Well, I've managed to fritter away a whole week since my home show. Honestly, I sometimes don't know how time gets away from me. This week I'd planned to put up Christmas trees and start decorating here my gathering room in preparation for the November show. I hesitated to do that because I thought more people were coming to shop this week. They hadn't exactly promised to come, but seemed very interested and asked if they might bring some friends along. I wanted things to look as nice as they had last Saturday, so I didn't take anything down. I waited all week, but no one came. When will I ever learn to do what is right for me and not worry so much about what others might think or do? I didn't sew a single thing this week because I didn't want to get all my fabrics and notions out and make a big mess if I had someone coming to the house. I know I should go ahead and do whatever I want or need to do, but it's often easier said than done.
The week wasn't completely a lost cause though. I did catch up on loads and loads of laundry and I browsed many of my crafting idea books and patterns. In fact, they're still stacked on my coffee table in the family room. I've made lists of things I hope to accomplish before the next home show and I already have some projects ready, except for the pricing. My daughter has again volunteered to make treats for a baked goods table and I have fliers printed and ready to be delivered in a couple weeks. I guess that's a good start. I'm just not as far along as I'd hoped to be at this point.
I have a lot of work ahead of me in the next few weeks so I best be getting to it. The upstairs sewing room needs to be straightened before I make an even bigger mess, and I need to take inventory of fabric and supplies before I jump in and begin again. Ok, I'm taking a deep breath here . . . I vow to work on that room tomorrow, take inventory, and complete at least 5 things. I'm actually anxious to get some holiday items sewn and I'll post some photos as I get things done. Wish me luck!
(Apparently, I still cannot upload photos to the text of this blog post so I'll add something to the sidebar.)
