Crowded living room

| No Comments


The recent donations of yarn from people at work created a need for containers to store the yarn. I also wanted a container for storing the done blankets and one for the in-progress blanket(s). So, I stopped by Target one night last week and got 2 66-gallon plastic storage containers for $5.00 each and one smaller (15-gallon?) container for about $3.00. Then I discovered I needed more! So, I bought 2 more $5.00 66-gallon storage containers over the weekend. All is well now, but our living room has 6 large storage containers and 2 (now empty) copy-paper boxes in it, as well as the in-progress container and 2 other project containers (one holding the in-progress double crochet hook blanket and one holding the crochet pattern books). Hmmm, when the gym equipment is gone, I'll move the 6 large containers into my new "craft" room...

"How much yarn to you need, honey?"

"How many tools and toys [motorcycles, mini machine shop in the backyard, torn apart 1947 Ford truck, etc.] do you need, honey?"

Just kidding around...my hubby is very supportive of whatever makes me happy, as I am of him...even boxes and plastic containers and bags of yarn and stuff all over the living room...and truck parts all over the garage and backyard and in some rooms of the house. He's even volunteered to get rid of the "gym equipment" (weight machine thing) so I can change our never-used "gym" into a craft room for quilting (after I learn how to use Mom's sewing machine) and stuff. I want to move the big, comfy brown lounge chair that's in my office into the room, if there's a place for it after getting a table for the sewing machine and storing cloth and stuff. Hmmm, but if I did that, where would I watch Schrek and my other DVD movies? The computer in my office is the only DVD player in the house. Hmmm, I've been thinking about getting an inexpensive DVD/VCR player for the living room...now might be the time.
