Apparently I’m a hoarder of semi-useful things..

like craft books

like pens (and sometimes pencils too)

like stitch markers that revolve around snacks, sweets, and cute dough things (I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time perfecting the ideal slice of buttered toast & food with faces)

like knitting needles & notions (miss you Nancy Z 💕)

like makeup.. omfg like makeup, I am trying desperately to get it down to a core base, but I probably will forever have too many shades of the same nude lipstick.

– hardcore caboodle-ing since the 80’s –

 

this & that

This color 💕 that absolutely perfect dusty color, I love the blue jeans & scraped knees of this!

This pale bag worked up in that wonderfully starchy cotton fabric, 100% of the reason I hate pre-washing fabrics is loosing that stiffness. (Question: I also cut a dress out of this fabric ..would it be too over the top to coordinate with my tote by adding in another matching layer to my knitting power suit?)

This soak, a woolly perfumed blend of brambly hay, rose & eucalyptus.

This is finished, but that color still ..ooof

💕
