In other news I have been knitting red, white, and blue dish towels. I have also been working on my new craft room. I was using the 3rd bedrrom as a craft room, but my youngest son will be moving into that room soon. He is still in our room. So I have been transforming a section of the basement into a craft room. Yesterday I cleared out some more space by setting up a holiday station in another part of the basment. Now I need to find a place for my husband's storage items. Then I will have more room in the area that I have claimed for myself. All of my fabric and yarn is well organized, and most of my craft and art books are organized as well. I have also been getting my stuff together for the Earth Day Fair. I have figured out a better way to show my juice pouch bags. Normally I have them all on a table. I am now using a clothing rack and hangers to show them. You don't get a great front view of them, but at least they are easier to look through. It also means that I have more room for my demos.
I can't seem to find the charger for my camera. So pictures are going to have to wait even longer.
