Aaah. It took me almost two whole days, but it feels great. Now, I can actually relax when I sew. With some last minute Christmas crafts, it was getting really messy.
Do you ever thing you can craft your way out of a mess? Even though I know better, sometimes I think if I just make everything I have planned, all the patterns, all the fabric, all the thread, all the scraps - everything will just disappear.
That didn't happen, so I started cleaning first thing yesterday morning. I had grand plans to build a window seat, but I made the mistake of taking my husband with me to Home Depot, and he talked me into a much less time-consuming little bench with some storage. It works, but one of these days . . .
I finished at around 5:00 this afternoon. I could still organize the closet, my desk drawers, and the drawers in what used to be Addie's changing table and is now a craft room cabinet, but that's a project for another day. I've already started messing it up again by starting the last of my Quilting Bee blocks. I have four more sets to go. I have one more day off tomorrow, and the kids will all be at school/day care, so I can't decide if I should work on that obligation or do something a little more fun with my day to myself. Hmm. Decisions, decisions.
Happy New Year! Coincidentally, this is my hundredth post. Woo hoo. What better way to celebrate than with a clean craft room, don't you think?
