I've said before that Dave is pretty handy when it comes to doing things around the house, computer and car. And today he proved it again.

When we got up this morning, he announced that he had some shelving brackets and we were going to go to Rona and get the rest of the pieces to make me some shelves above my beading table.

I'd been talking about it for a while, as the studio was in sad need of organization. The wool was pretty well under control, and so were the art supplies and books (other than being a little cluttered... it just needs a spring tidy) but the beads were starting to get out of hand.... even taking over the ironing board - which is cat territory. (It's right under the window, and since when do I ever iron? They might as well make good use of it.)

Anyway, we bustled off the the store, got our supplies and came back, at which point I had to kick him downstairs while I tidied the room enough so he could at least get in and actually hang the shelves... he likes to hang over me and mutter things about me being like Agnes, the goblin from Labyrinth, who lived in the trash heap and collected everything.

But, after a swift tidy, and some handy drilling on Dave's part( I have an awesome drill, but I never use it.... it's awesome though) My beads are all tidied and organized. I actually have space on the table to work... even if Rocky sprawls out in the middle of it.

And it feels (and looks) good... now if only I could do it to the rest of the house. I think I need a couple of days to just do a good spring clean!

As for knitting, I've made some, but not much, progress on the horsey blanket.... so I'd better get back to it.

Agnes is a good name. Nice tidy work.

Great shelves - I love getting organized like that...

I have been organizing myself....I love how darn great it feels to get rid of stuff you have had too long and make everything neat!

Yay for organization! I need to do that ... my house is not messy, but I need it better organized.
