Thanks for all the congrats on baby Disco. Gender TBA shortly (I know some of you are a little curious). You guys know how to make a girl smile. But don't think that I am using my present state as an excuse for not posting (what's a little exhaustion here and there?). Oh no, I have another excuse. Home renovations, improvements--or whatever you'd like to call it. Special K and Little Sir are constructing a craft space for me. So all of my materials are in a state of transition at the moment (or, if you'd like, you could call it chaos, that is what I am calling it).
I once crafted and stored things in my basement, a place where good projects went to die. This is the chaos in a craft space in a basement that is also a laundry room, storage area, office for a PhD student, guest room and lounge:
The lighting is really that bad. That quilt in the back has been waiting to be quilted for months now. I can't get to it. Seriously.
I also can't really get to the sewing machine either. But things are getting better. My new space is going to be bright and spacious, well as spacious as possible given the amount of crap I have to shove into the room.
It's also going to have wooden laminate flooring, which (I am told) is a big deal. Who am I to detract from workman's pride?
In the process of moving things, I have learned a few things about stashing. Firstly, putting things in boxes and bins that you can not see through will likely make you forget that you have stashed things in the first place. But when you find the stash you didn't know you had, it's truly an exciting thing.
I really love fabric, by the way. Secondly, I don't have as much yarn as I thought I did.
So, please excuse me as I try to make some headway in filling up my new shelves with my stash.
It's all going to fit. Totally.
