Twyla on Tuesday

Hello dear friends!
I am so happy to say that the work on the craft room is
almost done!



There will be a grand reveal this Friday!
It feels so good to finally be able to say we can share
our room with you!
This picture below is a section of my yarn storage area.
Sorry for the blurry photo :(



Some of my treasures and trinkets close up!



I can't tell you how hard it was to hang these lanterns!
I worked at it much longer than I should have. 
We found a package of vintage Oriental lanterns at
an antique mall and thought they'd add a lot of whimsy
to our craft room.


We've had such a busy time the last two weeks with our craft room redo,
(which messed up the whole house) and visiting family from Wisconsin.
It is like a breath of fresh air to step into our space and feel the
inspiration of all the pretty colors and vintage sweetness.

Totally unaffected by all that is going on, Barney has time to sit and watch
while mom and Lindsey work endlessly. 
I guess anyone as pretty as him should just sit and look pretty anyway.

Okay!  Mark your calendars!  Tie a string around your finger!
The craft room reveal is this Friday, Oct. 8th!
Hope you all can come!
Wishing you much happiness!
Twyla

I can't wait, Twyla. I love to look at all your little treats! Your dog, Barney, looks just like our dog, Harvey, when he is trimmed! It is startling to look at his picture. Right now, he is just a shaggy old dog!!!

It's beautiful! I love the beautiful shades of color in your yarn! Today I have not felt very good and it's been so cool...that I put my little crocheted slippers on, that you made me, and I felt better! Nothing like something from a friend to give you comfort! Hugs! ♥

Twyla, Pins and needles hear waiting for the reveal! It makes me so very happy to see my little mouse clock in your creative space. Truly you and Lindsey are such an inspiration to my own creativity. All your beautiful yarn makes me want to crochet! Have a lovely day! Elizabeth

I thought Disneyland was supposed to be the happiest place on Earth. Your craft room definitely holds that title now! I love the colors you've chosen, and I can't wait to see more!

Sally Annie Magundy said...

Can't wait for the full reveal Twyla! I'm so envious, sure wish I could whip this unruly mess into shape.

I want to give darling Barney a biscuit, such a cutie! He looks like he's settled in so very happily.

Happy Wednesday,
Sally
