It is only January 5th and my life already feels out of control. We are having our hallways, kitchen and family room painted. It has been two days and this is what it looks like.

Tarps and paint supplies everywhere. It will be two more days before it will be finished. You don't want to see the other rooms where everything is stored until it can go back into these rooms.


I need quilt therapy. I can't even sew while all of this is going on. Please give me some suggestions on new fun sewing tutorials or QAL.



  1. Underneath all those tarps and clutter, it looks like you have a lovely home. Maybe you could look at this as getting a jump on spring cleaning:)

    Have you checked out the "Christmas Through the Year" club? It is a show and tell motivator to work on presents throughout the year. ( I have a link posted on my blog.) I'm already working the list of things I want to make for Christmas 2012.

    If you go to "Cluck, Cluck, Sew" blog and click on the "quilting tutorial" button under "my buttons and links" on the right side of the page you will find many options for sewing tutorials. Hope this gives you some ideas:)

  2. I've been there with the painting and it isn't any fun, but you'll love it when it's done! You live in Temecula? I love that area!!! I've joined this challenge and plan to make at least a block every month from the color palette.
