The Pens lost badly and they're done for this season. This is the season that I thought....most people thought that they would go all the way. But for whatever reason, they played badly. Horribly. The Bruins are deserving of this sweep. I'm bitter. I'm embarrassed because they played so badly but I also feel sympathy for what surely is a huge disappointment for the team.
But anyway, I'm back because I need this place to vent. I need to get back to reading what everyone else is doing. I've missed writing. Just as my fingers miss stitching after I haven't done it for a while, my brain misses typing out all the things that rattle around in my brain.
So, I'm back!
I'll start by showing what I've been doing these last few months.
When I last blogged, it was right before Easter and I had to get the dining room cleaned out. I did get hubby to put up a display board for me so that all of my finished work could be hung properly.
I don't have a picture right now of the candle mats hanging ... I took most of them down to send away for a quilt show and have yet to hang them back up. Later today, I'll hang the models back up and take a picture to show how nice the finished project turned out.
It's perfect for me because now I simply pin the finished candle mat on the board for display instead of flopping anywhere it would fit.
Once that was done and Easter was over, I was motivated to get more organization done in the house. My "wool room" which is the room where all of my wool is stored was a disorganized disaster!
I emptied it completely out, painted, had new carpeting installed and bought some shelving.
Here are some pics of the work in progress ....
There are more renovations to come soon. The dining room & living room are next and I hope to have that finished by the end of summer. The upstairs sunporch will be redone in early fall.
I've been so busy with catching up on things around the house, I took a small break from stitching and designing. I do have a new Halloween design ready to go though and I hope to have it shown on my website by the end of the day and announced/described here on the blog by tomorrow.
Here's a sneak peak of what's to come!
Happy Day everyone and I'll be posting the new Halloween design tomorrow!
