A Conflict of Interests

A Conflict of Interests

We have a huge table which thinks it is for dining from, but everyone knows it is really a cutting table and general sprawl area for costuming, quilting and all sorts of craft and stitching related stuff. We all know this is actually a craft table with prententions to being a dining table.. It is true although we do eat at it by far it is most gainfully employed for such constructive activities.

The weather is getting cooler here in OZ so I dragged out my wool to sort out and it quietly … sort of … took over the dining room table. I went into the other room to get yet another bag of wool as I have recently been donated another pile and after bustling around and scrummaging in cupboards I returned to the dining room to find Jerry quietly polishing his fiddle with it rested on top of my wool! He looked up at me and innocently said it provided the perfect cushioning!

I caught him in the act – smirk and all.

Well we decided no matter how careful he was being with the polish that we needed to divide the table down the middle. So now we have a his and hers end each.

Remember this image? Well the wool reduction campaign has not really progressed very far. I am going to do a little more scrumbling this season so lets hope it reduces a little!

Just a note to say the curtains are not really orange it’s a combination of the light shining through them and the camera.

    Jerry is a musician – and he has a book published – his site is on the side bar and my daughter works in a circus – and her site is in the side bar too! Proud Mum there

    I suppose it sounds quite romantic but it’s quite hard work

  2. my goodness
    you guys are quite the family of creative inspirations
    does jerry make fiddles?
    i’d like to hear more please
    thanks for all your incredible shares of resources
    i think retirement in my dream life is a moral imperative
    okay universe provide

  3. Guys are just like that, aren’t they?! Your stash of yarn looks about like mine. I was just gifted with a boxful of acrylic yarn but it’s good for making squares to donate, and I do that quite often. When you said scrumbling you caught my eye. I love freeform knit and crochet.
