On this first February Tiny Needle Tuesday I'm more interested in putting stuff away than showing off any progress. My stitching stuff has been all over my soap making table for months and now that the latest baby sampler is done I need to reclaim it.
The problem was finding a place to put all my embroidery things. I used to keep it in the living area but that place is still a mess. I rearranged some things and tucked it all in on the sewing side of the room. I hope I can find it again.
It was hard taking the new scroll frame apart but I don't have anywhere to put it right now. I have a lot of projects that I would love to put on it but it's not the time.
The soap area got a good scrubbing. I took stock of everything I have and I have plenty of everything to get started again but.......gloves. I used up all my good ones during lockdown wiping and cleaning everything that came into the house. I have some heavy rubber gloves that are good for cleaning but not so good for being able to use your hands with any precision.
My new fancy kitchen sink got it's first load of really yucky stuff and it was scary. I've been tip toeing around it since we put it in trying to keep in stain and scratch free so this was a real test. I had a lot of oily jars and bottles that needed a good wash and everything survived including the sink which was a big relief.
I spent a very happy afternoon sorting and organizing all my soap supplies and everything is now where I can get to it. Now I just need the time and inclination to get to work again. Standing outside and mixing lye when it's 20 degrees outside is not my idea of a good time.
