Month of Hibernation

I have been calling February the Month of Hibernation for me and Charlie as we work into his retirement [and get ready to go to Florida for the month of March]. We both have had long-lasting colds right away, and that really did send us to bed for naps everyday and used up a lot of Kleenex.

Now that I am back from the quilting retreat, I have hopes of neatening up my sewing room, and even moving some of the furniture around. Today I emptied the two-drawer file cabinet I've had for years. It really didn't have much to do with sewing, except for a mass of Velcro tapes that were all stuck to each other like a ball of mating snakes. The file cabinet made its way down to the rec room where Charlie is setting up something like an "office" but with no desk. That effort also produced two paper grocery bags of trash and one grocery bag of books to donate to the library.

In total that work gave me about 2 square feet of additional floor space in the sewing room. Hmm. I need to keep working on this project. That's not enough space to move any furniture around!

I'm trying to re-organize my sewing room, too. Somehow it's a lot harder than I thought it would be!
1 month in the sun? Sounds fantastic!
