Nothing to see here...

just fabric. This is what we spent Tuesday evening putting up, and there is about eighty bolts that are 'homeless', and awaiting shelves, or some such elevating thing as to get them off the floor and looking like pretty, saleable merchandise. Anyway, I know you're here to see something, so here's Amy, Heather, and a bit o' Kaffe:







Trust me, there's more. I could show you the yarn wall, but it really isn't quite ready. Melly has sweetened up her sweetie some more and he's building a different style of 'yarn house' to put on top of the flat yarn bins DestructoKenny made previously. Oh, alright. I'll give you a peek... or two, but this is VERY preliminary, and in no way reflects the effect I'm going for...


See there? That's a house full of 'Smooshy', with Opal living next door. Louet is there, too. more of that came today. I'm only missing two of the 46 colors now. Did you want to see the rest of the yarn wall? Fine. I'm sleepy, and haven't the will to argue...


Now, try to imagine a lovely, roomy, spacious 'condominium' of fiberlicious goodness arranged between those two dollhouses full of yarn. When it's done,I think the Lorna's Laces will move in, along with some of the Louet Gems, because there is more yarn coming. Oh, and the furniture should be here soon... oh, and I won the bid for the round mahogany coffee table, you know, for the knitters to use, for bevs, and gadget-holding, and cookie-resting. General flopping. Useful. And cheap. Thirty bucks. (And my silent bid was fifty... bargain!)


I leave you this evening with a sad little photo I took the other night when I got home from fake knit-night... Monday evening, when muh knittas came to paint and clean and do all sorts of heavy grunt jobs for Carpet Diem. This is what was waiting for me on the steps up to our bedrooms...

A 'neglected' little man, who passed out waiting for momma to come home. His father insists this happened just moments before I pulled in the drive... a likely story. Probably true. He has actually fallen asleep in weirder places before. At least he's wearing a diaper...

Oh, I see lots of things on those shelves that I need to have! I could knit samples for the store - need long distance help? I'll work for yarn and/or fabric :) g

Oh, the shop is so beautiful! I wish I could come see it.

it's a store! It's A Store! IT'S A STORE!!! Oh, I'm so excited for you, I'm bouncing in my office chair!

And the carpet is fine, who's going to look at it with the bounds of color and texture all around? And I love the yarn dollhouses. And cookie-resting and knitting and oh, I'm so excited! (ok, I might have had a tad too much coffee already, but it's so cool!!)

and I think the little one looks cute. Mine's too big to look cute in weird places anymore. Not that it doesn't still happen now and then.

Oooooo . . . pretty!

At my knit night, we talk about women who are "trout", who are drawn to shiny things, and Must Have Them. While fabric and yarn aren't shiny, they sure are pretty . . . I love the photos of the fabric wall--you could put every last one of those fabrics into a monstrous quilt and it would be gorgeous!

I'm so excited for you to get this up and going. Have a great day!

Hmmm. I'm torn between whether I should say: a) Holeee Crap! The sight of those fabrics is enough to make me come out of lurkdom. Why oh why can't you be here in the northern part of the state where we only get "old-school" quilt fabrics? Looks like a road trip for the quilty peeps in the fall perhaps. or, b) Awww. Look at the little sweetie -- waiting for you. Too cute!
