How Do I Do This??

How, oh how, do I let this happen? My poor studio! It's in a horrible mess. I HAVE been busy.
I've had three major projects going on the last couple of weeks. The first was framing 18 samplers for my Mom. Every year she stitches and stitches and hands me her finished work to frame. It's a HUGE job. But, it's done, thank goodness. I delievered them to her house in Maryland this morning.

And, I've been getting ready for the York Folk Art Show which was this past weekend. It was a wonderful show! And I'm SO happy it's over!

My third big project has been designing Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow. It's not finished yet, but I have eight of the twelve blocks done. Carol is stitching like a crazy woman, even though I've asked and asked that she not stress over this. It would be wonderful if it were ready in time for Nashville in late February. But if it's not, that's fine too! (Carol, NO stressing!!)
Tomorrow is clean the studio day. You'll be SO impressed!!
Wednesday Art has more plastic surgery on his face. Thanksgiving probably won't be a big event for us this year. I'd love to make it to my sister Marty's for Thanksgiving with her family, but chances are Art won't feel very well. This is his second surgery on his face and there will probably be one or two more. Flying face first into a tree isn't easy on the face!
I will, though, enjoy having some free time to create and play in my studio. And design of course! And, Christmas is coming and you know what that means in my house. It's time to start making trips up to the attic and bring down the Christmas goodies! I LOVE doing that!
Please remind me of this when it's time to un-decorate!
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Your studio doesn't look bad to me! You are creative and it just looks like you have been workin in it! I am so anxious to see Autumn in Hawk Run Hollow. I think it will be a must have for me! I love all of the Hawk Run Hollow projects!

I hope your husband does really well and will just get better and better! You are both so lucky that he is ok after something like that, even though he is trying to recover from his injuries! What a terrible thing to have happen but he is alive and that is lots to be thankful for! I hope everything goes well for you both and I hope you have a nice Thanksgiving! We are just having a small dinner for the the two of us and Brandi and Chucky our two little dogs. Debby
