Organizing (and my new prize)

New Year, we should organize!

How 'bout you? Are you organizing or decluttering?

Paul and I headed downstairs, into the basement, to get something done.

On my side, my messy cutting table.

Over the holidays, it just became a gathering spot for things I didn't want to take the time to properly put away.

Projects in progress, new acquisitions, you know the drill...

Tons of 'keeper' magazines and pattern books that were piling up in the living areas.

Ah, you can't help but notice my most recent acquisition?

Alice Starmore's "Pacific Coast Highway". I got very lucky and found someone willing to sell a copy for a reasonable price.

Amazon has it for $150, used. For a paperback knitting book. That's almost obscene, isn't it?

Gorgeous fair isle knitting in my future!

With all the books put away, there is fresh hope.

Clear space. Wow!

Paul did some organizing on his shop side of the basement.

Ski tuning/waxing table is at the ready!

Fresh mushrooms are started.

Paul got a kit to grow more portabella mushrooms for Christmas. The basement is a perfect place - cool and dark.

Give it a month. We'll be feasting!

I am so jealous of the new camera! It looks fabulous. Oh, and home grown portabello mushrooms . . . cool!
