Last night was just one of those nights...mornings, actually, when I just couldn't get the old mind to shut up!! I had a new toy and just had to play with it right then. I had been
I quit this foolishness around 2:30 a.m. before it really got out of hand. Give me some ideas what to do with these now. Any ideas will be so welcome.

They have worked really hard for me here also. I don't like to waste time searching for a particular color of thread and I sorted them by color groups. Yes, yes, I know some of you are saying that is a bit OCD, but trust me....it has saved me tons of time and frustration!
I also have several older spools of thread that just made the above drawer get all out of wack. This older jar is perfect for older spools. Before you think I've gone OCD AGAIN, there was a really good reason the spools are stacked. I had thrown them in there and had about 8 spools left out in the cold. Sooooo.....I dump them all out and start over....stacking them. I was wanting them to fit in one jar. As you can see, there are still a couple of lonely gals waiting to get inside. There may be another jar that needs to be filled when I gather some more of these little spools I spied in yet another drawer.
You get a glimpse of just a small bit of my laces. I had a lot of these old wooden spools lying around for years. One evening was spent wrapping about a dozen of these spools with my pieces of lacey goodness. Having all these items around are good to inspire creativity and I get to use some of my favorite things.

I am finishing some cute bedrolls for kiddo's just like the real cowboys use. If we have some good daylight, I'll grab some photos of all the work from these past days.

A sidenote on all the kittens and the momma cat - They all have homes in other parts of the area. We helped them pack their little suitcases and went over the travel plans and said our good-byes. (wiping a tear) Maybe we'll get a postcard later.
I hear the chaos calling and I must abide and get that machine to humming again.

I am hoping for a beautiful day tomorrow and put away my Christmas. Don't ya just want to scrub the house from top to bottom after the holidays? My mind says YES, my body says WHATEVER!! We'll see who wins out in the next week. This is always my 'spring' cleaning time of year and it really energizes me.
Busy, busy, busy....I think I'm going to find a shoe for a pillow.
