffed robot
Bitty Booties for baby shower
Leftover template and fabrics from butterfly mobile
Amazingly, we ate lunch at the very same table today (but it did take me half an hour to clear it). I'm one of those people who likes to have what they want to use to hand. I'm terrible about putting things back in their proper places (if they are lucky enough to HAVE proper places).
I so envy folks with 'studios', but the truth is if I had one it would also be messy. It drives me nuts having to spend precious time locating the scissors, glue, thing I had in my hand a second ago but has now disappeared. I would give good money for a tidy and organized gene. If anyone has a spare please let me know.
