Closet Playing

I just had to try out the Expedit as knit storage. This will work so much better than those hanging bags things I had in my old closet. Do you wonder why I am knitting for other people and not for myself anymore?
Just one of Dave's sweaters is one I knit and the rest are from his 'collection'. Just two cubbies worth.
In reality, it's all sweatshirts here on a daily basis.



That tiny old closet is going to be reorganized completely, when I get totally bored with the new stuff. The new walk-in is soooo much better, and yesterday Dave finished the painting and we installed in new fluorescent light fixture (4' long!) and it is BRIGHT in there. We still await the installation of the baseboard, but today the new bath is being tiled. Woowoo.
I found space in the wire drawers from some bedding and stacked my bags of bed quilts on top. Most of the time the lights will be off and there is going to be a door to this room, keeping it free of the all the floating dog hair. I hope.



Just last week we had our first frost and now the trees are turning glorious colors, and falling in drifts. So pretty for a few weeks and then it will be all bare.
PS. Today is the ninth anniversary of this blog. I can't believe it has been nine years! What a blabbermouth I must be.

  1. Everything looks so bright and beautiful. What a nice treat to walk into that glorious color every day. I have rolling shelving units similar to your and love them. The remodel is coming along beautifully and I love to see what you are doing.

    Congrats on your ninth blog anniversary. Please keep it going. I always start my work day off by looking at it and then occasionally scroll through your gallery for inspiration and joy. The colors, patterns and movement of the quilt are uplifting.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. What Deb said! And...It appears you're having almost as much fun reorganizing all the beautiful fiber-y color as creating it!
    Happy 9th anniversary. I'm so grateful for your blog!

  5. Congrats Mel! It was a happy day when I discovered you in blogland. The colors in your sweater cubby echo many of the fall display you see out your window. I must learn to knit, I think I have 3 sweaters!

  15. What a great closet! I went to Lowe's this weekend and purchase two of the round 21.65" ceiling lights for my studio. Now all I have to do is paint the ceiling and get my brother over to help me install them.
