Winter Blues…thread organization!

Where have I been?   I guess you could say I have been a victim of the “Winter Blues”.

I did go to my quilt retreat last weekend and I had a great time, but on Monday I slipped back in to a “funk.”  Then last night we went on a “date night” with my family and I realized what I had been missing all along was….”sister time.”  I have three sisters and one brother and we are very close.  Like everyone we get busy with our daily life and sometimes forget to check in with each other.  So today I called my sister and decided we needed a road trip.  Last weekend I was working on some machine applique and realized I needed more bobbins.  My local JoAnn’s doesn’t carry Viking bobbins, so we needed to travel to “the Big City”.  The bonus is that they also have  Panera Bread which is my FAV!

Last weekend my friend had this great container for all her sulky thread and I remembered how disorganized my thread was at home.

After I purchased my bobbins from a very unfriendly Viking dealer,  we were off in search of the organizer.  What luck… 50% off,  for $15.00 my thread is now so organized.

Sometimes it’s the small things that make you happy.  Oh that is not the truth, the truth is it is my “sissy” time that makes me really happy.  Of course, it didn’t hurt that she treated me to dinner at Panera!!!

Now for true confessions…I have traded one addiction for another. That may be another reason I have not been posting!  Remember my addiction to Pinterest, well my sister just had to tell me about this game she plays on the computer…Candy Crush.  Never, never play it because it is so addictive.

I don’t know if you can tell, but I am now on level 45.  That is too many hours of playing.  The worst part is I am also playing on my iphone.  I am on level 54 on my phone.  The good part about that is that yesterday I decided I would walk on the treadmill while I played on my phone and I have already walked an hour and a  half.  I am still determined to lose this weight…lol.
