It must be September because the apples are getting red and tugging at the tree limbs. The other trees didn't fruit this year and even the apples are fewer then usual. They will be very welcome this year, I love apple cake!
The last ten days have been a bit rough and I haven't really been doing much. Read a Doctor Who novel and The Invisible man. Currently I'm reading a Doctor Who novel where he is separated from the TARDIS and living with prostitutes in 1780's London. An interesting book written as a history of the period. I have also been working on the craft room, getting things sorted and put away. Pattie, my sister, has started setting up a craftroom so I can't let her out do me! We both have different ideas of setting up a room so this should be interesting. She is using baskets (bought at DI) that she has decorated to hold her supplies. I like to contain my supplies in stuff from the hardware store and containers that would otherwise be recycled. Using toolboxes helps to make crafting portable along with rolling luggage. It also stacks on shelves nicely and keeps supplies from getting dusty. With so many hobbies I need the supplies protected. Lee got the paper racks stacked today so I now have five feet of trays to sort paper into! I love it! Having the trays stacked helps me to reach the paper more easily and that makes me want to craft. That is why it is so important to be organized. Not knowing where your knitting needles are when you want to try a new stitch is aggravating not to mention the time wasted looking for things. With a little luck I hope to have the room organized by October. The goal is to get as many supplies as possible into the room and also have a table cleared and a chair to sit in and craft! How would you design a craft room? I would love to hear other crafters ideas!
