Is anyone else having a helluva time getting decent pictures of things lately?? Is anyone else freaked out that it gets pitch black at 4:30 PM? My parents live in a heavily wooded area so there is very little natural light that filters into the house. Add to that your typical Seattle winter weather and it’s a recipe for BLAH.

Anyway, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed these days with projects…too many unfinished objects + too many ideas churning away in my brain. (Oh yeah…and I gotta remember that I’m still looking for a job!) In an attempt to get myself on track, I decided some cleaning and organization was in order. I’ve never been too good at being minimalist so instead I generally aspire to cleverly organize.

Like all the DPNs I have lying around–they definitely needed a home.
needle roll
I found this lovely cotton lawn at a local fabric store sale. It reminds me so much of the lovely Liberty of London prints completely out of my price range. I was planning on using it in a quilt with some other green/pink/yellow fabrics but I needed an application with more instant gratification.

And so the needle roll….

So many pretty colors….

And just because I’m all about pretty colors and pretty organization, I could not resist this little tutorial.
bag dispenser
Because seriously…who couldn’t use a grocery bag dispenser with flaming raccoons on it? If you think I’m nuts you can get the back story here.

  1. The needle holder is very cute. And nice fabric combo on the grocery bag holder.

    I agree on the sunlight thing. I find it depressing.

  2. Great projects!

    I’m having the same problems with natural light. I’ve actually recruited a co-worker to help me photograph an FO today. What should we bill that to????

  3. Those look great! I’ve been meaning to make the plastic bag holder but I figure since I’m not living out on my own yet… It drives me crazy that it gets dark so early. I’ve kind of stopped blogging because of it! I promised another friend that I would blog though, since she admonished me for not blogging for so long!

  4. Love the fabrics on your needle roll 🙂
