Do you ever get so busy that you lose tack of things? Ever feel like a chicken with it’s head cut off? The saying the faster I run the behinder I get ever ring true in your life? In many ways that has been my life recently. And in all this hustle and bustle I lost track of a quilt and my favorite ruler. Scary I know. I thought maybe some over zealous cleaner of my house (not many of those and if they ever do come along it is for a short burst and then they are gone) put it in the pile of Happy Chemo quilts and was donated. So I figured it went to a good cause and went on with my life. So imagine my joy when Ione, from Elaine’s Quilt Block called to say they had my quilt. I do remember having it on display there but I thought I had brought it home in May. Boy am I glad I was wrong. So happy to have it safe and sound at home.
Like I said before my favorite ruler had gone missing also. My sewing area was in utter chaos and I hoped it was buried in the mess. As my kids will tell you if one of their things goes missing I tell them to clean until they find it. Remember I told you those zealous cleaners don’t happen very often at my house? So I decided to put my own advice to work and headed into the battle zone that was my sewing room and went to work. I went through all my books.
Please excuse my unfinished walls, after doing our kitchen a few years back and not being able to cook I’m hesitant to doing my sewing room. I think I would go insane if I couldn’t sew every day. So I’ll wait until someone moves out and I can take over their room while we finish my sewing room. I organized all my UFOs.
Sorted all my fabric.
Found my missing ruler and put it back in it’s home.
See my children would be wise to listen to me. And now all the creative clutter is put in it’s place and I’m ready to start the process over again.
