my work place

this is my sewing room under the eaves. as I am right under the roof there is no head room so watch you don't bump your nut!
I do all the time & it huurts!
as you walk in from the door, we're facing north.I love my picture window! all the light I could want & no sun!

this is the east wall, & as I am in the throws of creativity ( throws being the operative word!) things tend to get a little messy! watch your step!

most of the south wall is taken up by the little alcove & the door so this is
what there is of the south wall & the other part of the west wall.
as you can see I have quite a few porcelain dolls. they were my grandmother -in-laws & I love each one of them!

this is of course, the last room that gets any attention, so my attempts at organizing it have been sporadic, to non-existent!
it's also so small (8x8) with sloping walls that storage is at a premium.

I have been peeking at some of the other storage systems from the ladies blogs in CQ4N , collecting idea's .

maybe some day I'll be able to incorporate them into mine!
but for now I have to paint the porch!)

how soon they grow!

It seems like just yesterday that this little guy was running around the house, getting into things.
now look at him!
He's 16 & going off to JROTC camp he will be away from home & for a whole week I will be "boyless".
they grow up so fast!
He wants to take my best friends daughter out on a date when he gets back.
A date! EEP!
STOP! youre growing up too fast!
for me at least!

summer has arrived

well It's definitely summer now!

Chicago just started hitting the 90's consistently for the last week
( thank goodness no humidity yet!) & we finally put up the pool! there's nothing quite like the cool water of a pool to sozzle in at the end of a hot summer day!

& having somewhere to put the kiddies for part of the day isn't such a bad thing ether!

Finally! pictures of my kiddies from the sil's wedding!

don't let the picture fool you the were having fun!

& this handsome devil is my son with his cousin Lily
The happy family!

Driving & CQ

Oh, Goodness! I promised to let everyone see what I was doing on the trip out to Boston & I plumb forgot! bad Flora!

I thought I would get more done & I'm a little disappointed that I didn't do more!

This little bit of trimming I did driving through the first half of Indiana.

oops! sorry, the peacock is sideways I forgot to turn him. he came to me while going through the second half of Indiana I finished him halfway through Ohio.

I finished the face & sre going down hill ( no wonder the eyes are closed!)

the rest of the seam treatments I did while watching the children try to drown each other in the hotel pool in Kingston N.Y.

The seam treatments here were also done poolside while watching the water babies, cavort around around the pool like so many dolphin.
I was not feeling very creative on the way back to Chicago so I read instead.
all in all a lovely trip.
btw I don't drive my DH does!)
