In my room.

I always enjoy it when others post about their workspace, so I thought I'd share my room with you. The room is very white because we haven't painted yet. I change my mind all the time about what color it will be when we can paint it. Mark made the bookshelf for me and I painted it. He's very handy.

This picture is for you, Jenn. This is the spice rack I told you I keep some of my beads in.


A crocheted beaded bag with a bee on it. More on these later. I received this one as a shower gift when I was pregnant with N. His room was decorated with bumblebees. Also, a tiny bird picture I cross-stitched. For those who cross stitch, this was done on 28-count linen, stitched with one thread over one thread. Tiny! It's the only one I did with one-over-one because I thought I would go blind doing it. But the bird is very cute. It's the red winged blackbird pattern from Bent Creek. And notice the vintage French beaded flowers.


A print from The Black Apple. Also on this shelf is a bag that my friend Christina knitted for me.

Ah yes, my table. Yes, it's usually this messy. Used to be our old kitchen table. I was going to give it away when Mark had the great idea to keep it for bead work. He's so smart.

Here's a closer look at the projects on the table. My problem is that I start a project and then get excited about the thought of a new project and move on to that. The flower scissors case has been on my table for a long time. I need to start a new thread for the bead embroidery and for some reason that seems really hard. I really don't like ending and starting threads.

Thanks for visiting my room. Maybe next time I'll show you where most of the bead work really happens. Toodles!

Looks like fun - and I am interested to see where most of the bead work really happens!

Funny - I did pretty much the same post as you today.

I like seeing people's work spaces too. Some day mine will be more complete and I'll do a post about it.

I love your bead-keeping spice rack. Good idea.

I have exactly the same problem. Too excited about the next project to clean up from the first one. What a mess I have.
