    need to clean up my sewing room with Thanksgiving here!

    I'm working like a "mad hatter" trying to get projects done for Christmas (my own), 3 customer memory quilts promised by early Feb (have taken apart the shirts & pants but haven't even cut them yet!) and getting a couple of quilt show entries ready by end of March--which haven't even been started beyond the purchase of fabric and pattern decided. Soo...with son's family arriving Wed night for the long weekend, if the oldest boy doesn't want to sleep with his 2 youngest brothers, it means I need to clear off the twin bed I use for my "store-all" in my sewing room--have 3 days and DH to doc, grocery and plan on just forgetting about cleaning!

    Phew, my head is spinning for you. You certainly have a lot on your plate. I hope it goes as smoothly as possible.

    I'm in the same boat as you...my current sewing space is in our spare bedroom with a queen size guest bed. My BIL and SIL are coming Saturday after Thanksgiving from Ohio to spend a few nights... the bed is currently loaded with my scrap bins for a project I am working on and a couple of quilt tops that still need borders.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I turned my dining room into my quilt room & my sister, her 2 girls & their 3 kids are coming to spend Thanksgiving with us. I need to get busy too!

    I was getting dizzy and I certainly need no help the way things are going.

    I am on walker as is my hubby. We have 8 house guests coming. Since we are planning to sell the house this spring, this will be our last at our house, so it's bittersweet for all of us. We are the only "grandparents" the 5 kids have, so we try to keep up with them. Just hope we survive the onslaught.

    Thanks for all your encouragement--after I got home from grocery today (DH blew out a knee on Friday so not much help there) I played in sewing room--actually got binding on a couple of Christmas presents, have hand work for tv time on presents, and cleaned up the clutter in the sewing room. The bed is almost open! So if you ignore the piles of fabric in the corners, it's ready! I'm so glad I got my DH a Roomba last year for Christmas--he normally does vacumning cause of MY knees, but neither of us can do it now!

    I am thankful for millions of things...like the sun in the morning and the moon at night....a gentle rain and when my 'i ' key works on my computer, the first try.................and that a door closes off all my sewing in progress !!!

    sometimes when you take big bites and eat too fast you get indigestion... Life is to be enjoyed and we need to slow down and "smell the roses".

    You do have a lot on your plate and I wish you peace and joy. If some things don't get done what is the worst thing that could happen.

    I don't take anything after December 1st if they want it by December 22. I pace my work because I want to enjoy family...had 30 for Thanksgiving... I just got 2 large quilts this morning but they will go on the list for January.

    I don't have a bed in my sewing room and like Sunsmittensmile my sewingroom is off limits with the door closed.
