Glow Threads

I bought a new toy!! This is glow in the dark thread which you can get from the DMC range. I was surprised something so specialised was only $0.90 per skein. I have a little idea for this but I also think it has lots of potential to be used with some of my electronic LED designs as well.

I received a couple of my packages this week, but nothing too exciting. My green and blue LEDs are here and they're really pretty colours. It is amazing that we can now make so many different colours of LEDs depending on the active element inside the little globe. They are ingenious little gadgets.

I've been pretty busy in the past week and this is why. This is my shed which looks a hundred times more organised and tidy. I could hardly move in there a couple of weeks ago. After a couple of weeks cleaning up I decided it was time to get stuck into a bit more construction and get some of the final things I needed for organisation. My awesome dad helped me finish the interior wall (at the back) and build the metal cabinet, then we put up the peg board (right) and the shelf and workbench (left). Lots of tidying later and I have a new workshop so I can go outside to do anything messy!!

After 4 days of working on cleaning up and building in the shed it took me a couple of days to recover, but I'm ready for this weekend and to get some more stitching done!
