Goodmorning lovely ones, on yet another Wednesday morning and MAN, do I have STUFF on my mind… I’ll drag you right in…!
Here’s my desk and instead of paper, there’s fabric and Sashiko stitching today. Not that I turned my back on paper, oh no… this stitched patchwork will be the cover of my new-to-bind art journal for next year (Chronicles 2019) and I plan to integrate the little beads in the binding so the spine will be decorated too.
I though I might start early on this ’cause it is quite a time consuming task I put on myself…
… and there’s another task I can get my teeth into today, look what stands in our hallway.
Boxes! Boxes filled with books to sort out.
Remember we bought book cases last month? We used to have a HUGE book case but there’s no room for that anymore in this apartment… these three cases will have to do and we put them in the bedroom, but we could not put books in yet. There was a problem you see…
Not a logical place for a light switch now is it? We thought so in the first place, but with book cases against that wall there’s absolutely no way anymore to turn the light off and on. However, we came up with a solution.
We bought a lamp with a pull switch! My dad installed this yesterday so now I can start sorting out the books and fill the book shelves. No atelier-time for me today. Instead I will be sitting on the bed, or on the floor, looking through the books and deciding which ones to keep and which ones I will part with… wish me luck!
