Well, let me start off by asking if you remember this photo I posted YEARS ago...
Well, today seemed like a good time to join in on What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, because I did just recently come across a used desk someone was throwing out, and it was just what I needed!
The size was perfect, and Dear Son-In-Law was good enough to help me bring it home! So, NOW was the time, while Dear Son is on Summer Vacation, that I could start the project I've been dreaming of for a good year or so now! Here's just a wee little sneek-peek at my new desk, and what's actually setting on it, right this minute!
The project I'm working on, is turning a walk-in closet into a craftroom! Now, I suppose a before-shot would have been interesting, but I was far too embarassed to go showing what it looked like before. I suppose, instead, I could show you what my house now looks like, now that I've emptied the closet... But no, I'm STILL too embarrassed to show you that either! I admit I'm a very boarderline-horder type of "collector". Yes, I have a great appreciation for many things! Is that so bad?!.. Well, in this case, I can admit defeat when it all appears to be taking over. This closet has been a nightmare; and clearing it out has been exhausting, especially in this heat! But I have thrown 4 full, 30-gallon-sized trash bags out to the curb so far. So, what a very good girl I am, yes?!!!.. I just told myself that if I have not used, nor looked at, something in as much as 3 years, then LET IT GO....
So what now?.. At the moment, I am gradually planning,cleaning and piecing the room together. I have a grand vision in my head, which I'm afraid I can not afford all at once; but I will not get discouraged, as frankly, I don't think my all hopes and excitement will allow anyways! I'll just try to show you my progress as I go with it... Sound good?
In the meantime, I rolled another couple balls of denim strips for my rag rug.. And then I switched projects, crocheting a red, white, and blue skirt for my 4th of July/Summer tree!
Let me see, I forget now... I think I see 14 rounds done here? I got the pattern from HERE. My tree is only a 3-footer, and sets atop my entertainment center in the living room, so there was no need to make it terribly big, and I was finished with it in just a couple of nights. Here's a full view of the tree, although I wish I had hidden the wires better than I did for these photos...
I'd like to fill it up with more ornaments, or maybe some white garland?.. But I guess I'll save that for next year. I'll watch for the clearance sales after Christmas!
Sitting underneath is a TY Beanie I just recently picked up at a local yard sale. According to her tag, her name is Franny; and she says, "Hip Hip Hooray For the U.S.A!" She looks so cute there, and just makes me smile!
