spring is in the air, so...
I organized my yarn in my back room today! I wish I was a more organized person, but alas, I am not, although I love it when things are orderly! What is that old saying..."things go from order to disorder." Oh how true, especially when it comes to me! I had put all my yarn in plastic bins with drawers a few months ago which was an improvement over rummaging through countless plastic bags, but another old saying..."out of sight, out of mind" happened. I would buy wool and acrylic on clearance in lovely shades of coral or turquoise, stash it away and get amnesia about the purchase. Then I would see some more skeins in those color schemes and think, Oh should should buy some! When I went through the drawers today I was startled by the amount of unused skeins I had! I ran out to Walmart to get some simple plastic milk crates that I could stack together with most of my yarn visible. (I had hoped that 5 would hold all of it but I still had to use the bins for the partial skeins) Well it took a while, but I like the way it looks and I think it will be more workable. This day re-confirmed that I must not go to the new yarn shop in town until I use up much of what I already have. At least I hope I can stay away from it! Argh!!
I also spent Monday, spray painting random objects around my house a cheery peachy coral, including my new male deer plaque that I got from Gingers Girl to go with the one I already bought!
