No Arrg doesn't mean that pirates have hijacked my blog it means I am frustrated.

I feel like everything in my life is getting backed up and I don't know how to stop it. Just when I start to see the light I get dragged back down. I'm wearing a life-vest and still drowning..arrgggg

I'm sorry that this blog has turned into a never ending whinefest...arrrrg
I'm just so frustrated...arrrgeady arrg

I have been trying to get my sewing room clean, trying being the operative word. I get side tracked too easily and things end up getting more messy. I honestly start the day on track and by the end of the night it looks like the whole house got ransacked. It's..... well

But i have made some progress. I bought this shoe organizer and I am re-purposing it as a fabric holder. I have moved my Fat quarters out of their cramped home and into here.

I was then able to turn my fq stand into a wip home....see one drawer half full, an empty drawer and another crammed full one

I also hung up a few of my quilt tops with their backing fabric....yes they are next to my team Canada hockey jersey and hubbies team Switzerland Jersey and an old bridesmade

so bit by bit its going somewhere.
