Time flies.......

It is just amazing when I take the time to look at my blog all the stuff that has happen since May 31st. It is too much to tell so I am just going to make it short as possible.

My Sister’s cancer is gone as of now. All testing show that the chemo did its job and since she has the surgery done there is no need for radiation! She is not in the process of getting the tissue expander fill a little every two weeks to get to the size she wants. Then sometime in November she will have the implants put into place.

My cousin Brenda King died. This was stunning to us all she was planning a party for everyone who has helped her to deal with her illness. She went to fashion desgin school and because of her I had experienced what it was to be a model and then what it was to run a fashion runway! I love her very much.

Pap pap died, He fell and hit his head which caused bleeding in his brain and that was and still is heartbreaking and so is living day to day without him. Todd himself day that the funeral was hard but living without him to talk to is even harder.

Pap house was left to his son so we will be moving in. We gave our notice to our landlord and so September we will be out of there and into our new home.

I am working hard to make the house feel like our home and it is taking some time because of over 40 years of stuff in the house. So with cleaning and taking the time to figure out what need to be thrown away in both house it is difficult because I can do something with everything. I do not want to be on an episode of hoarders so I will be getting rid of a lot of stuff! (sigh!)

I still have not found my camera so I will have to buy a new one but I will keep posting as much as I can.

First room to truly complete, Sewing room. This house is a 3 bedroom cottage style house with and addition in the back that is now the game room. We cleared the 3rd bedroom out ( smallest of all the bedrooms) and Sunday I painted it , the color is a Berkley Tan. I will paint the framing of the window and door and milk chocolate brown and pale blue is the other color that will be in the room. I think this will be the colors for the whole house so it will seems coordinated to some degree.

I am sore and tomorrow I will be even stiffer but tonight I go to the old place and clear out the kitchen cabinets and the bathroom and pack up most if not all the stuff in the sewing room. It would take about 90 minutes and then Tuesday I will be cleaning the kitchen cabinet of the new place and restocking it with the pot and pans that I will be keeping. Wednesday moving the sewing room in the new place. That leaves the bedroom, basement, attic for the long weekend.

I know it will not be done that quickly but who knows maybe.

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
Sew Perfect 4 Every Body Goals vs Dreams A conversation over Tea Hello , If you read this blog at all you know it has been almost a year since I have posted anything.
Like so many things with me a lot of unfinished objects...projects...business. I keep putting off the things in my life that I love .  I thought that i was trying hard to stop the trait but I
come to realize that is not so. I am my biggest obstacle. What is really bad is when I get the courage to
share something that i really want to do if that person makes the slightest  discouraging comment,
I am like what am i thinking. WHY DO I DO THAT! I am not really sure why that is.   Recently my husband had a problem with is knee it was swollen and painful.
 We go to the urgent care and then to the Emergency room next thing I know he is admitted to the hospital
and needs surgery to clean out an septic infection.  He would need to be 6 weeks off work.
He was top on my mind of course but the bills were like a animal crouching to …
S Sew Together!!Good day!  How was your weekend?  I had a wonderful weekend the sewing event was a beautiful success! 


The Sewing Machine were in place and supplies are available just waiting for the people to arrive. 

I am very happy to have ventured out of my comfort zone it was very empowering to accomplish this!  

Our Mentors were working on sewing project while helping others ! 


Some who are learning were happy and frustrated.  Lining the top of the dress can be a challenge but she conquered it! 

I cannot wait to see the finish projects of all those who took advantage of the event to start a project.  

First time at a sewing machine and so eager to see the finish result!  


It was so happy that all enjoyed themselves.  I look forward to seeing the finish items.  I have appointments with some for one on one training and mentoring and the excitement is infectious.  I was very happy with the small event  I look forward to doing this again.  
Now i have to focus on a dress for a clie…
