Feeling much better know, sometimes I think I just need to take a couple of days to just be.  Hang out in bed, nap a bit here and there...and not work on anything.

Unfortunately, the view from my bed was pretty bad.  I have a roll top desk, and it is a mess of paperwork, felt, thread, newspaper clippings, etc.  The top of it is covered with finished Critters, and Works in Process.  Tonight when I get home, that is my project.  It won't take long, of course, it's just a matter of putting things where they belong.

Next stop will be my sewing room.  I have got to come up with a good storage system for my felt, and scraps of felt.  And buttons, and shipping/packaging supplies, yarn, etc.

...and I have pics to take and descriptions to write and listings to list, and a ding dang fish tank to daughter and family will be here in about 3 weeks!

All those "ands!"  Seems pretty clear to me that I've been lacking in my ability to put things away.  At Christmas I was legitimately busy with custom orders (thank goodness), but now...well, I have no excuse.

So, when you think of me this evening, you can envision me walking back and forth across the hall from my bedroom to my sewing room, or standing at my work table sorting felt, or draining the fish tank so I can give it a good scrubbing...those are my goals for this weekend, and I will accomplish them all.

But...while I'm at work, I will proceed to stitch up a Valentine Critter.  :)

Play Nice


  1. Be sure to drink lots of fluids and don't forget to eat... sounds like your gonna' need the energy! :) As for ideas for storing your felt.... I have a friend that attached old wooden crates to her wall/stacked them, then nicely organized her fabrics ... goes from floor to ceiling ... She refurbished them first of course ... if you have the space... sure works great for her... on the top of said boxes, you will find all her creations/dolls ect.. :)Good Luck to you Cindy and I sure hope you get to feeling 100% ♥♥

  2. Sounds like a full weekend! I still haven't managed to get my Christmas Decorations put away...they're all in one place, just not in the container! Gotta work on that! But, the rest of the house is fairly clean! And with me, that's saying a lot! Glad to hear that you're feeling more like yourself!

  3. Good luck! Just don't over do it. My sewing room is my kitchen/dining room. I find myself organizing and re-organizing...then before I know it, its a mess again!

  4. Before and after pics are a super idea!!
