Getting Organised

I have just finished making this little basket for my neighbours who have invited us over this evening. OK, it's for "her" not "him" but I think she'll like it. I like it and now want to make ten more of course - for me, for you, for everyone.

I used this great tutorial. I actually saw the basket made up and holding notions in my local haberdashers and they gave me the link. I want one for a desk tidier. For a tidier desk.

In other news... I have decided to get my butt into gear and become organised. A well-oiled, efficient, life machine. And this site is helping me. Along with this book (had for ages, it's great) and hopefully this book too (just arrived from Amazon yesterday. Not translated into English which is a crying shame, all of her books are fab).

Right must go and tick off my "write blog post" task and then get on with the rest of today's list of things to do...

Je viens de terminer ce petit panier. Je l'adore il est mignon et utile... et pour mes voisins, chez qui on dîne ce soir, et donc je vais devoir en faire un autre pour moi (ou quelques autres car je suis sûre que tout le monde aimerait en avoir un). J'ai utilisé cette "tuto" (?) pour le faire. Elle est en anglais mais il y a des images et la construction est assez simple à comprendre.

Sinon: Il faut absolument que je devienne quelqu'un d'organisée - efficace, occupée, canalisée... et je m'y prends avec un peu d'aide: ce livre (je découvre qu'il est traduit en français) ce site-web (en anglais mais hyper-simple) et ce livre (je ne l'ai pas encore lu mais j'aime beaucoup cet auteur et ses idées).

Bref... je n'ai pas le temps de traîner ici, faut que je continue avec ma liste... ciao


  1. you know that a desk tidier just leaves space on the desk for more mess, right?

  2. Your basket is so cute!!

  3. Or just more shiny, dust-free tidiness! Chaos knows chaos?

    Ayu, thank you so much for coming to look at my basket, from your pattern! If it's cute it's your cuteness! If it's green that's me!

  4. Chaos always wins.

    If you *need* a desk tidier, it's automatically not going to work!

  5. after all that is said though... Chaos does say it's a cute basket :)
