a place for things

This little can is a place for dry erase markers, highlighters, and some water base markers for creating embroidery patterns. I used a graphic from an old embroidery magazine my sister A gave me. The middle two panes shown above show a housewife working on some sewing or embroidery. The side panes show her immaculate house. :)

I have plenty of projects going but nothing finished at the moment. I am also working on a rather large embroidery project. It is not as big as the 'epic' that Threeundertwo at Lit and Laundry is making but to me it definitely feels like a mini-series. I am thinking that I might share photos of it once a week or so (like Threeundertwo does with her epic) to help encourage myself to persevere.


  1. Very creative. Cute, cute! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. The decorated cans I keep on my work desk are decorated with Elvis Presley fabric! I'd love to see the progression of your embroidery bit by bit! (That is some project Threeundertwo has taken on!)

  3. Very clever including the graphic of the orderly home!!! I have been inspired by you and reusing cans everywhere! Still need to make one for my eyeglasses.

    PS my girls have been watching the All Creatures series with their grandparents. My husband grew up with that series!
