I've been working for 2 days and many hours on re-claiming my "office" or craft room. I wonder if this sense of emergency stemmed from hubby and I watching a marathon of the show "Hoarders". Do you have those shows where YOU live?
Here in the USA a television film crew follows a situation where someone who hoards things is intervened at the urging of concerned family members. The TV crew sends in people who specialize in helping those who are living in these homes filled to the brim with things they can't seem to get rid of.
After watching that show I decided to work on my problem room. It's been kind of like digging for treasure! I've found a silver dollar and lots of cash in old letters and envelopes. I also found my Niddy Noddy for my spinning. And even a swift for winding yarn that my mom had for some unknown reason.
I can also blame my blog friend Suz, from Suz Place as she recently totally organized and fixed up her craft studio and it's so awesome and pretty and organized! And so.. I've been working on my own space and hopefully someday soon it will be photo-worthy.
Here is the spool holder for my handspun yarn. It came with my spinning wheel, a Kromski "Polonaise".
And my big basket holding my spinning supplies - the Niddy Noddy, the swift and some wool ready to spin and then I have 4 colors of alpaca that I plan to spin soon. The alpaca I have is creamy white, deep rich black, grey and some camel colored tan. I was thinking what I'd make with these nice natural colors and I thought it would make some really special Japanese Flowers for a scarf.
And so.. wish me luck on mucking out my craft room... there is way too much stuff in there! LOL
