to boldly go where no shuttle has gone before...

One must admit that when posting the picture below, one must think of the good old starship enterprise. Foolish girl that I am, I have in recent years purchased for dear husband the series in it's entirety on Dvd. He's an admitted Sci-fi geek, but he's cute and he cleans the gutters, so I think I'll keep him.




And there is no need to fear that I have given up tatting to build starship models.....



No. I am here to introduce to you,


My new tatting corner.


Ta-Daaaa!

-which is indeed not a corner at all. My fabulous new chair occupies the end of the wall that separates the kitchen from the living room. The chair stands proudly in all it's glory, tilted from the wall at an angle.....for you see, I work best in a non-symmetrical environment. Anyway, my end table from the previous tatting space is probably the only thing that made it's way back into tat corner here at the new house. It's usage has changed however. I took out the shelf in the cupboard that used to house all my backstock of thread. I don't have as much accessible storage space here, so I've opted to put the tatting books and my binders in the cupboard, and the thread has gone to a storage closet in the office/craft room. The other new additions to this tatting space are of course the chair, the soft microfiber blanket (that color makes me extremely happy for some odd reason :-), the new tote atop the table which houses my readily available tatting supplies and projects (the monstrosity tote just didn't fit with the decor, it too is in the other closet.), and last but not least my fabulous Ott-Lite! Yes, that is what is depicted in the first photo of this post. I had been using Hubby's Ott lite, but it's a table version and I had to sort of lean over toward it to use it. This beaut' is a floor lamp with a bendy part on it so I can position it right over the top of me. Hubby had money put aside for a new recliner for himself, but he decided not to get it because he likes how the room feels as I have it set up now with just the sofa and one (my) chair. Good thing I got mine first I guess! Lol. Hubby kindly let me get the lamp while it was on %40 off sale at Joann.....which in fact does carry some Lizbeth now! Hooah!

Anyway, my blissful tatting spot. It pleases me. Much much.

In fact, I think I'll stop blogging so I can go sit there and enjoy. It took me untill like 10:30pm tonight to get my housework done, so I think I have earned a few moments of double stitching!


Thank you all for your love and support during the move, I love all of my bloggy friends. And I'll be meeting some of you soon.....shuttlebirds is just weeks away!

You have a lovely new tatting corner! Mine doesn't look that neat right now... I'm in the middle of being inspired by too many beautiful threads and patterns, and it's too hard to choose just a little bit to stay by my side!

What a great tatting area you have. It looks so cozy! I have one of those ott-lites, I think there great! Happy Tatting!

Gina said...

Ooohhh...you look so organized! But what a happy corner! I love my Ott light. I do use a regular lamp on one side and my ott light on the other. I like lots of light!

Your tatting corner is gorgeous. I need to invest in an Ott-lite. I end up having every available light in the room on, and my tatting corner is in the family room along with the TV, so the Stooges gripe about the light.

DH and I like Star Trek, but aren't trekies. DH likes it more than me & has an Enterprise ligted ornament for the Christmas tree. Recently he bought me 2 collectable figures from last summer's movie. I said "Um thanks!" and now they are gathering dust. (I DO collect Pez - and have the star trek ones...) Maybe I can give you the figures for your hubby if I see you at Tat Days....

That chair looks so comfy. And an Ott Light! What a wonderful husband you have! I've wanted one forever, but there always seems to be something more pressing to spend the money on.
