Someone told me I seemed busier now that I have quit my job than when I was working. And they were right! I got it into my head that I needed to clean the master bedroom closet 3 days before Christmas - really? But, I whipped through it in one day and all was well. On Wednesday, I tackled my stitching room closet. It was stuffed to the gills and it needed help. Here are some pics of my poor room after the closet was unpacked.
And after ~
And I've been shopping! And there is some stash from Santa. Would you like to see that too? The first picture are my supplies for my SAL with Jayne (@ Henley's Landing). We both fell in love with this snowflake and you know how that goes!
I got linen for 4 other projects too. Then there was a sale at my favorite stitching shop. Plus Santa. Looks like I don't need fabric anymore!
And before I go and forget, here's a picture of us Christmas Morning. Aren't we just a good looking bunch - lol.
My room isn't quiet back together. Logan got a filing box for me at Christmas. I just got the hanging files yesterday. If you look closely to picture #2 you'll see it under some framed stitching by the bookcase. I took all my patterns from the 3-ring binders and now have them in the files. Which caused me to rethink my 2012 to-do projects. Because I found a pile of patterns from fall that were never put away properly. My new list of kitted projects has grown. Not only that but now my cabinet filled with stitchy stuff needs to be organized again.
Somehow I think 2012 will be full of organizing and cleaning. The hall and front closets are looming over me and calling my name! Then there are the cabinets in the living room and the basement is in shambles again. Then the kitchen...oh, my poor kitchen. See, my list just grows and grows.
Well, I think I'm going to relocate and write up my last post for the year. Stitching goals from 2011 recap and 2012 plans. I might even get over to the Up for a Challenge blog and post my year end results. Might.
A new year is about 32 hours from now. Please be safe and have a Happy New Year.
