I'm back!!!

I just came back downstairs from my first adventure up the stairs and into my sewing studio after a looooong 2+ month absence.  I really did have tears in my eyes when I first set foot in the room.



At first I was a little overwhelmed but once I got started, I spent a WONDERFUL 2.5 hours dusting and vacuuming.  



Then came the chore of trying to find a home for the stuff I've been buying during my convalescence.   



There's still a lot to do but tomorrow is another day.  With two more snow storms in the forecast over the next 5 days, I'll have plenty of time to accomplish my goals.



The rest of the upstairs needs a good cleaning as well but that'll have to wait for another time.  The dust bunnies did not disappoint me!

I can't tell you how wonderful it feels to be back!


Happy stitching!
