Congratulations to Susan at Susan's Scrappy Domain who has won my Follower Giveaway! As soon as I get her mail information I'll be sending her this gift.
On another note I finally got to sit down last night and do a little stitching! Since I've gone back to work it seems as if time is definitely not on my side - sewing is a few minutes here and a few minutes there. I'm working on a wool/embroidery piece that I'm almost through with. It's from Primitive Gatherings, one of my favorite shops ever and someday I'm actually going to go there!
If you're like me and you love embroidery you need to run over to Sew We Quilt for all the details. The patterns are wonderful and there's lots of room to create your own unique piece. Jane from Jane's Fabric and Gifts is the cheerleader for that hop and she'd love to hear from you.
Yesterday I had my husband help me and we moved a little furniture in my bedroom. He hates that. I love that. :) I have my desk in that room because there's simply no place else to put it in this house but before the move I had it stuck in a corner. We moved it to the windows so when I'm at my desk typing my blog posts I can look up and out over the water, so if I seem to drift off into other thoughts it's because of my view!
And I created a bulletin board that I'm totally in love with - so bright and colorful, even though it's mostly covered with stuff that hides the bright and colorful. I took a piece of foamboard that I bought at Hobby Lobby (with a coupon of course), cut it into fourths, covered each piece with a different red and white fabric and then put them butted up against each other on my wall beside the desk. Everything at my fingertips, but in a fun way. :) I didn't do that yesterday...but I don't think I've shown it to you before.
Since I was already in the mood for cleaning and sorting I straightened up both closets too. Do you do that? Get started with one little area and it just grows on you? You clean out this drawer, which leads to cleaning off that shelf, which leads to.... But no more! Today I have 2 or 3 things I have to do but then I'm headed for the sewing room to work on It's All About Me!
