Updates to Sewing "Room"

At work they go through the library rooms the students study in during the year and we get to pick and choose before the items get donated to the Thrift Store. I grabbed this small bulletin board and...

...this wonderful caddy (it spins) to keep sewing stuff hand and I Love it What a find!

Lastly was the addition of a fan. I have no heat which I can deal with layering up, but the heat I need help. This is helping me with my 15 minute projects.

just because I Love you...

What can I say?
I've been through a lot the last few months and my wonderful husband sent these.

What I've been doing

So I haven't posted in forever. I do that sometimes, but thought I'd let you know some things I've been doing. I finished the pillows I started for my sisters family for last Christmas. I made a choice to not put myself under pressure to sew every gift this Christmas as it didn't work last year. Trying to take it slow in my 15 minutes of sewing a day and not worry if it's not perfect. I have a really hard time doing that! I did make a new nametag for our monthly meeting of the quilt guild. This month four members showed their completed or in progress Dear Jane quilts and they are stunning. I'm starting to look at some things for our home.

Speaking of home we have painted the front porch and Mike painted the bedroom. I'm still getting used to the fact that we might not be moving to China because the house has not sold.

I'm missing my Mom, but my sister and I are contacting each other more. My son is struggling with a possible loss of his job. My foot isn't healing as I think it should. I'm trying to make it until we go to the beach.

I'm just so thankful to know I'm not in charge God is and he's going to help me get through everything.
