Remains of Italy to be seen: there was a little craft store in the town, and I bought two packages of brightly coloured wool: one with greens and one with r eds. The dark blue felt/dumfling balls are from years ago, they are our dogs' favourite toys, but because the felting has been done with water and soap (and a bit carelessly...) they have niches here and there. The thread is out, because I sewed some crevises from the blue balls before starting to work on them. So I have been using a needle to continue the felting (dumfling?) and get the balls to be more intact and round. The red-orange one is finished and the needle is ready for the next one. The brochure is from a jazz concert I went to in Italy, and the colourful foam plastic things were made by the daughter of the house where I stayed... still wondering what to do with them! Even the coins are from the trip...the fun thing about euros is that each country has their own pictures on the coins, so these are waiting for my husband to check if we already have them:)
Actually my tidying-up process today will also have to reach underneath the table, here is the not-so-lovely view from the room towards the other side of my "desk". We have the house full of guests on Sunday, and we plan to pretend this is not a messy place to live :) ---my husband kindly suggested he'd carry all my drawers and shoeboxes into the garage for the day, I guess he's taking bundles of his books and comics too. This house is too small for two hoarders!
