Hello Old Friend!

Nineteen 12 hour days with only one day off in the middle of that mess and I have conquered 95% of the project.   Next week will be ticking and tying with the attorneys to make sure all the exhibits are referenced correctly and trust me, this will all be done during normal working hours.    It was a welcomed treat to wake up and not have to go to work and to find a long lost comforting friend sitting in wait.   Ahhhh.....a couple or three cups of coffee, stitching and a lazy morning for me. 
 Really love the colors and the cute flowers.

I picked up this goodie at a craft event in June.   Just love the whimsy of it.   Not sure what I am going to do with it.  It is a neat way to use old buttons.   The booth has tons, in all kinds of color combinations.....wish I had bought more.

Not the best display but my vaaaahhhses have yet to be unpacked.  Furniture back in place but the contents of cabinets, bookcases, etc., still in tubs.   My mission today will be to finish painting the bookcase and unpacking a couple of tubs - sorting and minimizing as a go.   I am liking the cleaner, less cluttered look.....probably won't last but a girl can dream.

Look at the support I am getting!    Appears Buddy is too tired to help me with a few house projects.   Males!    I guess I will tackle the laundry and errands and putzing alone!  Have your rest Buddy, you apparently need it since you like to play and pounce all night long!  Such a tom-cat.     Thanks for stopping by......have a great week all!

Sounds like you have been very busy! Enjoy your much needed relaxation. That's a great design you are stitching.

Love the button arrangement you picked up. That is a really neat idea for using old buttons.
