I Can't Believe I'm Doing This!

I can't believe I'm doing this! I'm posting a picture of part of my stash. This is the most organized part, there is no way I will show you the rest. Not right now. I've been in the process of getting my sewing room like I want it for a very long time. On Friday, Crystal and Mike brought me a stack of totes to borrow so I could sort things the way I want them, get them out of the room, rearrange the way I want it and then fill it back up again.

Just in time for me, Judy L is having a Show Us Your Stash! challenge. There are lots of links to quilter's stashes. Of course I had to go look and I clicked on gardenpat's link. Let me tell you right now, I am so stinking jealous of her organization that I want to go in my room right this minute and pull everything out and start over. I've only looked at 3 stash links so far and I'm afraid to look at the rest of them. But I will! I need all the inspiration I can get right now.

But not today, we are going to work outside. Today is the last nice day for a week or so. The rain is returning to the Pacific Northwest. I'm kind of happy about that but kind of sad too. I want to be stuck in the house with no garden chores to do.

Today we will work again on the firewood. Yesterday, Doug, Lacey, Jonah and Elliot worked like demons. The boys-Jonah, 5 and Elliot, 3 1/2-learned to run the splitter with Poppy. Up and down the lever moved. Soon they knew when to push up and when to push down. Doug ran the chainsaw and the ax, while Lacey stacked it in the woodshed. I helped but felt very inadequate so I cooked lunch. Crystal took pictures for me and was our water girl until it was time to take the little ones home for naps. I think I should have been in charge of naps, I could have shown them how it's done.

So I'm hoping to get a big start on my room tomorrow. That's after I post what's on my design wall and do my quilt for an hour. There's a new club around the quilting world and I'm proud to be a member. I am a Judy L Junkie!

I cannot believe that I did this either - I feel your pain!

Just think of all the fun it's going to be sorting and caressing all that fabric when you go through it! blessings, marlene
