Ok, maybe I do have one New Year's resolution: to keep my studio/sewing table more tidy. Why does this keep happening? Oh, and this was not even the worst point. I did not pull out the camera until I was half way through cleaning up.
Also, is it just me or does this happen to you too? Giant, gross, wadded up smoodge of embroidery floss. Such a pain. I swear I did not do this, and yet somehow, mysteriously I find one of these at the bottom of some box or basket or another at least once a year. And I cannot bring myself to throw it out. Because what if there was some sort of civilization-ending apocalyptic event, and I could no longer buy things because then all I would have left to work with would be the stuff in my house? Then boy would I be glad that I still had this thread snaggle. I could make some good end-times embroidery with this.
Yeah, I'm not even going to re-read over that last paragraph because I don't want to be able to itemize and count all the different kinds of crazy that it contains. Oh, and speaking of apocalyptic events, check out this commercial for the Run For Your Life 5k Zombie Obstacle Race. Yeah, you read that right. So awesome. I don't run, but I'd love to watch someone else run this. Oh, and also, I watched all these related links about it last night before bed and then I totally had zombie nightmares. My subconscious is so freakin' suggestible. Yeah, I'd definitely run if Zombies were chasing me. Most ruthless personal trainers ever.
Awesome scraps that I just can't throw away, but are literally too small to be useful in my scrap box. I've got to get around to making that ticker tape quilt one day.
