I also thought I would share this tip with you...when I sew, I always keep a little container handy to put scraps and threads in as they accumulate. Keeps them off the floor (well, some end up there...), and it is easy to empty every so often. And portable - you can put it wherever you are sewing.
My long suffering and ill fated knitting also seems to be settling down now - after three attempts at making something, finally I decided on something simple and am hoping for the best. Hopefully before winter ends I will have a new cardigan jacket. If not, I am not sure there will be a fourth attempt :)
Wishing you all a great week ahead, wherever you are...
