Thank you Debbie, I feel that I am well on the way.

I finished hand sewing the binding on a large queen-size quilt. And mailed off my ornaments for the Ornament swap on MJF.

Today I want to make at least a small dent in cleaning up my craft room - I know where I can usually find things, but would be easier if more organized instead of stacks on stacks of project UFOs. LOL!

Linda, I feel ya!!! An organized craft room is much easier to work in, but not happening in my house until after Christmas. Good Luck!!!!

I need to tidy up my craft room very soon! :) It’s making me crazy! I can find things but it looks like a bomb went off in there! :)

Looks like us crafters all have the same craft room problems.

I would love to have a room to craft in. I have barely enough room to lay out and cut a clothing pattern. Luckily, there is a quilt shop nearby where I can rent the second-floor workroom all day if I want for $10. As soon as I can use my right foot again, I am there.

Theresa, I had something similar happen to me in my 20’s where a bad infection led to an ER visit, then the meds gave me anaphylactic shock, then because my body was weak I got another infection and the stupid doctor gave me the same medication that gave me anaphylaxis. I won’t go into the details but it did take me awhile to recover. So don’t push yourself. Rest and focus on things that nourish your body and your soul.

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

Shennandoah, Thank you for your encouraging words. I am taking it easy and going slowly back to what was my normal.

Here are some before pictures; hopefully, the after pictures will follow sometime, the sooner the better.



I need to cut up all the denim into squares to make a quilt, I ordered some kantha fabric pieces to adorn the denim shirts (they should be here soon), and I still have some yarn for cowls and scarves. That will make a dent in the clutter.

Linda, I love your craft room. I only have a craft closet lol! But it tends to get just as messy!

Theresa, I am so sorry to hear of all your struggles. Please take it easy and get feeling better.

Grace, I would love that so much! A girls crochet day would be wonderful for my soul!

Krista, the bee is so cute!!!! The teacher will love it.

Linda, Love your craft room. I think that is an universal look for craft rooms.... mine is always messy except for that rare few hours after clean up...

I picked up 6 Rodales Successful Quilting Library books from the library (8 for $1] and have been gleaning great ideas already. The one above is very handy when one needle runs out of thread.

I'm also moving forward a bit faster with this technique...

So now I'm working on basic quilting in areas and will add the details later.

The needle hint is super. It will sure eliminate the time it takes to stops, thread a needle, and quilt again. I could have used that last week on the binding of my UFO quilt.

I can't read the small print of the quilting hint, but I'm sure it is great hint, too.

In progressive quilting, you do the basic stitching first, then add the decorative stitches later. The third step is filling in for prize winning quilts. I'm still on step 1.

Thank you Grace.

The kids will be taking their teacher presents to school tomorrow. I am excited to see what they say. I need to finish up one last bit for a 3rd teacher tonight. I have been crocheting a graphgan pillow for one of my boys and it's taking so long to complete. I cannot wait until it's finished.

I stayed up late last night finishing the graphgan. I am so happy with how it turned out. It's the Transformers Autobot logo. But I went with black and yellow to represent Bumblebee, which is his favorite Transformer. I am just going to make the back of the pillow be striped black and yellow. This is probably my favorite crochet thing so far.

That is a great graphgan, Krista. Super job! I'm sure the teacher will love it.

Krista I am in awe, such wonderful crochet work you did. My son would love that graphgan even though he is grown, lol. I can’t master a basic crochet stitch let alone follow a pattern!

A day hemmed in prayer is less likely to unravel.
