Parkinson's Law

Now, some of you will have heard of Parkinson's Law - the one that says work expands to fill the available time - but I think there needs to be a Crafter's Law that says stash expands to fill the available space and then overflows.

When I acquired my "studio", as I pretentiously like to call it, (well, it's one end of the conservatory) I thought I would lose myself in all that delicious space.  Big, empty cupboards to fill, miles of lovely clear work surface and all that.  So why am I now restricted to a space no bigger than my cutting mat to work on and have nowhere to hide things any more?!

That's it, housework-allergic Squirrel is going to do something unheard of before (well, certainly in the last five years) I'M GOING TO TIDY UP and I shall be RUTHLESS!

I can feel a nervous twitch coming on .........

I have to clean today too!! My partner has been away since Tuesday so I've turned the living room into a craft room and rearranged the spare room where my craft things are. Today I have to get my craft things back into the spare room and make it look all tidy. I feel tired already :(
