Happy Mother's Day !!
Just a note while the DH and and DD go out to grab some more ingredients for a lovely meal they have planned for me tonight! I have been so busy that I don't just wish for more hours in the day or more days in the week, I want a mini me to start helping out around here! We redid our kitchen this winter and we kept the old cabinets and counter tops. My hubby is putting some in the garage and shed for organizing and I am getting some for my quilting studio! I have been feeling very cluttered and overwhelmed by all of the stuff I have accumulated and while very pleased with all that I have been able to complete since joining OPAM I have also started to realize that I will not be able to "do it all" and that I need to go through it and make some tough decisions . . . A task that previously would depress me, so I would do a bit and then feeling so overwhelmed - do NOTHING for a very long time. Not very productive. Well, I am done waiting for helpful little quilting elves, gnomes or fairies to work their magic while I sleep, I have rolled up my sleeves and have gone to work. The pictures are of some before and some during - which is why it looks like my room was ransacked! Hopefully you will see the "after" photos soon! Not today though - I am getting a pedicure from my DD and I am going to watch a couple of very girly, Jane Austenish movies and eat a yummy meal later! Happy Quilting! Poor Hermione! She walked into the studio, saw the mess everywhere (including her kitty tower) and fell over in a dead faint! Drama kitty! : )
