I think we've got it!

Today is scrap booking and I have a bit more sorting to do. I am pleased to see like grouped with like. I am also finding stuff I'd forgotten about which is why I need to group things. I am determined to put a moratorium on shopping for a while. sheesh!
The work table is getting cleared and hopefully every night it will be clear. Under the work table is becoming organized. I'm a piler so I am trying to eliminate places to pile and have a drawer system that is the easiest for me to actually use. The games I play but hopefully they work. ;) That would really be a WOW!
hmmmm? Now I'm wondering why I can't have peonies on my worktable! lol

The peonies survived the wind and the rain so I'm hopeful that the show is forthcoming.
Not so pleasing is what our big dog does to the raised bed at the house. He never did this before but age and the dreaded mosquitoes and ticks may be making his life a misery. This was once shaded and I'd hoped for cool water pools and hostas. The tree began to bang on the house so we removed it and establishing smaller trees and a bit further out has been a challenge.

I will DO it! I will!

The Rooster mutters about how long before I'll change things again. I'm hurt. These are upgrades, not changes! ;^)
I now have a helper on Tuesday afternoons and we purged and organized. I would look at some fabric, remembering when and where and what for and wax nostalgic. But the two questions that solved the dilemmas were- 1) Would I want a quilt from it? And 2) Would anyone else? Surprisingly my young gal okayed some. I did give her all the novelty fabric to sort and she commented that she could see some would indeed be hard to part with! lol I'm embarrassed by my excess but I am already feeling way lighter, freer and definitely happier.
After she left it was up to me to bag and load the trunk of the car. I'm sure the hood/nose is pointing slightly heavenward as if to say 'Really!'. I did scoop up one or two, no more than half a dozen, as a last moment reprieve. I also forgot to edit the green fabrics which are squeezed into their allotted shelf. oops! The main colours aren't stacked nicely but they are in their place.

For some reason clematis seem to like my yard. I need to redirect the one beside that lilac where it threatens to overpower that shrub and plant a few more throughout the yard.

I caught the sparkle!
Then I perfected the curve needed to attach the beads to the earring itself.
Since I was still seeing sparkles I finished up with a flourish and a matching bracelet. When 'it' happens it sure feels darn good!
