I made it through my first work week!






It feels like a big accomplishment..to me anyway. It has been a whole lot of years since I have worked full time and been a single parent. I could not do it without Julie that is for sure! I am exhausted. I have split days off, so both days have been pretty busy. I have everything put in its place now so today was a little more relaxing. I got up and made a pair of pj pants out of the cutest flannel...It is white with cherries and then I added a red with white dots cuff...I have them on now with red flip flops...I'm styling man..Last night I made a couple of painted fabric atc's on some rusted muslin and I also finished the last of my Easter eggs for the swap. I also took a picture of my craft room all organized since the first one I showed was a disaster and it may never look this way again. You can just see the back half of the room. I also have an art board, a bunkbed futon made up with quilts, more wall shelves with assorted things stacked up and my quilting frame and machine...It is a lot better than my previous basement set up that is for sure! Right now, I am going to go cut some fabric for a new quilt I am making and wind down a little bit. Thanks for all the kind words all of you! I sure do appreciate all my great blog friends....

Hi Melinda. I'm so glad things are coming together for you:) I have been MIA, things at work have taken up a lot of time lately, but I'm catching up in the blogging world. What magazine is your apron in? The other day I was looking at one in JoAnn's hoping to find your fabulous apron. I would love to have my hands on a copy:) Take care, your room looks great!
