All this and Caribou, too!

Although Saucy may have exaggerated slightly about my bad mood, she wasn’t too far off. One word to sum up my last two days: Grey. But things are getting better. Even though I’ve had trouble staying focused, I have made some progress on organizing my craft area and the Family room. Here is a before and after picture of my craft cabinet and one of the partially done family room:
Because I made so much progress, I decided I deserved a treat, so I took myself to the big Joanne craft store to find a couple of things. It is two towns away so I don’t get to go there very often – there’s a small one closer, but it usually doesn’t have what I want. I found what I needed and (bonus!) there was a Caribou Coffee nearby in the same strip mall. Extra treat! So my mood is finally starting to improve. And, Yeah! Something came in the mail I’ve been waiting for too.

I've still got a ways to go before the room is fully finished, but I'm feeling more optimistic about the whole thing now.

On a separate note, still waiting for my Ravelry invitation to come; I think it will be a while . . . Here’s what the locator had to say:
"You signed up on July 22, 2007
You are #19632 on the list.
9553 people are ahead of you in line.
8528 people are behind you in line.
35% of the list has been invited so far "

That's all for now, I'm going to go work on some knitting.

You're right! I took my mom to the Joann right after it opened and she fell in love with it because she's a quilter and they have a whole section just for quilters. I checked out some of the new "organic" yarn that Patons just came out with. It's like wool-ease, more synthetic than natural. I was disappointed because I thought the percentage would be closer to 50/50.
