Get It Together

I think everything is starting to come together here, and it is actually starting to look like people live here now. We got the living room painted and the art and tapestries up on the walls. Now I have decided that I want an accent wall which caused a little eye rolling by Rob, but I'm used to that ;) We painted the den Dignified Purple and hung some stuff on the walls. We still have some blank spaces that need filling, and I have an Ab Fab throw to knit that will look...absolutely fabulous in there! Today we will paint my craft room! You read right. I get a craft room all to myself! The furniture is all painted except for one desk, and the yarn has been organized and stored. Here is a little shot of most of my stash. I did not include yarn that has been bagged and set aside for projects.

Zoe couldn't resist climbing to the top of the pile. I think it is safe to say that I have a bunch of yarn, and I think it goes without saying that I should really start knitting more!! Eventually, Rob is going to build shelves for my yarn wall! Yay! They will go above the dresser that is holding the majority of my yarn now. The rest is in plastic bins in the closet. I would love to have the yarn more out in the open to inspire more knitting. Out of sight out of mind seems to be a very true statement when your yarn is all packed away. I think that the guilt of having so much yarn will end up prompting a lot of knitting or a stash sale haha! In my defense, it has been quite a while since I have purchased any yarn. I'll show you the last purchases next time. They are quite yummy :) Just for fun, before I get Rob off the couch (wow he snores loud) and start painting, here is a close up of something that makes Zoe all the more special...

Is that not the cutest thing ever!! Her spot is in the shape of a heart. There was no photoshopping done to this picture. She's really that cool!


My blog is back! It's been down and I haven't been able to post. Now it's back but it's nearly 1am, and I need to get in bed. I'll post soon though. G'night!
