My husband might think it is slightly more hell-like than heaven-like though. I do have to admit that the craziness in the dining room is getting to me a bit too. My mother-in-law dropped by 12 more garbage bags of yarn last weekend. This pile is much more chaotic, with similar types of yarn in three or four bags mixed with random bits. It is taking more organization than the last load and as such, I’ve had to spread out a bit more too (though still keeping it contained to the dining room). Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving digging through the bags and discovering all sorts of beautiful yarn treasures!
Once I am all done the Make It show, then I will have to sit down and figure how I’m going to go about selling the yarn. I need to decide if I will sell the yarn through my current Bubblegum Sass shop or open another one dedicated to yarn supplies. Something tells me that a light box might be in order for taking good photos. Feels like another new adventure awaits me.
For those of you wondering why our dining room has been invaded by bags and bags of yarn, I am blessed to have Judy from Jen By The Fjord as my mother-in-law. She recently closed down her yarn shop in the Charles Reid Mall in Banff (was previously in Harmony Lane). Several years ago it was located in Canmore. Same shop and same lovely lady running it even back then. For now, big changes seem to await her. I have been tasked with not only trying to help her sell some of the yarn inventory online, but also with making endless beautiful things from it. I don’t want to disappoint.
Here’s a tiny peek at some of the stash:
