Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all have a nice weekend planned and the weather cooperates. We have the mowers due in the morning and are hoping the next round of rain will hold off until they are done.

I got a jump on my weekend plans this morning when Brad helped me move the old recliner out of the dining room where it was rarely used and into my workroom where I will make a lot more use of it.

I lowered the table to make it more accessible to the chair and give me someplace to put my laptop and my Yeti mug. This will make a wonderful knitting and reading corner when I need away from the TV and Brad would like to watch something that doesn’t interest me.

I can easily scoot the chair out to get to anything on the shelves behind it. My stereo/CD player is in the workroom and I can enjoy that now. The workroom has mostly been a storage room since we put in the wire shelving and I’ve not used the floor loom in ages. My spinning corner is in a bedroom and I’ve been doing all my knitting in the living room. Now I can clear away some of the knitting clutter next to my chair in the living room and take my WIP back and forth from one room to the other and stop storing so much stuff in the living room.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
