Another week, another project….. or two….
Being home after 32 years working outside the home brings on many new challenges, like shopping and cooking! I have done a lot of coupon shopping in the past few months and did not have it organized. So I kept buying some of the same items. I knew I needed to inventory it and get it organized.
Then the other night DH requested that the TV room become his man cave. What??? Well I guess I did have my own room and have for several years. Yes he needs his own space (luckily I can still use the treadmill and watch TV). So he requested I start getting rid of anything that is mine out of the room. I have to admit he did spend time last Sunday hanging up these pegboards for me, enabling me to get started on my disaster of a sewing/craft/office room:
So DH hung these:
Which helped me to accomplish this:
My other accomplishment today was to take this:
add in this:
and you get this:
Okay not that exciting, but at least I know where everything is and I have an inventory list. I have 4 sets of queen sized sheets, put into matching pillowcase! Oh and I definitely need new towels! I bought the white ones when Mervyn’s closed, 2 years ago? I like white towels and will keep buying more of them, getting rid of the old colored ones as I go. While not as pretty as a lot of contributors, it is keeping me going on this very needed challenge.
I made breakfast and lunch every day this week for DH (except Monday when I woke with a migraine) and sewed the quilt top for my almost 2-year-old neighbor. I have decided to add another border of 2-1/2 inch squares of white alternating with 2-1/2 inch squares from this fabric line Moda Bliss by Bonnie and Camille.
I did much better this week with pain, pacing myself, until Wednesday’s shopping excursion to town. I am going to have to stop trying to cram in all my errands in one day, it is just too much. But live and learn! I am looking forward to seeing what everyone accomplished this week and tackling this:
This is the new man cave, taken from the doorway. Specifically I need to work on this:
Okay I am lying. I am not looking forward to it. But it needs to be done. Hopefully by next week it will be all done!
