Better desks and gardens
So usually by Friday night I'm a wee bit tired from the working week - but yet at the same time excited by the promise of the weekend and what may be created. However, at the moment Dudley's place is a mix of a dust bowl, grass seeds, turf, paint and pots. The garden has been neglected for what seems like quite a while. The 'studio' got a coat of paint last week. We were not sure of the colours (the gutter is a dark blue grey with corrugated roof). But we think with some red/plum accents maybe this new colour (pictured) will be ok. Anyone know what to paint large sandstone pots with to change their colour? So I spent time indoors organising my 'other' desk. Yes that's the little wooden box that stumped me. Mr Redhead did kindly construct it and now it's making those Etsy/Made it/orders - packages a little easier to organise. It's surprising how quickly you can get overwhelmed and swamped by fabric, findings, paper, buttons, etc and how these all need "Martha-ing", well maybe not that extreme - because we do have lives.
ps - obviously this (wooden box) supports the 4 draws, 3 cardboard boxes and 4 plastic containers already in use.
