Hi again. Did you miss me?
Santa is from the flea market this morning. It has been 70 degrees here for days now. It's wierd to be at the flea market the last weekend in November in Missouri. Of course, in Florida, we went year round.
Jack is now residing in the "blue room." It has been a ridiculous amount of work, but totally worth it. His room looks great in there with the blue. Ignore the lack of proper curtains, they are in the pipeline. The chair under the window is now the best seat in the house, and he has spent many hours asking if we can sit and read in his chair.
Remember this? I was terrified of moving him. It is the best thing we have ever done. For 2 years I have not been able to sew a stitch or even use the bathroom because you couldn't walk down the hall while Jack was sleeping. I am finally free! Free! I can move about as I please.
And my beautiful new sewing room. Everything is sorted, folded, organized. And NOT piled up to the ceiling. I need to move up the curtains a touch, the tabs are too low, and it is a bit more crowded since it is the smaller of the two bedrooms, but otherwise it is heavenly. Clearly the nosey cats think so too.
My favorite, favorite part of my new room. A patchwork bulletin board. I am clearly patchwork obsessed at the moment. I love that it gets some of my pretty fabrics out of a drawer, I love that have a place to tack up the sweet cards some of you have sent me, I love that I have a place to keep all those little applique patterns and inspiring magazine photos, and so forth that are constantly being lost. It's swell.
Too much work this weekend, time to go read a magazine.
P.S. Thank you for the well wishes for Jack, he is improving, but still not himself.
