A BIG THANK YOU to all who have stopped by in the last month! Today I had my 1000th hit. I am so happy. For months I thought about starting a blog, but was afraid no one would drop on by. Thank you all for erasing my doubts.
Today I thought I would give you the ten cent tour of my hooking/computer room. This is the smallest bedroom in the house and when I moved in almost ten years ago (where did the time go?), I got brave and painted it hunter green. I had never painted a room a dark color, let alone a small room, and to this day I still love the color! This built in corner desk is a little cramped, but it works as long as I don't let it get too cluttered.Here's the file cabinet that keeps me semi-organized and an antique cupboard full of books. The grape ivy in the crock was started many years ago from a few snips from a friend's plant.
A view to the north wall. I use an old tool chest as a coffee table. The hanging corner cupboard is a reproduction made from tiger maple. On top of it sits a "snow bird".
Here are a few samplers I stitched years ago. (Sorry about the spots ~ I don't know why they are there).
The little table was made by my older son in high school shop class. It's hard to see but I have a little hit and miss rug on top ~ the third thing I hooked back in May 2005.
This little hooked mat was hooked by Bonnie Stahl and purchased on eBay.
And finally ~ a couple of months ago I picked this up from a neighbor's trash pile. This is NOT quality furniture...lol! It's not even wood. I suppose at one time it had a picture of wood on it! Some day I may repaint it, but for now it's okay. It's just just the perfect spot for holding all that I need for my current project. I have my wool cutter there also. It's great to use when I only need to cut a few strips of wool. For serious cutting, I move it to a better location.
I hope you have enjoyed my little tour. Before you can peek in the wool closet, I need to straighten it a bit. I have a very hard time keeping it neat.
Thank you for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
