one man's trash...

Spending more time at home has really made me feel the need for a proper clean up.
I've been busy cleaning, sorting, categorising and de-stashing my home all week. It's tedious but rewarding all at the same time.
I'm pleased to say that my spare room is looking and feeling more like a usable studio/office now and I know where everything is and everything almost has a place. The are plenty of bits and bobs that don't have a place though, so I have accumulated a huge pile of items which will be making their way to ebay soon - one man's trash is another man's treasure, as the old saying goes.

I'm still dibbling and dabbling in illustrator, and have decided to capture some of the stuff that's going on in my life, in illustration/pattern design form - it's a good way for me to practice.
Monday this week marked the third year of my journey into the blogosphere, so I've created a couple of patterns using the number three (click on pics to enlarge):

I thought I'd also give away three lots of my 'trash' to anyone out there who wants it (I'll post it anywhere in the world).
No. 1 - Giant monda kitty - he was a prototype, but I found him just a bit too big really

No. 2 - a huge pile of craft/scrapbooking papers and some paper flower embellishments

No. 3 - 4 balls of soft fluffy yarn. It's acrylic (not really my bag) and ever so soft. It's white with black flecks.

Please drop me a comment here if you'd like any of my trash. It would be helpful if you could tell me whether you'd like trash 1, 2 or 3. I'll pop back in on Monday 17th May and draw the trash recipients at random.

Your zero to hero course has been really good Monda! I've been enjoying looking at all your new designs - the 3's are particularly clever!

Trash 1 or 2 would be very welcome to come and live here.............!

Giant Monda kitty! I'm in love! Trash 2 would also be welcome at my house. Trash 3 would inevitably get stolen and eaten by my whippet, so maybe not.

Not commented before, but it's awesome to see you enjoying life on the outside since leaving your job - here's hoping the inspiration continues :) x

You are certainly putting your new found time to good use,really great designs and a well ordered home. I am quite envious. Trash 2 would be greatfully received here in my patch.

Hello there. How you could bear to part with kitty is beyond me, but I know my daughter would make a very good, very grateful adoptive Mummy!
