That's funny. I also don't have an OCD bone in my body either and I thought your hangers looked just fine.

Your comment reminded me of the time that I joined a quilt guild out of my area that was near a military base. Although there were a lot of non-military quilters, I hadn't realized how many people in the military quilted and belonged to the guild. Taking a couple of classes that the guild had sponsored, I soon realized that my style of quilting and organization was light-years different from the way they did things. They were very neat and structured in everything they did. I heard such descriptions of me over the time I belonged (of course, said in a very nice, polite way) as: flamboyant, organizationally impaired, whimsical, and my favorite comment was, "How do you think with all of the flies buzzing around in you head?" I had to scratch my head on that before I finally understood what was meant by that comment. To which I replied, "I can't think when my desk is clean. Disorganization is the best gateway to being creative." I smile whenever ever I think of being organized.

Being an ex military wife I can relate. I had to keep everything organized ready to move. No place is permanent for long. Not being organized would have been a mess to deal with and stressful when moving day came usually with a three day notice.

Thought I was the only one who got the crazy pms...

I roll what's left of my jelly roll back up and slap a rubber band around it, to hold it. Just did this last night, in fact.

I roll it back up and re-tie it with the ribbon. I then cry because it used to look so pretty and now it doesn't!

The crazy pms are the reason that I post almost nothing. I couldn't believe that people had the time to write to me and demand that I send them a copy of a pattern or tell me that I should have chosen another color...
