April 1st (Fools' Day!) came in rather like a joke that's sort of funny but not really. Yesterday was extremely windy, and today I woke up to light breezes and 75% humidity. Nice...but really not nice. Humidity and sudden air pressure changes make me sick to my stomach. The warm air was pleasant, though! The funniest part - it's supposed to snow on Sunday and Monday. How's that for a joke?
All that being said, I had today off, so I decided to do a little spring cleaning. Here are a few snapshots of my room whilst I was 'cleaning' (let's be real - it eventually became more of a "Oh, where has this been? Gotta finish that!" adventure than any actual cleaning).
My sister gave me this book for Easter, and it's quickly becoming a favorite!
It's the best! I've already learned how to make my own citrus vinegar cleaning spray, and how to scour my sink with baking soda, and how to clean the linoleum, etc. I can't wait to try some of the recipes and gardening tips!
This ultra-springtimey pattern is making me so happy. I adapted a chart I found and decided to make it into a throw! When I'm finished, I'll share photos and links to the original pattern, and also how I made it into a throw if you're not familiar with join-as-you-go ;) Isn't it the cutest?
Various fibers I use for starting my weavings - all weights, all textures! Well, almost all.
Laying out a future idea...
Sometimes my bed becomes a worktable.
This giant metal basket from Michaels is my favorite thing. Look how well it holds the yarn I didn't really need but bought anyway! (Actually that's not true - I have big plans for this yarn.)
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my day! Happy April!
