This is sort of a keepsake piece. The thimble on the right belonged to my Grammie, and the one on the left we think may have belonged to her step-grandmother: the lady who taught her to quilt and knit. It was found among Grammie's sewing things so my Mum took it for me. I don't use thimbles, but I thought it would be nice to have them out somewhere that I can see them. Perhaps one day I will find a thimble I like using, and then later on it can join the others.
I am making good progress on my 'Bakery' piece by Country Cottage Needleworks. This piece is part of my Stitch From Stash challenge. I might be done in January, but I'm not going to say for sure. I would still like to get an ornament stitched before the end of the month so this might take a back seat for a while.
On the organizing front (other than the basement!) I did a quickie make over to our front entry. In the winter we need a space where the kids can access their hats, mitts and scarves without too much trouble. There is no room in the closet and there is not really any spot for any kind of storage except beside the door. Previously I had this iron record stand there and the kids used it for their shoes in the summer. Since the snow started flying I had to temporarily put these hot pink bins on it. Yes, I know it looks terrible!
I would eventually like to paint it white so it goes better with the rest of the furniture in the house, but for now it's just fine.
How do you corral all those winter bits?
