A Peek Inside My New Office

In early May our youngest daughter moved out. A few weeks ago we finally got around to turning her room into my new office. I have been putting it to good use ever since then. It’s nice to have a work space where I can leave stuff out if/when I get interrupted from a task in progress. In the past I would have to do most work from the dining table. Having my own office has been a wish that is at last fulfilled.

I love that I also have this set up as my order filling/shipping station. Everything is at hand which is so wonderful! No more searching for the scissors, tape, packing material, etc.

This weekend I am working on yarn labels. It’s quite a large batch (1,940 to be exact!) to print, cut and then color label. It is inevitable that I will not get this all done in one sitting so it’s nice to be able to walk away without moving it all to another location.

I hope to get the labels ready to attach to the yarn by Monday. My work room is filled to overflowing at the moment with the yarn that we dyed Thursday, Saturday and Monday.

It took three days of prep work before the first dye day. We also had one prep day in between each of the other two dye days.

We had some rain on Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening. That caused a delay in getting some of the yarn dry but Monday through Wednesday were sunny, so all of the last two days of dyeing were dry by Tuesday evening.

That covers a good bit of what’s been happening around here. I better get busy on those yarn labels. Thanks for reading!

  1. Nothing like having your own space! The colours you made are beautiful.

    1. Yes, exactly! Thank you for your compliment.

  2. I don’t think we’ve had more than one day at a time without rain – and very few of them! There is so much humidity here in Vermont that I’m not sure I’ll ever feel dry again… Of course, the deluge this past week was even more of the same – much too much of the same! One friend measured 11 inches of rain in two days, and probably more, as her rain gauge overflowed. I’m glad I’m not responsible for drying all that yarn.

    1. Oh wow! I hope you get a break in the weather soon and can do some drying out.

  3. So happy for you! I know being able to leave a project out instead of having to put everything away every day is huge. Congratulations!

    1. Thank you 😊. I am enjoying it very much.
