I've been starting to wonder whether my lack of inspiration to sew at the moment is in part due to having bits and pieces everywhere. My stitching stuff is partly here at the new place and some is still at the old house, so I am making a concerted effort this week to get organised.Look at this nice tidy corner of the room. My threads and fabric scraps are on hand to be grabbed whenever the mood takes me now, along with some magazines and folders full of articles which will hopefully inspire me to get creative again. Sadly the rest of the room still looks like a bombsite though, sigh.I'm sure things will get sorted in the end. I'm not going to let it all get me down. To help me keep positive I've made a little collection of some things that inspire me, this is what greets me as I walk in the front door everyday.Now it might not seem like much to most people but these few little things put a smile on my face every time I walk through the front door. My little Oyster catcher ornament (just because I love those gorgeous little birds), my orange kitty money box (this is where pockets gets emptied of any and all loose change which in turn ends up in the bank as part of holiday savings for next years trip) and a beautiful book that Dave bought me as a surprise after he found out how much I love this place on our holidays this year 'a year in the life of Buttermere'. My little slice of welcome home heaven.
