SO JUST WHAT DID I DO WHILE MY HUSBAND WAS AWAY?

I certainly wasn't posting. I definitely wasn't sleeping (had only about 3 hours of sleep a night...truly miserable). I am hoping when he comes back that I will get some sleep.

Because ladies and gents, you are looking at a very well kept woman!! I have such awesome sons that have always taken such good care of me when their dad was away. Now that I am alone when he is gone every bump wakes me up and my mind does horrible things to me....so yes, this kept woman is looking forward to her man coming home.


SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO JUST WHAT DID I DO? I cleaned my sewing room.

I got rid of one of the long tables (was just a catch all). so this is the view as you are coming into my sewing room. I need to go and buy some baskets for my piles on the table....and I need to work on a few small piles but this is a 360 from what it was before.

Then to the left is my row of fabrics and you all have seen them.


Then I took the one chest out of the closet (put the scraps of material and batting in there, what an eyesore).....and of course moved my bookcase. Believe it or not, I just organized that bookcase....hummm

I am going to work on it alittle more....won't my husband be surprised. He won't be able to come in and say....Barb, you have one big mess in here anymore...well.....atleast for now.

Royce you won the grab bag, email me with your address. A big thank you to everyone out there for your interest in my reject of a bag.

Nice sewing room Barb. I too feel the same when my hubby is gone. Sleeping pills work good though, You gotta rest.

You have been very busy. Your husband will be proud.

Pat said...

I'm sorry you have trouble sleeping with hubby away on business...but I'm glad you had enough "awake" hours to get your sewing room reorganized!

Well, I would say that the mess isn't all yours, you always have someone sewing with you so some must have been theirs, besides clutter means you are very creative :0)

Barb, sounds like you have been working hard. Now that you are all organized, it's time to get to sewing :-)

It is too bad you can't sleep with DH gone...have you tried a tiny sip of something alcoholic? Might relax you enough to doze off. YOur sewing room looks great!!!

♦I wish I had a room to make a mess in. My sewing is in a very small section of the family room. My biggest problem is- now where did I put that? I know -its here somewhere s o m e d a y!! LOL At nite when you go to bed put a radio at your bedside and turn it on very low. My Mom used to do that as she said she couldn't sleep if it was too quiet. Can't hurt to try it

Enjoy....LindaMay

Congratulations to Royce! You lucky girl. And Barb, I really thought you would have a much bigger stash!!! Good job on the clean up, but it will be back to normal in no time.

I never sleep well when my hubby is away, thank Heavens it is not do often. But boy did you use your time wisely!!

Rose Marie said...

Your studio is looking good ... for now! :o) I don't about you, but 5 mins. after my studio is all cleaned up and tidy, it is soon a mess again.

Tammy said...

Hi Barb,
Your sewing room looks great. I'm sorry to read you are bothered by poltergeists and can't sleep when alone in the house. What I do is put the dishwasher, clothes washer or dryer on at bedtime so I can explain the noise when hubby is out of town. I have a dog but she is definitely not in charge of security. If we hear a strange noise somewhere in the house, she looks to me to go investigate. My dog is a bit of a coward.

Millie said...

Barb you have been so busy while DH was away. Very nice sewing room...love the green table.

Zlaty said...

Happy sewing in your clean room!

Your sewing room looks fantastic! I have not slept well in over a week, someone's apt got broke into. So like you every little noise has me peeking out the peep hole and then laying there for hrs. I don't function well on 3 hrs per night. Hope your husband is home soon.
