I didn't get all that much done since I spent a largish portion of one day organizing my books. I got rid of almost all of my paperbacks when I moved and managed to fit all that are left into this media cabinet (plus all my unread hardcovers and oversized paperbacks). I was a little disappointed with the shelf placement and have 6 shelves left over. I guess I could drill my own holes and manage one more on each side, but it's probably not worth the effort since I try not to keep the paperbacks after I have read them. Which means that I haven't read most of the books in that cabinet! Yikes -- simply not enough time to read or stitch everything I want! I still have two large plastic storage containers full of hard covers that I'm not sure what I'll do with. I can't afford to get another cabinet right now and even if I could, I'm not sure where I would put it!! I think I'm going to have to move the couch down a bit and use the wall next to the window. It will probably look a bit odd, but there simply is nowhere else unless I put it in my room.
Great progress. I also love to read. I get most of my books from the library so I don't have to worry about storage space. We also have a spot a work where you can put books you have read and pick up books to read. I agree there is not enough time in the day to read or stitch. I go in streaks where I stitch alot or I read alot. In the reading mode now.
Where did you get your 38" scroll rods? I need some larger ones.
