    I have started to build my stash since I have decided to take up quilting again. I have been buying material off the board and from some local stores too. They were taking over my living & dining rooms while I wait to get my sewing room finished.
    I decided tonight I would do something. I started measuring and labeling each piece and pinning a label on each one. I have a dresser with six large drawers and I am going to put material in each drawer. I cleaned out one box in the living room.
    I have a 9 foot closet in that room that I am going to use to hang yardage under clear plastic bags.
    Tonight I also cut out two Christmas stockings and have them ready to embroider. I made a baby doll quilt with yellow ducks on blue for a little girl I know. I also stuffed my little green turtle. He is so cut and not so little after all.

    I needed to be sewing/quilting but I just did not feel up to it. I will start tomorrow. Maybe Dustin will get it before Christmas as one man said he had until the 11th to mail his overseas.

    Sounds like you are busy. I sort of stop sewing/quilting in Dec. just so I can clean the house and decorate it.

    WOW, you have been a busy Santa helper! I bet it feels great to be so organized. Right now i have empty decoration boxes sharing my sewing area and it's feeling a little cramped. I really Love Christmas but i like the New Year also for getting organized.

    Donna, did you get your meds yet?? That will make a big difference in how you feel and how much you'll feel like accomplishing! Take care.

    No but they should be here by Monday any way. I use a mail order pharmacy through my husband's wprk called Express Scrips. I save quite a bit this way.
