But I do have something to talk about!

Last night we finished putting up the baseboards in the craft room. Nearly did the night before after we were done with those on the landing (same laminate flooring everywhere upstairs except the bathroom). But there was just one baseboard missing and we also needed two more corner pieces... Bought them yesterday and got everything done. Put the lamp up. Pushed all the boxes and the bird cage to the place where the future indoor aviary (two metres long, two high, one deep) will be and carried the shelves around to see how we'd get the most out of the room. Carried the two armchairs that formerly lived in our living room and that will now be my knitting-spinning-crocheting-birdwatching-podcastlistening- and his reading-and-birdwatching- chairs up from the basement and placed them at the wall across the birds and the shelves. Next to them and next to the window will go a desk or working table for sewing and painting and... and I could need a tiny coffee table or something for inbetween the two chairs.
THEN (after a dog walk and dinner and cleaning up the kitchen) I carefully opened the box with my sock yarn. Put the precious skeins and balls in the CD shelves, carefully thinking about in which order to place them. I love how this came out. Realised that I have to get some balls of solid colours to go with all those yarns I have already made a pair of socks with and that now are just a bit short for another one. Then I opened some more boxes. With more yarn. The big ball of white roving. The small bits of so beatifully coloured rovings. My spindle. The tiny ball of yarn I plyed from the singles that were on the spinning wheel when Sweetheart bought it. Added everything onto the shelf. Looks really great, just need to replace those blue covered plastic bins with some baskets or wood boxes.
Could nearly not stop my self from opening the box with the knitting books but it was late and I definitely couldn't keep my eyes open any more. So I took a shower and went to bed. First thing today on my way to the bathroom was to have a look inside the craft room. But not (only) to check if the birds are ok but to see how pretty my yarn looks! Will open the other boxes with the books today! Also with the binder with the printed patterns and the box with the magazines. And have a short look at them...
Oh and perhaps today I should really really really rip open all boxes to finally find that battery charger!!!!!!!!!!!! Some pics here would be so nice.
