I can’t believe summer is almost over. It sure is going by quickly. As you know I am moving my sewing/craft room upstairs to a spare bedroom. I started moving all my stuff the end of June. But, between having my granddaughters for a visit (which is never long enough), going on vacation and getting a nasty case of pertussis (whooping-cough) (which is still hanging on) and which is irritating my sciatica, it is taking much longer than I had planned to complete the move.
I really like my new area. I have more light and it feels cozy and comfortable. In my old room I had plenty of space and room for all of my supplies, but it just wasn’t as inviting or as cozy as I wanted. Now, I enjoy relaxing and being able to create in my new space. I am still trying to find room for all of my supplies. I am utilizing many space-saving techniques , but it is not easy when you are trying to figure out more ways to put an elephant in a shoe box. It will all work out – just not as quickly as I had hoped.
On the up-side, I have now gone through every box and supply I own. Everything is organized and neatly put away. I have found things I forgot I had and I got rid of stuff I no longer wanted. I am getting a little of my oomph back and I am ready to start creating! I made it to JoAnn’s for their pattern sale and bought a few dog clothes patterns. I will be seeing what I can come up with. Hopefully what I make will fit at least one of my helpers.
On the reading side, I also got to the library over the week-end. I picked up a couple of books that looked good, but none were #1 in the series so I came home and ordered the books through the interloan system. Hopefully I won’t have to wait too long.
