I thought I would put my recent botanical renderings to practical use and made a label for my skein of linen yarn--a flax bouquet on one side and the other holds the pertinent info like yardage, etc.
I keep all of my plant fiber skeins in this basket I bought a decade ago at a fiber show.
When I did put the skein in the basket,
I was irritated to notice all of the little spider webs around the area.
I got out a dust cloth and began scooping them out from under the basket.
I terminated several little spiders.
And then I had the brainstorm to look at the bottom of the basket!
Yikes! See all of the egg sacs?!
Needless to say, I swiped them away after a good spraying and then vacuumed the whole thing.
I'm glad to say I didn't find any little spiders on the inside of the basket but cleaned it anyway!
Then I found mama-she was small as far as spiders go but I wiped her out, too.
See my favorite spray?
I put it to good use in the whole area.
After all of the drama, I then dusted and polished the whole area
(antique sewing machine and wooden sewing cabinet)
which was a good thing to do since dusting and polishing is usually last on my chore list!
