Storing Completed Crochet until Collection Week


This will be a short post.

I’m just here to give you a tip.

Show you an elephant.

And go home.

Oh, wait, I already am home.

Well, go take a nap, then.  Smile

The Tip

If you store finished crocheted items (or knit or any other yarn art), toss a scented dryer sheet in your storage box. I picked up this tip from somewhere else, and I’ve been using it for about a year.

Pencil Cases

Beyond the hope of keeping buggies at bay, I like the fresh scent when I open the storage shoeboxes to tuck in another creation.

It keeps the mildewy, musty, gee-what-died-under-the-She-Shed smells at bay.

The Elephant

This shirt should probably get his own post, but for now, I don’t think he’ll mind sharing space with the crochet tip.

Oh, and he reminds me (because he’s on fabric) to be careful putting dryer sheets in boxes with fabric.

The stuff that makes dryer sheets work and smell pretty may stain dry fabric. I haven’t had a problem with that on yarn, but if you worry, you could put a paper towel between the sheet and the creation.

And now … the elephant:


And he’s for sale! 

Purchase the t-shirt and other Samaritan’s Purse/Operation Christmas Child apparel here.  As of this printing, the t-shirt is only $7 suggested donation. That’s a bargain, I’ll tell ya!

And nope, it’s not an affiliate link, just a love link.  <3

Don’t you just love that elephant?

And the Nap

You don’t reallllly want to see a picture of me napping, do you?

Yes, Mary in Colorado, you probably do, but let’s just say I don’t want to post a pic of me napping.

That would be one strange selfie. I don’t think my camera timer can be set that far ahead. Wait! What am I even thinking about it for???  Night-night! I mean, nap-nap!
