Back in the harness...

Morning... er... afternoon ladies!! I haven't been a very good blogger lately, have I? I guess I've had a bit of a creative block going on and it has taken me awhile to break down the block, find the reason, and get moving again. But I am moving again! I've discovered that I don't do well without a major goal in mind. Funnily enough, SharonB has blogged about goals in her "Time Management" post. If I don't have a goal, with a "theme" preferably, I don't do such a good job of following through and finishing.

It has taken a few weeks to come to this realization, and while I was working through that, I was working on my sewing room. I sorted all my beads by color and have them all tucked neatly away. I actually found the top of my work table (!) and cleaned off my cutting table (!!) and then, then I mentioned to a co-worker who does alot of sewing that I would take any bits of fabric and ribbons, etc. that she had laying around. Just the scraps and little bits of lace, y'know. Well, she came in to work with four (4!!!!) shopping bags stuffed with lace, beads, buttons and fabric. Boy, was I glad I asked!! ;0) Of course, then I had to use my newly cleared work areas to sort out the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. Now if I was a good blogger, I'd have pictures of the haul for right here; however, since my camera isn't working (like I thought it was) I don't have a piccie to share. Suffice to say, I scored!! (And I'll try and get a memory card that actually works so I can show ya'!)

I'm also putting my self on a blogging schedule. I'll be blogging every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. There... I figure if I actually put it on the blog, I'll do it. I'll introduce my theme on Wednesday, since I need to get that blasted memory card so I can take some pictures. Mostly I just wanted you to know that I'm here and I'm here to stay, dammit!!

Hee!

We will hold you to it, Marty.
Congrats on the score...and on unearthing your tabletops!

Sounds like a haul I couldn't refuse!

I have to schedule myself to do everything. Blogging, quilting, it all has to be plugged in in advance or the morning (or afternoon) just disappears and I didn't get anything done.

I am glad you found your table top! I will be looking forward to your new weekly routine - routines are great for getting stuff done!

I have gotten better about blogging, because I use it like a journal. I know it might get tedious for people reading, but it is what works for me. :-)

I always get excited when I see the cutting and work tables, then immediately cover them with a new project. So cleaning is a good way for me to find inspiration.
