My darling hubby is so thoughtful and considerate…guess what he bought me for Christmas this year???
Well, first off, let me tell you that he actually said that he’d like to see my yarn out where it can be seen! Is this a normal thing for a hubby of a fiberholic to say??? …and let me be clear: he wasn’t saying this so that he could monitor my habit either, lol. It just shows how much he really supports me in every way…I’m really such a very lucky girl! I have a little confession to make…he’s always, for the most part, been very thoughtful in this way, and I’m ashamed to say I haven’t really appreciated that fact as much as I could have in the past. For a little proof, I used to be a Mary Kay Consultant (for 11 years!) and one year he actually won the award of “Mr. Mary Kay: Most Supportive Hubby of the Year”! Yep…that’s my guy. I think I’m a little spoiled, lol! 😀
Anyway…back to the yarn.
Here’s the way my crafty things and yarns were all crammed into tubs and shoved into a closet at our previous house. Not convenient to find things, or for putting them away properly, and definitely not conducive for those spur of the moment crafty pursuits. Quite a bit of a mess, isn’t it?
When we moved, my big tubs of yarn ended up in the dark and dusty basement.
But now, happily, thanks to my darling of a guy, they reside in a little sitting room off of our bedroom, which houses our clothes closets and a nice chair for early morning or late night knitting. 🙂 I also have a table in there off to the side where I have my new YuDu (so excited about this not-so-little item…more on that to come soon!) and my sewing machine. Much better than the last set up for sure! I’ll be continuing to organize and set up my little space as time goes on…I’ll need to just play in there a little more so that I can get a feel of what really needs to be where…but I absolutely L-O-V-E to see all (well…almost, lol!) of my fibery goodies splashing color there in the corner and to walk by and pet them now and again, with deep sighs of contentment… So without further delay…
Here’s the official TAH-DAH!!!
Isn’t it just scrumdidly-umptious fabulous?! Doesn’t it make your mouth water? I’m very pleased with my little crafty sitting room so far, and will definitely post most pics when I get the rest of it organized to my liking. Until then…happy looming all!
**Edited to add: Hot off the press!!! We purchased the last one of these babies from Costco, but it might have been the very last one they owned in the entire company… much to the dismay of some of my looming buddies. BUT GUESS WHAT?! I just did a search and found pretty much the same thing (only with smaller cubes and I think it’s another brand) through Amazon at a rip-roaring deal! You really need to check this out before it’s all gone (make sure to take a look at the customer pics so that you get an accurate idea of the size of the cubes!)….just tell ’em I sent ya’! 😉
