Yes, right now my room still looks like an absolute mess. However, I can see what this room will be once I get these large pieces of furniture out of the way. Right now I have the cabinet I showed you last posted filled an organized, I am amazed how much fits in there. The cardboard tube organizer that I used in a maker video for my public library turned out really well so I am using it on top to keep supplies visible.
I did have to buy a second cubby in a different size and configuration that you can see next to the original. I put a storage rack that was mostly empty into the corner to hold a combination of mom’s kits and some of my kits. I am using the open blocking mats as shelf liners. You can see part of one of the dressers I need to destash in the near future, with a lamp and a sock project on it.
I am not completely finished getting everything sorted and organized, however I have made a ton of progress. There is still a bin I need to sort through, however I have also started displaying some yarn for inspiration. I believe that this is the first time ever that a large majority of my crafts have been entirely in one place that I am likely to frequent. I still have items downstairs however it is cold, and since I live right by the woods I am concerned I might have another dang mouse. Most of mom’s acrylic yarn is down there also.
During all of this frenzy of organization I have found many things that I forgot were around, or simply did not know where they were. There is a pair of Christmas stockings that I need to sew the trim on, Mom made the stockings and never finished them. Mom had a ton of plastic canvas kits that she wanted to make, when I feel up to it I am going to have to sort through those. The one that brought a tear to my eye, though I’m telling myself it might have been dust, is the alpaca yarn squares that I wove and mom edged for me. We were going to make a vest out of them, however the project was abandoned well before finishing them. I am going to make a table runner out of them to remember her by, I just need to find the right yarn to use to attach them together.
*whisper* I also found the organizer in which I stashed all of my DPNs, I knew I had DPNs!*whisper*
I have also found out that I can do more crafting than I thought I could if I hold my wrist carefully. I’ll make a post about progress in crafts later. Until then!
