light as a feather
I can see the details of the feather here and the carpet colour is pretty accurate too. The carpet looks great when I've just vacuumed but being totally plain, it shows every little crumb or tiny piece of paper or dropped wool. I'm thinking of buying a large rug which would actually cover most of the main area and would not be such a pain to keep clean. I could vacuum twice a day and still find bits the next morning. I really don't know where they all come from.
I've never been a neat freak but find that since being by myself, I am extra careful abut putting things away properly and tidying up after myself. If I don't do it, it doesn't get done. When I lived with son and DIL, the place was OK as there were three of us to do things. Here I'm it, as I know many bloggers also are.
I've tried it in several projects but didn't like it. It's been ripped out each of those times. At least three times, possibly four. I'm caught up recently in small projects which are quick and satisfying to finish. These are for DIL married to # 2 son. Hot off the needles and unblocked, they are another pair of Veyla fingerless gloves. That makes a hat for my son, gloves for DIL and his two small daughters. I've sent him an SMS asking what my eldest grandson might like. Then that will be the whole of that family.
The buttons are yet more from the hundreds my friend gave me from his mum. It's like a treasure trove and many of the buttons are beautiful. I find it hard to get buttons I like which are new now. Lincr0ft and Spitlite are not very helpful. The button shop in Newtown is great but I am no longer in walking distance of there so I tend to forget it.
