January Blahs.......

Last week was one of those crazy weather weeks in the south, swinging temperatures that always bring with them a wealth of "crappy germs" that flourish.  The kind that everyone tries to avoid, me especially, mainly because we are too busy to be "under the weather".  Well I wasn't so lucky, thank goodness Kristin is in-between her battles with being down and under...only one of us can go down at a time.  As a result I haven't been any help over the last couple of days.

Today I walked into my sewing studio to retrieve "something"...forgot what, when I saw the room.  So I took some photos to show what happens around here.  The problem as I see it, is also what I love about the room...flat work surfaces. 

They collect "junk" it is pretty junk, but junk all the same and the thought of sorting through all that "junk" well that made my head hurt more.   Flat surfaces come in many sizes.....
My white felt design wall is frequently used as the backdrop for taking photos, so I found some extra "pretties" occupying the room.

Guess Kristin finished photographing, sent the photos' out and then forgot these were left behind.

So now you can get a feel for why I forgot what I was looking for...I admit I turned around and walked out, back to my recliner and a nap. 

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

Beginning 2018......

A new year, wow, time to gear up for the year to come.  We have discussed many things we would like to do this year, hopefully we will accomplish many of them.  Stay tuned! Once we start doing the shows the end of February we are pretty much continuously on the go....so during this time we typically try to restock as much as possible and produce what we will need for the first six months.

This is what my work space looked like last night ...

I felt like I was having to tunnel my way out....my sewing machine is in there somewhere....I know it is. 

Once I found the door "out", this was the view over my shoulder.
Back to prepping prior to dyeing up the next items on the list.

More to come!
