Finished for Friday - HURRAH!

Say it like a Marine...WHO-RAH!

After several weeks of the inability to muster up the energy to get anything done, I am so pleased with my accomplishments this week. After getting the Christmas stuff put away last week, I was ready to get our house back in order. I am ashamed to admit that it had not been cleaned since December 23. EGAD! Almost an entire month of dust and dirt! Tonight, the house is clean and every thing is back where it belongs. Laundry is done as well.

I rearranged my studio as I needed to make room for a "new" sewing machine.

While I was rearranging, I decided something needed to be done with my fabric stash.

All the fabric was put into piles according to color...

...then repacked into plastic totes.

All of these bits and pieces of fabric were gathered from hither and yon and now have a plastic tote of their own.

Another accomplishment this week was filling out adoption applications with two boxer rescue groups. The first step in finding a sister for these two. Rough life, eh?

Since I've worked so hard this week, I think I need a reward. Tomorrow I am heading to the "big" city. I will do some thrift shopping and some major smooching on these little cheeks.

Next week? We've got some packing to do as we will be heading to Milwaukee next Friday.

Milwaukee in January? Are you crazy?!

Yes, we are! Crazy about this little guy who will turn two next Friday.

What have you accomplished this week? Big or small, share it with us at Lit and Laundry.

Good job! I have a big pile of fabric that is begging to be sorted out. I can imagine how great it feels to get that done. And your studio looks great!

Have fun smooching those fabulous cheeks. What a cutie!

Well, I have started moving my sewing supplies into their room in the mobile home. Oh if I only had 3 totes of fabric, sigh!

4 sewing machines, 3 which work the 4th is in need of repair. About 20+/- totes of fabric, notions etc. This is from a life time of sewing clothes for myself and my girls and crafting and then of course working at a craft store.

Well... I'll take photos and post them when my sewing room becomes a reality :)

Good work. Your sewing room looks beautiful... hopefully mine will look similar someday!
