Lost Little Puppy

I’m still feeling the effects of internet overload so lately I’ve moped about the craft room like a lost little puppy although I am taking the opportunity to make some progress on a few unfinished projects.   But there is hope.  My husband presented me something that just might enliven my knitting spirit!

I got hooked up with a handmade yarn swift.    Let me tell you how much of a pain it is to try to wind yarn while having someone hold it on their arms.  There is always a tangle, it always falls off the person’s arms, and it almost always winds incorrectly.  As he grew tired of my frustrations (read: moaning, whining, complaining), he trudged through the snow and out to the shed to whip this up based on plans I found on the internet sometime ago.  I’m certainly thankful for it! 

Next stop, winding up the yarn for a lace project I’ve waited forever to start.

Where It All Goes Down

I certainly do have craft room/studio envy when I see some of the lovely spaces on the blogs I encounter, but I try not to get caught up in that because I have a pretty decent space to work in and I’m very thankful for that!  Let’s take a look! 

First, I will introduce you to the latest addition to the space: my cutting table.  My husband built this for me after much of my begging, whining, and complaining about how I needed it to save my back.  He isn’t entirely happy with the result and wants to do it again (hence why it’s not painted), but I’m just glad I don’t have to go into super hunchback mode just to cut and pin some fabric.

Because that table is so huge in this small room I had to move my bookshelf to a different spot.  Yeah, that’s quite a collection.  Even Debbie strikes a pose for the photo!

Just a simple table is where I get my sewing and crafting done.

Beading and Yarn corner, my stone age tv and stand that houses paper and card supplies.

And that is where it all goes down folks.

Crafty People Roll in Crafty Circles: Part Two

Guess who has a new creative hobby? Well, thank goodness it’s not me this time! My husband has decided to take up the hobby of woodworking and this is his first project. How sweet is he that he made his first project (and hopefully the second one as well *crosses fingers*) something that I wanted. Now I just have to get back to earning that green thumb and plant something nice and pretty in those pots to show off the plant stand.
