And this is where the true meaning of Cinderella comes into play.
We all know that she went to the ball, met her prince, and lived happily ever after.
What we rarely consider is, that most of her time, until that moment, was spent cleaning, clearing and generally working her way through the daily house-keeping chores.
SO, before I could even begin to start on doing the 'real' task of the afternoon, I had to find my inner Cinderella, and do the chores.
Here are some 'before' and 'after pictures.
The table around my sewing-machine
... yes ... only one picture on this one. I didn't have it in me to disturb a sleeping kitty :-)
And then, just because I was at it anyway. The yarn-stash (with assorted tributaries):
Still stuffed to overflowing, but at least I can now see what is there!
(and yes, I'll show you picture/s of the completely finished Passacaglia. Eventually. Once the binding has been hand-sewn down. Until then, it looks more-or-less like it has done in previous pictures of the thing).
