Limited space

For the last days (weeks) the space of my studio and living room has grown smaller day-by-day because I’ve been preparing for my crafting exhibition/examination. Books, notes, photocopies, clothes, samples and patterns all over the place. At last I hardly could find an empty place at my desk! My living room has become a blend between a second-hand shop and a dump.

Yesterday I brought everything to the Teachers College and put up my exhibition – and today I went for my examination, and YES I passed, so I’m now officially a crafting teacher!

I’ve now brought everything back home again and once more the house looks a mess. But tonight I’ve decided to enjoy a cup of tea and maybe even a crimi at TV. No books, no revision, no tasks, no organizing knitting patterns., No obligations! It’ll have to wait until tomorrow…

    Oh, Hanne, congratulations! And enjoy your evening and relaxation.

    It’s amazing, isn’t it, how things and work can take over our lives and space! There are times when I, too, have things spread all throughout my apartment and I feel like I’m living in a disaster area! It always feels so good when the time finally comes that it can be put away again.

    I intended to comment on a previous post—-the one with the new books. I love Cloth Paper Scissors…….it is so rich with ideas and inspirations. It would be hard to resist the temptation to sit down with these new treasures and get lost in them for awhile!

    Congratulations again. I know you have more coming up, but for now sit back and enjoy this accomplishment!
