The hooking room is finally organized, at the expense of a couple closets and cupboards. When I wasn't sure what to do with something, it ended up in a closet or cupboard . . . sigh.
Reds, blues and greens. The basket on the bottom right has wools I've chosen for a Maggie Bonanomi rug I want to hook and on the left on the top of the basket is my collection of bright wools :)
Pie safe that has probably not seen its doors in decades. The stacks are a little wonky because of differing sizes and shapes of wool I was folding.
I love the top of the pie safe. A few purchased items and many gifts from friends. (Thank you Karin, Melinda, Bobbie, Cathy, Cynthia and Marly.)
Another pie safe purchased from a friend a couple years ago. The ladies sewing pocket on the left is from the very talented Melinda of Merry Wind Farm and the pug quilt on the right is a gift from sweet Gayle, the Middle Sister.
Inside it is VERY GREEN.
Another antique cupboard filled with books and "stuff".
My corner cupboard (not sure what that phantom spot is on the right door) that desperately needs some attention. It is to the point that when the upper doors are opened, "stuff" starts to fall out.
I've been collecting picnic baskets with the intention of hooking small mats for the top and giving as gifts. I probably have 8 - 10 baskets and have yet to hook a rug for one of them. These
are currently full of wooly worms.
I did decide to bring the little stand in I purchased at Gathered Treasures last weekend to hold books and magazines.
Under the table (that holds my cutter) is a basket of unwashed wool.
My problem child :) The laundry basket is full of bits and pieces of wool. I really need to sort by color and somehow organize them.
Yes, all this is in my not so big hooking room. Plus I have a couch and an old tool chest that I use for a coffee table/catch all. Hopefully I can do a little better job in keeping my wool/wool room organized, but as we all know, it's not an easy task.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
