You will be green with envy!!

Okay, how cute is this? Tom finally finished Shelby's sewing table. (Thanks honey:)! Now maybe we can get all of her (mine too!) fabric out of the kitchen. I am feeling really disorganized, ( a state I live in frequently). Shelby is following in my footsteps with her love of fabric, and with both of us with the same hobby we might have to get a bigger house, (just kidding ~Tom) or sew faster! Its still in the middle of the kitchen it will be moving to Shelby's old room as soon as I get it painted!! Now we will have 2 sewing rooms! do you think we will be able to contain all of our fabric?
Off to sew!!!

Tune in......,

Come join me and the girls of Good Things Utah on Tuesday November 24th. I will be doing the craft segment on the show (I can't tell you what it is, you will just have to tune in.) I have been on the show several times, but I get so nervous. For those of you who know me, know that I am a cheeseball, I try to act mature and professional, (ugh! a look that I can never seem to perfect.) I am never at a loss for words, but stick me in front of a camera and I become shy and speechless (I know the words shy and speechless have never been used to describe me!) So, please tune in and leave me a comment after and let me know you saw it!
See ya Tuesday!

Chaos or .....Creativity?

Okay, first let me state that I love that Shelby my daughter sews! I have a sewing room downstairs but it is small and I really don't like her using it. So for the past few weeks we have been sewing at the kitchen table, (since I don't cook, we don't need it to eat at it) but, she has decided to move her fabric out there also. UGH! this is what I came home to, deep breathe! The green thing on the floor is a sewing table I bought her (that my darling husband is taking his sweet time on!) Now, I know the "where women create" will probably want to come have a photo shoot here (please call first!). My dream is to have a studio like Monica at Happy Zombie or Ann at Bunny Hill, but until Shelby gets a handle on this it ain't gonna happen! We are moving her to the basemnet as we speak....Wish me luck!!
Organizational Challenged:)
PS~check out my new toy......the Bernina 820, (Thanks Nuttals:) I hate that it is smarter than me, but I love a good challenge!
