Before...
After...

Nines' stash enhancement!
Had a great time at Sandy's on Tuesday. We organized her fabric and Sandy did a wonderful job at being decisive and choosing what she would keep and what she would get rid of. Took no time at all. Most of what she got rid of was added to my stash. I haven't had the time to sort through it but it got me to thinking about ways that I could better use my space and fabrics that I don't guess I'll ever get around to using. Fall organizing.
See, I had a serious allergy attack yesterday. No, nothing life threatening but I must have sneezed a 1,000 times! Wears a body out. Rebekah, who is 9, sent me to bed at 10am and I took a benadryl. Won't do that again as I slept the day away. What a waste, but I really couldn't function anyway. They are cutting the soy beans and you can see the plume of dust a mile away. It looks like rain, today, and I am joyfully anticipating it settling the dust down. As it is, I have shut the house back up and have the air conditioning running again. I am feeling better if a little stuffy headed and still dripping from time to time.
When I woke up from my drug induced sleep, I found that Bekah had cleaned my sewing table off and had also done some work on my counter in the quilting room. How sweet was that? Got me all inspired to sew- doesn't take much to do that! We did have a productive morning of school and canning salsa- black bean and corn. Might be the last of the summer. Today, I might just sit on the couch and crochet- a good rainy day project.

Wow, that's a lot of sneezing! Hope that doesn't happen again.

Isn't it fun to get fabric from a friend's stash. That has happened to me several times. Gives you inspiration to sew for sure.

Poor girl. That sneezing does wear a person out. Maybe it would be a good research topic for the kiddos?

Love that you're crocheting today!!! Maybe I'll join you for a little bit, later. ;-)

Love and hugs....

Isn't that Bekah an angel!!!!!
