I read the book Homespun Style by Selina Lake. It is a book about decorating with crafty things. She advocates displaying crafting tools and so forth and even displaying yarn. I had no idea I was sitting on a gold mine of decorating goodness. I have been inspired and along with my mom coming to help me after my surgery in a few weeks have rearranged and cleaned so I can display more of my things in the public areas of my house. This will mean the dogs will be sleeping in the basement but going into the warmer months I think they will like that better anyways. One of the things I did was move most of my drop spindle collection into the living room from my bedroom:
There are more but 5 have their own stand, some are mid-project and some are supported. I am doing other things but they aren’t finished yet as I was working on getting the dog crates down into the basement. Only my one dog uses one but there might be a time I need the giant one so I have it down there too.
I am also working on 2 stash-busting giant granny square afghans. These are for the kids when they are on the couch in the mornings before the house warms up. I just have the one blanket and two kids which has been a problem. I hope to reduce the stash and solve the squabbles in the mornings.
Life is good.
