For some unknown reason I woke up at 3:20 am. I didn't even remember there was a 3:20 am! I'm strictly an 8 hours a night person so you should be glad you weren't around me this afternoon! C*R*A*N*K*Y! And I had a big argument with the Publisher program on my work computer. Work crap ...blah blah blah.
Once it was obvious that I wasn't going back to sleep I did straighten up my sewing room a little. Good Grief! I have 4 'paper boxes' - you know the kind that comes with 10 reams of paper in it - anyway, I have filled FOUR of them with scraps. Not ALL my scraps - just my favorites! :> I had Bonnie Hunter's system going earlier this year. All my squares were in plastic shoe boxes and strips in under-the-bed-type storage. Then I had to sort family photos and those shoe boxes were a good size to use. The squares never made it back into those shoe boxes. Then I threw all the strips into one box when I taught the string pieced Christmas stockings ... I think they're expanding; I may need an intervention! Yes indeedy "Scrap Happens!"
Next Tuesday I'm having knee surgery. I'm hoping to get my mojo back faster than last year and my first knee! But I probably won't be blogging too much for the first month. [I don't want to whine excessively!] I'm hoping to start sewing string blocks the first week I'm back home ... but then again - I'm hoping to lose 20 lbs by morning too! :> I'll probably be lurking around the web and dreaming up so many ideas for more quilts on my to-do list. My favorite thing to do while recovering last January was to look thru my friends' quilt magazines! I had just about enough brain power to flip thru magazines ... but not enough to be able to keep track of the story in a fiction book. I'll let you know!
