Ultimately, it's a lovely thing indeed to unearth and re-consider stuff from the depths of wardrobes past and display, at long last, odd mismatched items of cutlery and tableware you had been collecting over many years.

.. and a long one at that.
A process that has been keeping me away from my workbench and from my online obligations..
what, with a long list of large-ish scale projects in the pipeline including a wedding dress I'm very excited about and a mural of sorts that'll see me swapping mediums for a month or so; the Easter Holidays from work should have served as well deserved chilll-time.. instead I was to-ing and fro-ing from home no1 to home no2, pestering people for liftage and straining my tendons trying to load suitcases in and out of cars..
putting everything in (relative) order is also headache-inducing.. one has to question the benefits of colour-co-ordinating clothing, test drawer capacities for the most convenient storage of silk scarves and gloves and reserve space for future acquisiton plans such as decent hatboxes.. all this just before or right after one has been trying really hard to understand the manual for a brand new washing machine (I refrained from photographing this just in time!) and hanging clothes that have, surprsingly enough, not only come out from the spinning demon unscathed, but also smelling lovely!
Here's a felt Totoro I did however make time for.. he now ranks as the second cutest thing in the house after CAT.
