Sorry to be gone so long!  I had hoped to do a short post or two from Camp Stitchalot last week/weekend, but the internet was spotty and too slow.  You can check out my Facebook page or Instagram to see what we all worked on.  (Check out #campstitchalot on Instagram)

New pattern storage system in progress

I got back from Camp on Sunday afternoon and spent Monday catching up on household duties – the never ending laundry and errands 🙂  Yesterday I spent a good chunk of the day rearranging parts of the house.  You may recall that last spring/summer I had taken over my older daughter’s bedroom as my pattern storage/shipping department and then had to clear my stuff out when she came home for a few weeks in the fall.  A few things stayed in her room, with her permission, but most of it went into the living room.  We don’t use our living room as much as we might, so it hasn’t been a problem, but, as you may know, the holidays are coming!

We always host my husband’s family for Christmas and I don’t want my living room full of patterns when we do!  Also, our tree won’t fit the way things are now.  So, I’ve cleaned out a bench in our family room, found a new spot for it and set up some new shelving for the patterns.  I’m also getting a new bed for my daughter’s room and that required some rearranging there too!  It will all be wonderful when she gets home and we can fit our tree in the living room!

I’ve got some more work to do on both these projects but they are coming along nicely.  I wish I could say the same for my Christmas shopping!

    Christmas is coming way too fast. I don't have your problem of taking over the living room but I am rushing around trying to get everything sorted as I'm hosting my family for Christmas here.

    I so relate to taking over kid's rooms. I've got plans for both bedrooms when the time comes but for now can't bring myself to completely take over my son's room . . . just a little at a time. btw . . . we met at Market and I've enjoyed reading your blog since then. Merry Christmas.
