A Little Accountability Please

Now that we are fully moved in, I thought I would show you a little peak at my craft room. I have always wanted an IKEA Expedit storage system for my bits and pieces, but haven't been able to get one as yet. They say 'necessity is the mother of invention' so I got to thinking and came up with this...

This is my storage cube, made from 3 bookcases stacked on top of each other :) This will do the trick until I can buy my Expedit!

Now for the accountability. Its been a while since I've sewn anything (due to shifting house) and I have lost my groove a bit. To get back on track, I have set myself a challenge to finish this.

The 'Festive Charm Table Runner' is created by Ruth Buchanan and is in the latest issue of Australian Country Threads magazine Vol.8 No.12. I will be making mine using Moda - Cranberry Wishes fabric (that Katherine gave to me for my birthday in July). Ruth has used the 'Peace on Earth' range for hers. I shall fight procrastination and get it done - and have lots of fun doing it too :)
 
Happy Birthday to my Big Brother - 'Bradley Anderson Norris' for tomorrow (9th October). Love ya Bro :)
 
With Love

It was seniors week this week in Victoria with free rail over 5 days. So off I went with a friend to IKEA, love that shop in Richmond and so easy to get to from the Southern Cross station on the Box Hill tram. Lunch was great, love the food, and the fabrics, and ideas. Hope you get your Exepedit soon. The boxes are inventive.

It's lovely to know that Festive Charm appealed to you - I'm looking forward to seeing your version (does that help motivate you and deter procrastination??!!)

Cheers

Oooh, we've got a great big Ikea nearby, I might have to go and have a peek. I love your storage solution ... I wonder if it would fit in my cupboard (??). Can't wait to see the table runner when it's done :o).
