I have taken control.....

.....over my sewingroom LOL It has been a total mess (again) for several weeks (months). I have been so busy both at work and at home so that my sewingroom has been so neglected. But this weekend I took control over it again.




And it feels so good. Now I feel happy walking into my sewingroom and I feel like sewing again. I know Hanne has done the same this weekend, and Stina has also problems with her sewingroom.
BTW Hanne is also having a giveaway on a new pattern, so head over to her blog and see what she has designed this time.
Another giveway is done by Abbie. She is giving away a wonderful quilt so head over to her blog and make a comment.

After finished cleaning up my sewingroom I made a mess out of it again LOL (just kidding) Deadline for sending the package in the Polkadot and Ric-rac swap is nov 15th and I had to finish sewing a little thing for my swap partner. This is a little sneak peak of what could be in the package.
And this is what I am sending ........ooooops.......I almost wrote her name. Or this is what I thought it would look like. When I put everything in the envelope to see what postage it would be, it turned out that it was just a tiny little bit overweight for a normal postage. So what do a girl do...........I unwrapped it and put it all together another way. I think the important thing is to send her everything I had put together. The wrapping paper is not that important. So now it is in the mail overseas to xxxxxx. I will show you a photo of it when she has received it......in about a week I guess :)
The name tags I had ordered was in the mail yesterday. And I am so pleased with it. Grmphhh....that reminds me I forgot to put one on my little gift for my polkadot swap partner. I am so pleased how they turned out.
This weekend I have enjoyed the company of my DD. She came home for a few days and we have had a great time together talking, shopping, watching movies, good food and just relaxed. She have worked on her photo schoolproject and I have been stitching. It was so good to have her back home for a few days.
Saying for today:
May the colors of your life be bright
and the threads in your life very strong


ps: I have been a very very bad commenter lately..........I hope things calms down very soon so I have time to place comments more often. But want to let you know that I read the blogs every day :)

How lovely to have your daughter home for a visit.

You seem to have been very generous with your ric-rac swap partner. Looking forward toseeing the great reveal.

I am blog-hopping through Chookyblue's SSCS list to see who else is playing.

Your sewing room looks fabulous, well done!!! I'm absolutely envious .... this means I must get in and do mine because at the moment it can only be described as (dis)organised chaos!!!! Eeeek!!!

I've been a bad commenter too. Too much going on. I'm wishing We would all call a comment siesta but I miss seeing what everyone is doing. I agree about the tidy sewing room. It helps my creativity.

Cheryl said...

Don't feel bad about not having time to leave comments my friend... We all prowl through dozens of blogs and read lots of little snippets. Even though we might not always leave comments, we've left our own fingerprint by visiting with that person and sharing their moments of fun! Relax and enjoy....
luv and hugs Cheryl

Thanks for the sneaky peaky into your swap gifts. Maybe your partner can just go look at the gifties all wrapped pretty before she opens the pkg. LOL
Sewing room looks great again!! Way to go.I need to be doing some of that cleaning myself. Instead I just moved my machine into the dining room. LOL!!!

Godt jobba, - et ryddig(ere) syrom gir rom for mer syglede, ikke sant?
Klar for å ta flere bilder og si noe mer om rommet ditt? *glis*

Jane said...

I think from my recent experience I need to ask how long you project this state of order to remain in place.

I put triumphant pictures in my blog of a tidied room and then I began sorting pansy and butterfly fabrics and needing larger crates and Oh dear! Somehow I have a mess again.

sandra said...

whitey said...
