We decided to fly out to Las Vegas to check out housing so we are going to fly out on May 3rd and come back May 6th.  Right now I'm trying to figure out the most efficient way to pack what we don't need to have out right now and where to put stuff I want to try to sell in a yard sale.  Jannaka has been going through my quilts and taking what she wants.  Plus I'm going to donate 3 or 4 to the library where she works as they are getting ready to move in to a new location.  I have a wallhanging I made several years ago using fan blocks that I will put a new label on as I want to call it "Fans of the Library"

I could probably push it, Janet: but, I don't really see the point. Fully vaccinated and past the 2 week after period. There are some things that I need to be in the office to do efficiently. The job is definitely do-able from home, though. I've proven that.

It is too bad that your employer is not willing to let you work from home Sheila.  Our future SIL works in the IT Dept for Shelter Insurance.  They have a pretty large complex in Columbia, but recently they decided to continue having the majority of their employees work from home.  Dustin has mixed feelings about it as it can be hard to ignore distractions.

Understood, Debbi. The neighbor has a wood burning furnace/hot water heater; and - of course - they are west of us so their smoke blows my way. It's not often I can even have a window open without having the smell of smoke fill the house (and my lungs) so, I'm all for the few days per year I can do it.

Just pre-ordered Lori Holt's new fabric line "Stitch" thru FQS. I love the way all of her fabric lines co-ordinate with each other. Just FQ bundles for me but, so versatile. 

I've got to get organized here at home. I think the reason I haven't sewn in so long is that I don't have quick access to the tools I use every day. When I got the Grace Q-Zone set up, we had to re-arrange the room and I lost my 6' banquet table that I had everything set up on. So, now I have a couple of small totes full of stuff that I have no place to put where it will be convenient. That's sad. I'm back to using the Horn cabinet - which I Love - but, I don't have room to spread out like I did with my table. Hmmm...gotta think on this - (don't mind the smoke)!

Sheila - ME???? ... An enabler???? Ha! Not me! LOL I would NEVER do anything like that. Hahahaha! That's what sewing friends are for ... right??? LOL Sorry you're having to go back to the office tomorrow. Just in time for nicer weather. Ugh! Our temps were in the 90's last week and weekend ... they've dropped to the upper 80's this week; but, the wind has been blowing. Allergies have been horrible. No open windows, here.

Yes, Janet - ONLY 200 - my sewing room isn't very big...LOL!

Debbi - I think you're an enabler (Love It!).

Back to the office tomorrow - UGH! Not looking forward to it at all. Now that the weather has gotten nicer, it's wonderful to have my window AND have it open!

LOL Sheila! I can understand/sympathize with that! LOL

Comment by Janet/MO on April 6, 2021 at 5:56pm

Only 200 years old Sheila?!  LOL

Comment by Sheila Craft on April 6, 2021 at 7:37am

I can't purge! I have to live to be 200 years old! LOL.

Comment by Debbi Lamb/AZ on April 6, 2021 at 6:32am

Yes, Janet, moving is a GOOD thing in regards to purging. When I think about a possible move, I realize just how much "purging" needs to happen and wonder if we should even attempt something like moving. Ha! I don't envy you having to do all this. I've gone through my "stash" of patterns and fabrics several times ... done a lot of purging. Yep - I completely understand the "depression" regarding the money spent. It can be overwhelming. I try NOT to think about that. LOL
