You've seen me mention it before in passing. I'm a little embarrassed about it, and yet I love it.
Welcome to the "Nest" that lives beside my place on the sofa.
This is where small bits of thread ends are (sometimes) gathered in a small bowl. I'll be honest though... More often, they are just left strewn where they fell.
It's a place that is constantly evolving, littered with design ideas, mis-starts, mis-fits and works in progress.
It's a place that beckons me to sit and pick up my scratched up needles (I crochet on ROCKS, for Pete's Sake), as long as it's not too messy, in which case, I'll happily ignore it for awhile (at least until visitors are coming, and my mid-western upbringing requires that I put it all away, and we can start again, tomorrow).
(Note to self: Remember to give S. those crochet books from the library...)
Today, I made 5 pebbles, some for my friend who sent the thread, and some to sell at Buena Creek Gardens:
It's getting to the "too messy" stage, right now, in fact, but I think I'll ignore it at least until tomorrow.
Might be able to get one more good day out of it before I have to force myself into cleaning mode.
And I'm wondering... Do you have one, too?
