Okay, so then it was time to re-organize my wool room, straighten the stacks, put like wool together from the wool that I'd taken to camps and put back with the bulk on the shelves. And when pulling out wool from the middle of the stack the wool oozes out, hangs down.... you get the picture I'm sure. Which meant that before my wool arrives I needed to reorganize my stash. STASH? My room looks like a hooking shop. I do not ever need to buy wool again as long as I live (Betsy and Erica, I've been known to say this before, so I lie).
Isn't this pretty? Well at least it is starting to be pretty. Wait til you see the other pictures. Ya see the mesh tote sitting askew? That is the wool which is left over from the class with Lucille Festa this past November, which still needs to be put away. And, under that mess is a wonderful antique ice cream parlor table and chairs but you can't see it because of all the mess.
So then pulling off wool from the shelves and dumping on the floor just made for even more of a mess than I had in the beginning. I should have taken a before picture before I started putting wool on the floor. But now I'm overwhelmed. Sure wish I'd started this clean up BEFORE buying these additional beautiful 9 yards of wool.
Okay.... Courtney is supposed to be dying this week she is off. So I'm thinking that I should take some of the this and that's odd pieces and dye too.... IF there should be a color I need (NEED???? am I crazy??) then I'll dye it. God knows I've enough wool to play with and put in dye pots.
I have a very nice table on which to cut wool or draw out a pattern. Frankly, I have a very nice wool room but it is in total chaos. Here is a picture when my room was more organized. Isn't it pretty?
But this is the way it looks right now.
Okay, think I'm done for the night because I cannot stand the chaos any longer. And poor Ben wanted his mommy with him so he came up to lay on the mounds of wool and he makes a big heap to walk around. So I'll continue tomorrow during his nap time so I won't be missed.
