Housekeeping and Progress

I’ve added another gallery to the “My Galleries” tab. Slow but sure, things are being transferred and updated. With spring in the air in both my homes, that inclination to renovate, renew and reinvent is definitely on the brain!

A new home, with new decorating possibilities… The mind boggles at all the options out there and of course, as an artist, I find I am brimming over with new ideas for patterns, art and a new book.

Breakfast Nook Home Office

I think its time that I have a “proper ” home office, one that isn’t the top of every piece of furniture in  my living room! If I can arrange for the floor to ceiling, wall to wall window, I shall. My breakfast nook “thing” started when I was really little. My Grandma had one and I’ve many fond memories or meals, reading and art projects done there. That and a walk-in pantry. Every good cook needs one of those…

Oh! Knitting… Forgot about that, smiles.

SPNF #8 flew off the hook. Here’s the finished photo:

SPNF #7 is still in the works. Being as this is a “plain” I find it a little less exciting to work on but its coming along nicely:

This and the 10th (and final!) are crochet so I’m expecting to have both done very soon. So pleased with this project / challenge that I set for myself. Its official, I have more FO’s in three months than I did all year last year. The writing irons in the fire took time and precedence but I’m finding the balance between both these particular vices.

The best part of this project?

One now empty box of yarn means no guilt about adding that skein of Sundara for a shawl at the end of this month – Crochet Month.
