I bet you wonder what I've been up to................

Well, the kids are coming to town.....all of them!  Well, all the grands that is and their chaperones! LOL!  I knew my daughter was coming in August but I didn't know my son was coming with his new significant other who I have not met yet.  I have talked to her on the phone though and she is a sweetie!  But I was in the middle of cleaning and organizing and now I need to get "a move on" big time!  Presents to finish and a house to clean and food to prepare.  So, you won't be seeing me out here too much other than to "document my cleaning frenzy"! LOL!
I started organizing my fabrics and sewing things as it has taken over my dining room and I think we might be needing it.
I cleaned out one closet in the middle room and this morning (I was up at 3:30..I think I'm starting to panic) I went to the Dollar Store and got plastic containers to "organize" and/or "divide and conquer".
So far, it seems to be working but I still need more containers...will I ever have enough?  These are great for fat quarters and I love "locking lids".  I need about 3 more though as I have Black, Green and 30's fat quarters.  I may dig up more too before the day is over!
I only have a few charm far.......
Then there are WIP's which I want to keep the fabric together as it was specifically bought for certain projects.  These containers are working well for those.
It seems I still have "miles to go before I sleep" though..........
Wish me luck! 
Happy Trails!



  1. Those containers look good! Our dollar store does not have them...I looked for some yesterday. You have a good start and you better put on your a couple of days before they arrive!! :)

  2. How exciting that your family is coming! I know you have longed to see them. And how nice to get things organized. It will make it nice when you get ready to move, too! Enjoy your week sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

  3. Wow! It looks to me as if you've made great progress on your oganizing. I need to get some of those locking storage containers when I'm able to be up and around more. Have fun with your family.

  4. You are getting it all very well organised, Sam...... It is a hard task though and does take a lot of energy! Good luck with all your cleaning and preparations for your lovely family visits!
