Today I have decided to disclose my 1st trick that I use daily to help me with both keeping my house clean and the items being worked on, organised.
Have you ever been working on something and you have bits of stuff that you are of course "using" everywhere? Well that seems to be me daily, and with my little monster running around it is often quite dangerous having needles and scissors at grabbing height!
So I decided to go searching for a box to use that I can have all my bits in that I am "using"...none I found were very comfortable...so I came up with the idea of using a tray. I got my tray when I got married - it was one of our gifts - it only was used very rarely and was in the cupboard gathering dust...now I have repurposed it :)
It is very comfortable to keep on my lap while I sit on the couch and do my hand sewing, and then when the little monster is about, I can easily move everything out of the way and out of his reach.
This has to be the best idea I've had in years :)
Do you use something similar? If so, I'd love to hear about it!
