The tree is finally down and my stitching/reading area is back in place. I love Christmas but normal is good too. This is my stitching area. There are a few finishes for inspiration and a cross stitch clock to keep track of time. I have my scissors, a couple of homemade pincushions, a little bowl for floss bobbins, and my ORT jar. It is mostly empty because I start fresh at the beginning of the year.
This is side and birds eye view. These pictures are first in a monthly TUSAL (totally useless stitch-a-long) held by Daffycat. We put our old ratty threads (ORTs) from cross stitching in a jar and see how many we have as time goes on. On the other side, same chair, is where I read.
Actually my books are in the bookshelf in front of me. Most of them are still packed away in the garage in boxes. The house doesn’t have that library feel that we love so much but we make do!
