The good news is, I now have a craft room and the bad news is my baby (26 yr. old) has finally left the nest. I have installed my desk, all of my stash and even my TV is mounted on the wall. This room is more than a craft room, it’s my sanctuary. There is only one chair and everything in here is mine. My first order of business was to put up my finished projects even though they are not framed and actually thumb tacked to the walls. I had the bright idea to stretch them over foam core board which will make it easier to frame them as I find the appropriate frame for each one. So far I’ve only done five, and like everything else it’s a WIP too. There are some very exciting things going on for me starting Saturday. I will be stitching in what we on the forum at (about.comcross stitch) call a SWAT. I’ve mentioned it before; it’s a Stitch Week-A-Thon. The rules are, you stitch whatever you want, as much or as little as you want, from the beginning Saturday to the ending Saturday (14-21 July). The Saturdays are 8 hour marathons to stitch and watch old movies or TV shows, your choice. The main thing is to have fun and know that somewhere in the world someone is stitching right along with you. Also on the 15th I will be attending a “Lock-In” at my LNS (In StitchesNeedlework), it starts at 1 pm until 5pm with a catered lunch. I will have pictures to share. Monday is sign-up day for the next IHSW which starts on the 21 July, so I’ll be stitching every day, even after my mixed league golf round on Tuesday afternoon at (Greendale GolfCourse). Normally I’d be going to stitch-night at In Stitches Needleworks on the third Wednesday night of the month, but stitch-night is on hiatus until September so it’s stitching at home while listening to the TV. Thursday is the new moon which means it’s time for TUSAL (Totally Useless SAL) I’ll have a picture to post for your approval. Again on Friday I will be left to my own devices and who knows what trouble I will get into. Saturday of course is IHSW and the end of SWAT so a stitching I will be. I suspect I will make some progress on some of my WIPs or some new starts; in any case I will be making some little xxs. Well here are a few pictures of my sanctuary, and a bonus picture of me in Atlantic City last weekend. Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments which I love and join me in making xxs.
