From the Sublime to the Ridiculous

My Darling Photgraphy Staff(Hi Guys) got this shot of the harbor for me over the weekend. I liked the pictures so much that I decided to use one for the header. Maybe I should also change the name of this blog to Thea Quilts(but not much). I can't believe how hard a time I'm having getting back into the swing of things. I just had so many things I let slide around the hovel that I couldn't go on without attacking the mess. Seriously, it looked like a fabric explosion in the closet, which is generally in pretty bad shape anyway given my lack of concern with hanging things up. Well after numerous days of chucking stuff and the eternal search for "the mythical bottom", I'm still looking at a couple more days of discovery and rejection. I can't believe all the crap I have. Shame...really shame on me. Anyway, I thought I'd just check in and let you know that I have not gone missing-at least not in the true sense of the word. In reality, I simply cannot work on anything until I take at least a stab at being organized. I managed to find a few things that I had forgotten about that are, of course, unfinished. I would show you pictures but I went to use the camera yesterday and it told me the card was full. I will ask my favorite engineer to help me with that later. What I can show you is how neat and tidy I boxed up some fat quarters that were, literally, looking like confetti on the closet floor. I managed to twist my foot and ankle a bit getting off the pull-down attic stairs yesterday so today will be an attic-free day. I remain Grace personified.
It still looks pretty bad but I can't tell you how much better this mess looks than it did. Scary huh???
Well, time for some lunch and back to work.
I did want to thank my friend Grazia in Rome for the "Make my Day" award. Rather than naming any individual people this time I will just say if you're reading this, you make my day. I have so many wonderful and talented people with blogs I read regularly that I just can't single out anymore people. Thanks so much for stopping by to read my blather and sticking around even though I have clearly fallen into a creative abyss. Hope to climb out soon.

Geez, girl! You should open a fabric shop!! Just kidding! I have a ton of fabric, too and I don't quilt. I finally gave up on organizing the studio. When it's organized I don't want to create because I'll mess it up! So with that in mind it's just going to stay messy.
