Working from the home can be kind of stifling. I haven't quite figured out how to keep moving in a one direction. I will start a project,then pretty soon it is meal time or laundry beckons.
I decided today was a day that I needed to boost my creative input. So, off to Barnes & Noble I went. There is something about the smell the of a new book that excites me. I always enjoy the magazines and a few always find their way home with me. Sometimes I could care less what the story says. I can make up my own story just viewing the photos.

Choices have always been hard for me to make. I always want to see all sides to the situation and ask several people their opinions. I have always envied the person who can make a snap decision and never look back.
The only time I can make decisions and not have others opinions sway me is when I am creating. When I am creating I just know or feel what is right. I guess that is why I am always happy with what I created because it is a part of me.

Went to bed last night with all kinds of plans for this morning. Unfortunately the blower for the furnace decided to malfunction last night. Woke up freezing this am. The furnace guy has come and gone and slowly heat is returning to the house. I did spend this am going through some more of the clutter we dropped from the shop move. Sooner or later the house and my sewing area will be back in order. I have been working on a new project "No Two Alike".

I am trying to straighten the house enough to display a little Holiday spirit. As I am plucking through everything we brought home from the shop I am finding items to throw together and decorate. This is one part I really miss about the store being able to display.

My husband has been working on updating the website. He is trying to get more of my patterns on there and a few kits. It is really taking shape. He tells me I have around 100 patterns now. Wow! I didn't realize that I had done that many. I always tell people maybe around 50 - 60.

Ran out of kits for "#1Pine Tree Strip" kits at the Houston show. Shipping them out today to all the lucky purchasers. I don't know about you but I love getting packages in the mail. Even though I know what I ordered there is just so much anticipation as you open it up.
