If you have been reading my latest posts, you will know that I got excited by a creativity module I took in a leadership program. I came home from that training wondering why my living room didn't have a creativity center to inspire us daily, and why my rug stuff was all over the place spilling out of baskets and making it a pain to find anything when I wanted to sit down and hook.
The consequence was two trips to IKEA, first to get a creativity center set up in a corner in my living. That build in ended up displacing my rug hooking to a smaller area in my living room that would not hold the overflow of my baskets. So for Mother's Day, the boys and I went back to IKEA and brought home another shelf and set it up in the rug hooking corner. Now all my wool for my current projects resides in baskets that load in and out of the shelf easily. I put a few inspiring books and magazines on rug hooking in one of the slots, and a basket of rug hooking tools in another. Now I just have to pull the basket I need and flip on the light.
I am making headway on the Palette Constellation rug visible in the foreground. I only have two more rows of color to go. Then the royal pain of binding this monster. Not sure how that is going to happen yet.
