A room with a view

On Wednesday I drove into downtown Ottawa for a meeting at the Westin Hotel.  The Westin has a great location downtown right beside the Rideau Center, the Rideau Canal and the Parliament buildings.  Combine the location with a great sunset and we had a beautiful view of the Parliament buildings and the Chateau Laurier.

This weekend I cleaned out my closets trying to get rid of some junk.  I'm planning on a visit to the Salvation Army drop off box tomorrow afternoon.  The drop off area tends to be full on the weekends so I'm waiting until they've had time to clean out what's been left on the weekend.  Last time, I opened the drop box and a box of records fell out on top of me.   So I'll wait until its safe.

I'm still working on organizing my tatting junk.  I need to pick up a few more photo albums for my odds and ends.  No tatting stuff is being shared with the Salvation Army.

Long time no blog...

I haven't been a very active blogger over the last year. It's a long story. I think of things to share and then never actually blog. Truly, I blame pinterest. I'm a Visual person and that site is seriously addictive.

I'm currently on an organization kick. I get motivated to reorganize in the summers. Its challenging due to lack of storage space in my house. I've found tips on you-tube but when it comes to tatting there's not a lot of help.
I have a lot of tatted samples of patterns not yet completed or written out. So to try to conquer my brimming green bag of tatted things, I purchased a small album from the dollar tree. If the album works out I will purchase a few more.
Tatting tools and stuff seem to appear magically in the strangest places in my house. I wonder if I'm the only one with this issue?
