Pegs R Us

Here are some snaps of Needlepoint Land around 7:30 pm. I can see I will need another pegboard, but only 4’x8′ this time around.  It can fit in my Escape that you see in the 3rd pic down. The 4’x8′ pegboard has 4608 holes, but you can only use 256 due to the space that the thread takes up hanging off a hook (around 2″x 9″).  I need 282 hooks to accommodate all the DMC 5 Pearl colors.  So I will use the big board to hang most of them up, which I think will look beautiful, and the smaller one (which I will hang long side up) for the remaining Pearl skeins and a mix of other threads.  I am definitely going to get a pro to hang the slat wall, which is quite heavy, but I may DIY the pegboards.
