Just wanted to prove to my chief naggers that I HAVE still been working. That pile in front of the plastic drawers is a bunch of scraps that I'm currently cutting up and some larger pieces that need folded and put away so it isn't as bad as it looks. The fan I bought a year ago and it was still in the box. Took me all of 3 minutes to put it together once I pulled it out of the pile. I guess next I'll tackle one of those laundry baskets of stuff.
And, Vicky, I don't know if this picture shows it or not but the wrapping paper is still there. Believe it or not it has a legitimate use in the sewing room. I'll be making clothes soon. And I usually have to alter patterns to fit me properly. I've found wrapping paper to make MUCH better patterns than tissue paper so when I get a pattern altered the way I like it I make a permanent pattern from the wrapping paper. SO THERE! :-P
