  1. Anitha I like to read this. I am also like you letting my crafty things all around and at times I used to think if I am not crafting or hooking my house will be neat and tidy. But those crafty things gives me a lot of pleasure and happiness apart apart from the family and other things.

  2. I have got to the stage where a good sort out is needed.
