I will have to share some pictures when everything arrives and I get set up a little. It will be so different to walk into our house and see furniture! I can not wait!

Today I think I need to make something I can sell. I love bags, but sadly they do not bring in the money that they once did.
I have a new focus, baby clothes! Yes, I am baking my 4th little one. Once the baby arrives, sometime around the 1st of Sept., we will have a total of 5 kids, wowzers! My husbands daughter will be 22 by then, and our other 3 will be 16,14 and 7. What a grand range. It's a good thing they say little people keep you young, we are going to need it!

And then we move onto my Rocketeer desk, which couldn't really be seen before I started. It now has my 3 drawer serger thread station and this huge tote of scraps that still need to be gone through. Why must I save all of my scraps? I just have this fear that if I unload them, I will need them for something useful. That would be sad! So here they sit, but I really need a prettier solution, this thing is just ugly and clashes with the decor!!
Most of my fabrics have been folded and stashed away on their shelves. I tried to do a little bit of organizing, but I think I missed a few cubes. Have to get to that later on!
I do have a horrible hideous pile of denims sitting on top that will not fit anywhere! I did at least refold them so they look a litte prettier than when they were just thrown up there!
I hope that this will help anyone else that is in the middle of a sewing slump. I really do think that the more organized your space is the more you will accomplish and the happier it will make you feel! I am off now to find something to cut out! I can only hope that by the time the stash game starts in February my space will still be clean!

We had a very merry Christmas this year. Time was well spent with family and friends, life couldn't have been any better. We spent Christmas Eve with my mom and luckily Santa found Noah's letter and redirected the children's presents and stocking stuffers to grandma's house! He could not have been more relieved!
I haven't sewn much, but was tempted this weekend and tried an idea that I had been playing with. I took a couple of thrifted tees and turned them into a newborn gown and beanie. Oh, it is so cute and cozy! I see more of these in the future for my ZooTZ store. The only thing not recycled is the blue rib knit.
Now I am off to sew some tees for Noah. He desperately needs long sleeved tees, we don't have much use for them in FL. But we are supposed to have a very cold spell this week. He has requested skater style tees, so we will see how I do!
I wish everyone the best of things to come for the New Year! May You and Yours be truly blessed this year!
