a week of organizing and recuperation

Good morning peeps!

I apologize for being a bit behind the blogging lately - my only real excuse is illness - I've been struggling to appear 'normal' (whatever that is.... anyone who knows me knows I'm NOT normal!) while suffering from a nasty head cold that was trying - almost successfully - to become bronchitis.  I think I have successfully won this round - I slept through the night last night for the first time in.... weeks!

Last week, dd (Traci) came to visit for Thanksgiving week.  While she was here, she offered to 'sort out' my office... if you've been to my house, you know this was no small offer.  My office has been impassable for about a year.  I had a very narrow path to the printer, which was becoming more of an obstacle course than a path, and I was (and AM) extremely grateful for her help.  She is and always has been a good 'sorter' - she did sorting jobs for me since she was a wee little toddler, it has always come naturally to her.  So, my office is now close to beautiful.  I'm inspired to make new curtains and maybe even remodel the bulletin board.  I'd love to show you what a great job she did, but the memory chip for my camera is now travelling with her - safely tucked into her laptop - so I'll be picking up a new one while I'm out grocery shopping today.

Last year she helped me sort my yarn stash - a major accomplishment, too! 

this is the yarn stash which is now stored neat and tidy under the bed!

I'm a very fortunate mom, indeed!


  1. I need your daughter to visit me. I hope to get my studio organized some time soon. Christmas decorating has to come first!

  2. Hope you are feeling better! And don't worry, normal didn't even cross my mind!LOL

  3. Somewhere in that almost beautiful, almost uncluttered office is your inspriation to make binder files for the pile of quilting-related papers. Maybe it's in the new curtains! Hurry up & get those made! :)

  4. It looks like the curtains will be waiting until the New Year - lots of work in progress to accomplish first!


Love to hear from friends, quilters, fiber folk, and family members.
Leave a note and say hello!
