Recently I discovered a wonderful flickr group called ‘Organised Collections‘. Inspired to put my own collection together I combined my linens (which are now filled with pattern piece markings) and my pebble and twig collection.
Each pebble and twig is special to me. To remember them, I have written where and when I picked it up on each one. The first twig I collected was on my first day of high school. Somehow I did not have a hair elastic and whilst sitting in register I reached for a stick, rolled my hair into a bun and carefully slid it through holding my hair in place for the rest of the day. I still have this stick and I love running my fingers over its now smooth surface.
