At Last - Progress

I hope everyone in the US had a good Thanksgiving weekend and the rest of you lovely ladies had a great regular weekend. ;0) We certainly did, I do believe I may have cooked the best turkey dinner of my life, everything was great... yay, me! It's such a crap shoot every year as to whether I'll get through the holiday without a stumble or two that it feels good to get it all together finally. Of course, it was just Glenn and I and our nephew Mark, but still... even the leftovers have been good! Of course, having nearly broken my arm to pat myself on the back, I'll surely screw something up in the next day or two... LOL!

Anyway, we have had some progress in the sewing room. All the bits and pieces of Crazy Quilting fabric were sorted. The 12 bins went from this:
Sorting - before
to this:
Sorting - after
to this:
Sorted 11-2008
last weekend. Then, this weekend, I managed to sneak a cup of coffee in without dire consequences and got all motivated and did some organizing and cleaning. In fact, several flat services have been discovered lurking amongst the piles of fabric. It's actually quite a wondrous thing to behold:

In the meantime, here's our puppy dogs, Rocky & Java enjoying the sunshine today:

Flat surfaces? You found flat surfaces? How odd! =) Love the 12 bins of color. I see that the pink thing is too large for a tote bag, now that I see it on the wall. I'm glad Allie asked about it.
