Friday’s Accomplishments!

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:

and this:

add in this:

and 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!
