I am making progress! Went for coffee and shopping with my friend, Chris. I am so blessed to have amazing friends. I was raised as an only child and we have a very small family. I have a cousin in Maine who is the daughter of my mom's twin and a half sister and brother whom I love (met them when I was 40 at dad's funeral) but we are not in contact very often-so my friends are closer than family-the sisters I never had. We were going to see the Hobbit but the theater wasn't showing it when they advertised so I came home, took a nap, watched 3 episodes of a marathon NCIS and then went back to work on "the room". The work had an aesthetic side benefit of the tactile pleasure of touching the fabric and sorting it into color pathways or thematic packs. The Kaffe Fassett fabric wins the touch test-it is almost like velvet. The Joann's fabric solidly wins last place-probably will never buy fabric there again, but their sales for supplies can't be beat.
I have a goal of making my granddaughter's bedroom ensemble in the next 3 weeks-we'll see:) At least my room will be ready by tomorrow to take on the task.
