Anger is Great Motivation

Specifically, I have completely rearranged my room. I now have a knitting nook, albeit not quite finished. Well, actually, none of my room is "finished," but it is close. Check out the yarn and knitting books and implements. :)

I still need to put up curtains and a few pictures and my weavings (all wall hangings, without rods, just another thing that Will never got around to).
Plus my bed now faces the doorway again, and I have a new jar of B&Body Works "body butter" in my new fave scent "Tiare Flower." I put all of the pillows back on my bed. All thirteen of them. :) The yellow quilt and pillows were a gift from a family friend for my HS graduation. I love them, but sadly the family friend is no longer a family friend, as she had a mental break-down related to bunnies and will no longer return my calls. :( The quilt does, however, bring back happy memories from before that time. (Oh, and that beige wall color in the picture above, is VERY accurate. It's not so pretty.)

Finally, I bought a new shelf for my African Violets, and took down the table he gave me. I'm still working on the TV area. I really want a TV stand. Right now it is on a bedstand and I can swivel it towards my chair or bed. :)

So a little more work and I need to put away some things that you can't see in the picutres. Plus I need to find a new spot for the stash. :) Then my room make-over will be complete.

Oh, and, if you are planning on being at the Fiber Event on Friday, I hope to meet you there. Send me an email if you plan to attend.

Your room looks great! I've been thinking of you, Kelli. Good for you for putting that negative energy into something constructive!

PS Men are stupid :-)

I'm going to be there!!!!! I will be in the company of a tall blond with spiky hair. I am a highlighted blond who is a bit shorter than her. I think I will be wearing this capelet over my clothes.

Depends on if it dries in time.

Your room looks wonderful - sometimes change can be a good thing.

PS Not ALL men are stupid ;o)

Love the shelf-I have one that has all my knitting books on it.
Now, find and play"I will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor at least 10 times! Put it on your phone and Ipod and play it,dance to it and feel it. At every wedding, we DeLeeuw women go out on the dance floor and sing this at the top of our lungs! After 30 years, we think the men are begining to get it!!! Really, the song helps-and our little Granddaughters know it by heart along with the story"The Paper Bag Princess"--the point of the story is NO BUMS and women can live happily ever after without Bums! The song helps mend a broken heart. And, watch "The Jagged Edge" with Glen Close and Jeff Bridges. At the end her friend,played by Robert Loggia has a great line about men. It will make you smile and cheer. Then go buy yarn with his share of the food money!!!!!!!!

yep, what pat said!
at our family weddings we all dance and sing, very poorly, i might add, to "we are family." has kind of the same idea behind it.
i was at my daughter's house monday and got a phone call that sent me into full gear. cleaned her floors and kitchen.
hang in.

I'm new to your blog. Clicked over from Red Dog Knits. Great idea making changes for your space after your heartbreak. The mental breakdown over bunnies sounds like a good story, but my main question is about those beautiful African Violets? How do you do it? My sweet Granny's name was Violet and she always had a ton of them like you (your picture reminded me so much of hers). I tried to "grow" them once in her honor but failed terribly.

Yay for a new view and some rearranging the decor. It looks great. Your room looks like it is nice and big. What a cozy place to hang out and knit. The yellow and blue quilt is very pretty.

I am so curious as to the mental break-up of your friend over bunnies. I am a bunnygroomer and bunny whisperer at my local shelter, and sometimes I get very upset about the way people treat bunnies...they are low animal on the totem poles of shelters......is your friend ok now? What happened. Is there anything I should look out for so I never have a break-down.....?
