Would Someone Please Just Commit Me NOW?

Ok, yes I am just sick. These pictures are of my attic workspace that has gotten so unorganized and over stuffed with things Ive forgotten I even had. I finally decided its time to get up there and go thru everything. Today is the 2nd full day of working here and these pictures are what it currently looks like. I guess it gets worse before it gets better, but this is ridiculous! So far I have 2 drawers FULL thread, a full drawer of pens, pencils and markers, at least 18 pairs of scissors, 34 crochet hooks, and boxes full of needles, notions, and buttons. I feel almost sick to my stomach.

I had no idea I had accumulated so much. I havent even begun to work on the fabric yet. So far, Im just piling up the fabric, to be delt with later. I also have ton of unfinished projects that I will organize and document and then try to complete. My sister Kris has been an inspiration there.

This is my bed in the attic, filled with empty bins and unfinished projects.

Unfinished projects and fabric.

Someday this will be the fabric section of my workroom. Keep watching for progress! And watch my online shops, as I will be selling a ton of stuff too! will have most of it!

Midweek Girl Day!

Lucy relaxed today on the front porch. This is my little old shabby chic wooden potty chair. Look how she is sitting on the pot and her tummy is hanging down the hole. I cracked up!
Ive been so busy the last few days working on the committee to recommend a company to work with to build our little town a new website. Also working on our Back Alley Barn Quilt Project has taken tons of time.
Got a chance to have some girlfriend time today. Went to a thrift shop
and found a wholebox of goodies that I cant wait to share with you.
Also got a dozen bags of our new Saspa Sink Soak ready to sell in the shop or at market. More on that tomorrow!
Nearly time for bed, but favorite snack!
1 c plain yogert
1 c sliced strawberries
1 pkt sweetener
1/4 c semi sweet choco chips
Speaking of tomorrow, I will be working on home made laundry detergent to sell at the Market.. Stay tuned for details

The Difference

I got up early one morning and rushed into my day;
I had so much to accomplish that I didnt have time to pray.
Problems just tumbled before me, and heavier became each task.
"Why doesnt God help me?" I wondered. He answered " You didnt ask."
I wanted to see joy and beauty, but the day toiled on, gray and bleak;
I wondered why God didnt show me. He said " You didnt seek."
I tried to come into God's presence; I used all my keys at the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided, "My child, you didnt knock."
I woke up early this morning and paused before entering my day;
I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray.
