As neat as a new pin(cushion)

Woohoo! I managed to tidy up my workroom before I went to bed last night so all I had to do today was mess it up again!

A tidy-ish table with plenty of space to work on. Last night you could not see the green cutting mats for the amount of stuff that I was creating on top of them! I did not take a before shot as it was so shamefully untidy!
Boxes of stock piling up and filling up too ready for the next enslaught of markets. Feels like I have not been to market for ages but it has only been one weekend off.
And now we have work in the workroom!

Look at these lovely goodies from Ruth at Ruth Designs a needle case and pin cushion. If you look closely you can just see my old pincushion which is a nearly finished knitted battenburg cake! With some tuition from my very talented Mother in law, who can knit anything, I made my first knitted creation. Unfortunately my patience with the knitting did not last long enough to make the marzipan to go around the edge! Never mind - my real pieces of battenburg always look like that too as the marzipan is the best bit!!
Also rather obvious is the distinct lack of pins in my lovely new pincushion - well it is far too lovely to be putting holes in it!
Off to hunt and gather some dinner now, it is a much more sensible time to do so tonight.
Take care all, til tomorrow
