Happiness Is.....

more Storage!While my son was home for Christmas I had him empty the bookcase in his room. He lives on the opposite coast from me and he only comes home at Christmas. I usually go out there twice a year and of course we phone and email. I wish he didn't live so far away. My studio is overflowing with fabric, since I keep dyeing more and I didn't see why I needed to keep old college, law school and other books there when I could put that space to good use.

I plan to empty out the bookcases in my studio, cull the quilting books and probably give at least half of them away. That will free up space for fabric storage. He also emptied out his closet and brought a large haul to Good Will. There will go rolled quilts, rolls of PFD fabric and rolls of quilt batting.

Here's that good guy, Kurt, with his sweetie, Katie. I forgot to take pictures all weekend, but I grabbed the camera just as they were getting ready to leave on Saturday. It was so good to have them here even if it was such a short time. They both have the bluest of eyes, which came out red-eye in the picture. I tried to fix it, but the fix was not that successful.

Oh to have an empty bookcase. Happy and healthy New Year, Norma.

I'm sure you'll enjoy the bookcase space, Norma; I think I need to follow suit on the book donation front. And I'm so glad you got to spend time with your sister, son, and his girlfriend. Sounds like a perfect holiday!

Your son looks just like his mama!
