Where Bloggers Create 2013

Just a little late to the party...I had it in my head to upload the pictures on Friday for Saturday? Not sure where I got that, but I am a day late. Here we go...

I haven't really changed a whole lot since last year. Mostly just moving things here and there and hiding things I don't want to look at. I really wish my rooms looked like this all the time, but when I sew I am messy. I tend to start multiple projects at one time and have them piled up and spread all over the rooms. I cut or trace 6-8 of one pattern at a time, move on to another and cut or trace those before I start sewing and tea staining all of them. Those all go in a pile before I start stuffing and get ready to put them together. Not a great system, but that's how I do it. I actually started sewing for my shows earlier this year instead of waiting till the month before! Hid all the body parts and mess for the blogger party. Have to drag it all out tomorrow.

I love antique photos and old purses!

Now that looks like extreme hoarding!

Farewell till next year!

Well, that concludes the tour of my sewing rooms for this year. As usual this was done with little or no help from my 2 digital cameras, my iphone and ipad, laptop and most of all blogger.  Just lost the entire post for 20 minutes, but retrieved it from drafts. Shouldn't be this stressful to put some pictures on a blog!! But like my brother, Rog always tells me it's probably OE....operator error!  Hope you enjoyed checking out my cluttered spaces and a big Thank you to Karen at My Dessert Cottage for doing this every year!!

I got my dates wrong and didn't get my pictures loaded yet for Where Bloggers Create!!!!!  I am working on them now....check back later today. Sorry I'm late!

I have been away for quite a while because things have been hectic around here.
 Since Christmas, my Dad had been having difficult breathing issues and we were really worried about him. After lots of Dr. appts and testing, he had to have a second open heart surgery. It was on March 7 and Mandy and I flew to FL with my brother, Rog to be with our parents. He had the surgery then had a really good day after. But, he developed metabolic acidosis and took a turn for the worse......We lost Dad on March10.
Such a SHOCK to us all. Dad was always busy and ready to help anyone do anything. He never like to sit still, always moving. Even though they lived in Florida, we talked multiple times a day. So close to him. It's hard to understand that we will never see him again. Just can't wrap my head around losing him. Don't know when it will sink in?

 I love you, Dad!

I have been AWOL on here since Thanksgiving! Still spending too much computer, tablet and iPhone time on Pinterest!! I have found so many great things there. I have been baking and cooking more because of it!  BUT, time to get into cleaning  and organizing the house and sewing rooms!  Actually, got my bathroom closet reorganized today. Yeah! More closets tomorrow!
