You say hoarding, I say collectingI like to think that my hoarding has a much better name...yes it's a COLLECTION!
This goes back a long way back to (struggling) uni student days, sewing for myself and trying to make ends meet . Despite this, I decided that there was one offer I couldn't pass up. It encompassed my 3 loves - books, sewing and stationery shops (or in this case the local newsagent). Each week I'd have to find the princely sum of $1.75, head off to the newsagency on Bondi Road and pick up my 'order'...oh joy...oh bliss...
What was this miraculous offer...
...my collection of Busy Needles - all the way from 1-98. All read, some ideas used, mostly just poured over with the possibilities of 'one day...'
And just to prove that I have hoarded for a while, here's a similar collection of Handmade (I never did find issue 1)
The Barbie issue in the background has been well used. One memorable day I spent the whole day sewing denim overalls for Barbie - the house and 4 little children ran wild...and I didn't care - I just needed to sew - but that a story for another day!
