Cleaning your Room pays off!!

I keep telling my kids that cleaning their rooms pays off. SOOO, I took my own advice and cleaned my sewing room. I dug around in the bottomless bins and found all these autumn beauties (well, they are in real life, camera sucks)just screaming "USE US!!!" Oh ya!! Can you say PROJECT!! I see a bag needing to be made. OH YES siree bob!! And to think I was having a big "whoa is me" day.

I was feeling very "alone in a crowd" today. Every now and again, I get very lonely. My two closest friends are far away from me (thank goodness for email!!) and there is no one local that I seem to have anything in common with. I was feeling sad to have no one to go out to lunch or have some hot cocoa and read magazines at Borders with. I know I am very blessed in my life, but sometimes I wish I had a good girlfriend to go out with. There is no one around me that likes to play on the internet, knit, sew, paint or anything I like to do. Heck, half the time when I talk about blogging or any of the great things I've found or do, I get funny looks. Hmm, maybe it's just me. I've always gotten funny looks so I should be used to it. I've always kinda been different then most people around me, but it gets lonely. I'm not THAT unique!! Scheesh!!

This happy discovery in my stash doesn't make the sadness go away, but it gave me that kick of inspiration I've been hoping for. Maybe I can create my own happiness. Worth a shot!! At least I'll get something nifty out of the deal!
