Well, missing…. no action! As you could have guessed, I caught the flu from my parents. And sure enough like they say it lasted about ten days.
I did have to force myself to get dressed and go out to the post office one day and I saw a garage sale sign. Remember, I’ve promised myself not to go to any more sales? It’s my car’s fault! It just turned right down that street! Anyway, as usual~I’m glad I did! I found the best cabinets for my hooking room. One is 60 inches long. The other 36 inches. They are both 40” high. And they have doors on them! But this created a much bigger problem once inside the house. Remember we live in a tiny little 1300 square foot bungalow. That doesn’t leave any room for new any thing!!! Just listen to what these cabinets causes us to have to move. (We actually gave away some furniture)
First, there was a huge trestle dining table and bench in the craft room. Pushed up against the wall. It had the TV, two printers and my sewing machine on it. Problem was, it was always so piled up with Stuff that you couldn’t even see the table. Let alone work on it!
So I decided that table should go to the dining room! BUT, we already have a dining table and four chairs in there. AND a love seat, wing back chair and a TV cabinet. See what I mean now about not bringing any more stuff in this little house? Moved the loveseat to the living room. (Gave the one that was in that room to our son) Moved the wingback chair to my hooking room. Let’s see… living room coffee table to the basement. Cedar chest in it’s place. See what a mess I caused??? All because I stopped at a stupid garage sale and bought two simple cabinets!!!
But oh, the rewards! Here is the room now. Ready for a few friends to sit and hook with me! All of the wool I’m keeping is in the new cabinets. Oh, and that little loveseat was in the basement! I plan on making a slipcover for it soon. I’ll also have to make new curtains!
That little Shabby Sheep mat is STILL on the frame. I have totally lost interest in it! I need a new, big project now. I’ve been sketching some patterns. Now to commit. Now that I have my hooking room just the way I want it hopefully I’ll settle down and start hooking again. No more sales~hooking!
And dyeing wool! My little shop is Etsy doing quite well. Thanks to everyone for buying my wool and taking a look at my shop! I plan on dyeing some wool this weekend. Some rich fall colors. I can hardly wait for fall!
I have something BIG happening tomorrow night!!! I’ll let you know about it Saturday!!! I’ll even show you!!!
Until then, have a great Friday!
