As you can see every surface is clean and very tidy and that is because on Thursday last week, I had a friend coming round for a workshop so I had a tidy round and put all my clutter away where it should be but I also while doing that I 'tidied away' my magnetic pin holder!!! This is said pin holder.....
Until I had one I never knew just how much I needed one but now I've got one it gets used every day and is never far from me....that is til last Thursday!!! Since then I have searched every cupboard, fabric pile, drawer, shelf etc etc. In fact I had everyone else searching for me too.....It's too heavy to mislay easily and I HATE to lose anything especially something as much used as this is. Monday morning that big sister of mine popped round for coffee and she searched for me too but alas we couldn't find it so it was decided that as she was going into our fav fabric shop where I bought the pin holder from, on Tuesday, she would get me a new one....and of course more pins cos they were missing too!!!
Guess what I found first thing yesterday morning? Yes I've found it at last. And guess where it was hiding?.....
....can you see it? Nope neither could I but when I came to use my paper cutter for some strange reason it wouldn't sit level!! Yes you've guessed my MAGNETIC pin holder had stuck itself to the underside of the paper cutter!!! Needless to say I now have a VERY tidy sewing room and have wasted 4 days looking for it!!
And for those who didn't see my latest makes on my Facebook page these are what I've made this week and I shall me taking them with me on Saturday to the craft fair at the twins pre-school to hopefully sell...
They are, what I've called, Money Bunnies and are made of felt with a slot in the back for pennies to go....I know that not everyone likes to give chocolate for Easter so thought these would be a pretty alternative.
Before I go I must thank you all for the lovely comments last week. It really does help to have so many good blogging friends when times are difficult so thanks for getting me through a hard week.
If you leave me a little comment to let me know you've called in I will do my best to pay you a return visit.
