I don't know why I tell on myself so much. Perhaps it's that Catholic upbringing? LOL
This is what my staircase looks like right now. About once a week or so I haul all the stuff back upstairs. My sewing area is downstairs just to the right of the staircase, and my stash room is upstairs. So I end up hauling stuff down to the cutting table, and then in the throes of creativity, I just pile it on the staircase to be dealt with later.
One thing I am going to do this weekend is get a cutting table set up again in the stash room. I think that will eliminate a lot of trips up and down stairs to the cutting table in my sewing room. Usually I just needed a strip or a hunk of something, but the whole piece has to come downstairs. That basket of Civil War stuff has definitely got to go back up. I almost tripped over it a few minutes ago.
I'm not lazy. I'm really not. But you could never tell it from this picture.
I sure hope I get some sewing done this weekend as I've run plumb out of quilty pictures to post. Yes, Judy, I left the PP templates at the office today, but I'm getting ready to draw it out again and go over to the Office Depot around the corner to make copies. While I'm there I should pick up ink cartridges. That would solve the copying problem! LOL
Four days and only one peek at an online BOM. No, I didn't order it. If it's still there next month, then it was meant to be. This challenge is SO hard! I've come to realize what an impulse shopper I am. A couple of weeks ago I would have poked that order button without even thinking! And it would have ended up in the BOM purgatory closet with the others.
Today was an interesting day. The 'former' employee made mistakes on the payroll that I handed out, and checks had to be recut. Found a major posting error when I was closing out the week and I had to deal with that before I could leave. But the good news is that I got everything balanced, another accounting project finished and off to the outside CPAs, and the backlog balanced. Bad news is that I don't think I'm going to get to Louisiana this fall as I planned. I don't see how I can when I'll be having a new accountant coming in to train. I did talk to the CEO about a vacation week, though, and we agreed to see how quickly the new hiring goes. I'm really homesick ...
