One Townhouse Coming Up!

Thanks a bunch foa all the comments on yesterday's post!  It is always so great to hear from stitchers all over the word!  I have to apologize to Peggy Lee; I should have mentioned the retreat! The retreat is held in January and here is a link to the website of the framing and stitchery store Keepsakes (a wonderful place to visit by the way!).  The retreat information is a tad tricky to find, you have to click on "About Us" at the top right on the entry page and then "stitch-Away" further down on the new page.  Beth, how cool that you and I share "peeps".  I miss'em already... :-(

Well, back to the report at hand.  Let me begin by confessing that I am really, really tired!  One of my reoccurring New Years resolutions is to go to bed at a reasonable hour.  Both DH and I are night people, so it is very hard to stick to a committed bed time.  Well, I broke my 10 o'clock bed-time goal once again.  I do have something to show for it though; the Townhouse is finally complete!  (Please excuse the poor focus of the first pic - I am posting this and then it's off to bed, so no do-overs tonight...)

What will be on the list for tomorrow?  Well, I'd love to sit down with Miss Anne Maria Clarke, but not until I take care of this mess:

Yeah, I know!  It does not look neat and tidy at all.  Can you believe that I was on the verge of OCD once upon a time?  Now I don't even care if the whole world sees my mess!  How is that for progress!!!??? ;-)
DH quickly "rescued" me from my OCD once we moved in together.  It was either that tendency breaking down or one of us getting killed.  I miss being a single girl sometimes...  Back then there were no sock explosions all over the floor, no beer-bottle caps in the bathroom, no 15 assorted parrots living in my living-room.
Anyway - I have made up some excuses that sound almost passable, I hope.  Part of my excuse is that the stash has now officially outgrown the room.  The other excuse is that I have been too busy lately - finishing stuff, ironing, sewing, traveling, posting on my brand new blog (!) and on and on - that I have not had time to keep up.  Anyway - first thing on tomorrow's Things-to-do-after-work list.  (Second should proably be "fold laundry" and third should be "vacuum".  I really, really hate vacuuming.  Sigh.)

Well, off to bed with me.  I will do my best not to dream about household chores.  With my luck, I will probably dream about getting arrested while driwinving drunk on a sky-jack.... ;-)

Thanks so much for visiting, good night and see you tomorrow!


  1. Yay! You conquered that beast. I know how relieved you are to have it done too. I think it was worth the lost sleep!

  2. Haha! Helt rätt prioritering att välja roligt framför tråkigt. Det är ju stor skillnad på vad jag vill, vad jag bör, och vad jag måste. Mer vill mindre bör och måsten just bara när man måste :) puss

  3. Awesome finish!!! It looks great. :D I hear ya on the night owl thing. We keep saying we need to get to bed earlier, but don't usually make it to bed before 1:30.

  4. Thanks for the info...maybe next year!
    We are certainly opposites about the bedtime thing. I have a hard time staying up past 9pm. I'm usually up around 6am. When we go to work I have to get up at 3:30am and I collapse around 8pm.
    Love the townhouse!

  5. Very pretty, congrats on the finish!!!!

  6. Yay for "peeps". Your Townhouse is amazing. When I saw it the first time I didn't realize how teeny tiny it was - amazing work!!

    My craft room looked just like that two weeks before Christmas, but we were having company that was going to sleep in there for Christmas, so it is clean now. Another good reason to have family come home for the holidays!!

  7. the townhouse turned out Great! I love it. I gave up OCD with the third child but I see it in my daughter and she's trying to move it on to the grandson. I'm glad you gave it up - not worth it.
