In the closet-in a frenzy

This is what happens when you don't know what you want and you can't find what you are looking for...FABRIC FRENZY. I am hanging my head in shame. Let me also say that I'm a gemini-full on snakes in the head gemini....When an idea strikes-back away slowly-run- and don't look back. I think I'm in a sort of manic phase-that's good in some ways and REALLY bad in other ways like this closet situation right here. The smart thing to do would be to take it all out and re-organize it by color the way it should be. MMMMMnnnnooooo. When the frenzy strikes-the crazy get going.
I'm not one of those folks who need to go out and join the maddness at black Friday weekend sales-there is almost nothing I can think of that I need badly enough to enter the twilight zone of consumerism this weekend. I'm fortunate enough not to have to go to a regular daily job so I'll wait until maybe tues. or wed. and head to JoAnn's. I need wonder under and backing for the boy's quilt and for my nieces too. I need thread-May order that one on line since I found I like that King Tut thread I got at the fabric store in Maine. It's varigated and really silky. I love it. I only use it for top stitching though since it costs King Tut prices.
I leave you with a picture of the best thing I ever did in my life(James) and hope you have a great weekend. If anyones looking for me-I'll be in the closet. If you don't hear from me-send in the troops I may be on the floor under all this stuff.

One year I had Christmas shopping done by July 4th but that was when I was more anal than I am now. . . .well, that's my story, anyway! I never go out during the week after Thanksgiving.

I understand the closet. I had a shelf break in two this summer and it is still in that sorry state of affairs. We learn to adjust!

I have found you at last--my long-lost sister (I am adopted so who knows?). When I am looking for a fabric, my shelves end up looking exactly like that and my eyes are glazed over and my hair standing on end until I find it! And good-looking young man!
