I've Wandered Back In.....


Before I got lost in real life, I worked on the sashing for the Farm Girl Vintage.

Then we decided to get new carpet for the bedrooms and the computer room.  We put it off as long as we could.  All my rooms were pretty organized, but the amount of stuff I had stashed in every corner was unreal.  We totally covered our family room and Micks pool room with all the junk.

First some things to my good friend Carol, then packed away stuff for the kids, and a couple of trips to the thrift shop to drop things off helped out some.
 Several days to remove, wait for the carpet, and more days to return everything to it's home.


Looks better without the card table, but it's so convenient.



The quilt I made Mom.


Most of my toys are gone.  This is all I kept.


New carpet with all the footprints....:)


Halloween quilt on the chair.  Master bedroom too messy to show.


This carpet is called Desert Sand.  I just love it.  We are having an area rug made for the family room of this same carpet, but it's not here yet.

That's about all that has been happening at my house.

Should start getting back to sewing soon.

Happy Days to you all.

Gorgeous, gorgeous - love the Desert Sand! And the dual computers!! And the window in your bedroom - golly that's gorgeous! I spy your butterfly, and a little stitchery on your design wall....*G* LOVE that hutch in the sewingroom, and your ironing table. I think your card table looks fine, and I love how you have it set up, that looks really convenient! Wonder if I could re-arrange my furniture again....just did it last week...

everything looking very spick and span now a lovely choice of carpet. Such a good idea how you have the sets f drawers with a worktop on them making a good working area. It must be so good to have a seeing room, I seem to have my stuff in every room of the house

Your new carpet is gorgeous Billie!!! And I know it's a royal pain to have to move stuff out and then put it all back again, but that's about the only way I ever get things sorted and updated - I have to be forced into it by something like laying new carpet LOL!!! You'll enjoy your new, reorganized area so much!
