Cork Bulletin Board and the Parthenon

For a non-knitting Completed Project... I finally finished my Cork Bulletin Board. I bought the board for this project years ago and acquired the corks as we drank wine. Some I collected when we traveled to France, England, Scotland, Wales and Italy, and some I collected from my own stash and then others were donated to me. It came to me that I obviously don't drink enough wine because it was taking forever to collect enough, so I finally broke down and bought some corks on ebay. May be cheating I know but at the rate I was collecting them personally, I would have been retired and wouldn't really care about keeping notes on a bulletin board. So I've taken a picture of it by itself, it measures 23 inches square. The second picture I placed a recent KnitPicks catalog for size reference.



I took some beautiful fall pictures from my office window on Friday. This is a view of the Parthenon in Nashville. Yes, it is a replica of the Parthenon in Greece, we are the sister city. The Parthenon holds beautiful art and sculpture and is a definite "must see" on a visit to Nashville.

I love the cork board, I have been saving mine up to make a tivet out of them. I have them on dispay in my living room right now in a glass vase. I am dying to get up to Nashville sometime. I still haven't been quite that far west in TN...

Really nice cork board! Nice large size also. Great project.

Beautiful photos indeed! I am afraid such a lovely view would encourage me to daydream - not getting any work done! Luckily I am retired... :)
