When I was a young mother, I had fabric and sewing supplies all over the house and would pull out my sewing machine and put it in the kitchen. I would have scraps and threads from one end of the house to the next. When I got alittle older and a home in Texas, I moved my sewing to the Laundry room, then to the foyer. Still fabric and material all over the house. Then when the boys started to leave home, I finally had the sewing room of my dreams (of course, I wanted shelving, cutting table...etc..but it worked). I was working so I could not enjoy the room as much as I wanted.

Now we have moved. I had a make shift sewing/bedroom. It worked, atleast everything was in one room at my finger tips.

Today, I am dismantling my sewing room. I have sons visiting and one staying. Once again I have material and supplies stored all over the house. It is amazing how much stuff I have collected and part of me is ashamed that I do have so much but any quilter/sewer will tell you that you can never have enough material. So....I have gone full circle. I don't mind, at least for the moment. It also reminded me of all the projects I have started and not completed. Once again, I tell myself, no more projects! No more projects! We will see how long that last.

That's why Mike hates my hobby. At least Uncle Vance doesn't seem to complain about it.
