Yesterday I got in the mood to rearrange a few things in my craft/sewing room, so I decided to take down all my Gentle Arts and Crescent Colours Threads off the pegboard. For some reason, I just wanted a change of pace. In place of all those threads, I dug into my storage bins that I had a lot(but not all) of my craft patterns in and decided that if I had them hanging out in plain view, I'd possibly(hopefully) be tempted to actually make them!! Ha Well, at least that's the plan! I hung them according to seasons mostly and now I can see what I've been hiding from myself!! LOL
For those of you who know me too well, I would actually need a very long, gigantic wall to hold all of my patterns I've accumulated over the yrs., but these are the ones I actually want to work on in the near future. Think I have enough to get me started?? (Hey, I know some of you have way more than I do)~tee hee
I did end up leaving my Weeks Dye Works threads out for now, w/plans to maybe use the smaller pegboard for sewing/quilting patterns. Haven't made up my mind yet, but this is how the other side looks.
I ended up putting all the overdyed threads on big round rings in alphabetical order, so I could easily find a certain color if needed. (I filled two big rings w/just GAST alone)!
I'm hoping this will keep me satisfied for awhile, however, I'm not sure what to do w/all the leftover hooks. I know what you're thinking, I better keep them in case I change my mind again! :))
Onto another book review..........Bethany House Publishers sent me my choice of another FREE book in exchange for an honest review, so here goes:
This one is called "Inescapable" by Nancy Mehl and let me just say that it kept my full attention from the first chapter to the last. I'm not a big fan of books written in first person, but I'll make an exception w/this book. It was full of mystery, a sweet romance, mother/daughter relationships and a LOT of learning to forgive.
The characters were believable, lovable, and sometimes unstoppable in their quest to find the truth. After having read many Amish fiction books, it was refreshing to learn more about the Mennonite people. This book is a must read! I highly recommend it!!
That's it for now! Thanks for stopping by!!
