*~*~*Where Bloggers Create*~*~*

~Where this blogger creates~

I have always wanted to partake in this event
hosted by the lovely and talented
Karen Valentine at

I will be sharing just a few aspects of this room
since as of late,
life has been happening to me rather
than the other way around.
Needless to say it's a bit (okay, a lot) disheveled.
One other note is that this is the only white room in the house.
Mr. LB and I share:
he ties flies (for fishing) and I stitch.
So here we go~

A place for do-dads

On the opposite wall is my thread rack (& design wall actually.)
I keep bobbins on one row for the thread that is on the next two rows.

We each have a vintage light globe hanging above our work space.
They hang from a chain that is entwined with ivy.

Isn't color just beautiful?

Drop spindles and an old Singer.

Shorter pieces of lace get wound around a wooden clothes peg,
not a new idea, but an effective one.

And I found this little fella at a yard sale last weekend and
figured he would be a good one to keep me company in here.

This weekend we ladies of the family are heading over to
the Oregon Summer Quilt Expo in Redmond, OR and then to
the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.
I will share more on those when I return.

Lastly, Thank You to Karen!
There is so much inspiration and creativity amongst bloggers.
It's always fun to search around and see new ideas.

Until next time,
Nimble Fingers and Even Stitches
