I did a bit of rearranging in the dining area where I sew.  I had a shelf unit there that held all kinds of 'stuff'...things I thought I might need readily available while sewing.  I have found out that I don't...and, if I did, it surely would not hurt me to walk the 20 feet to the closet where said shelf unit now resides!  

And, hey!  During the sorting/cleaning up phase of all of that, I found fabric that had been cut for napkins.  For 6 of them!  So, I hemmed them.  ta-da...more napkins to add to my pile!  Apparently, I overlooked these...thought I was done making napkins.  The grand total is now 103 napkins made!  Most of them have been gifted, but I do still have a small stash of them (including these) on the ready for impromptu gifts.

I still need to clean off the table where Naomi Janome and Serger Sue dwell, but it already looks much nicer over there in that corner. 

It is Friday!  Those 3 words used to carry much more weight than they do on this day.  You know, back before I was retired...when Friday was the last day to work and the weekend was just moments away.  Now, everyday is the weekend for me!  Have I mentioned lately how much I love being retired?  ~grin~ 

Hope you get through your Friday and have an enjoyable weekend!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

That's a lot of napkins! Good going on getting your area all organized... it will be so much easier to think and stitch there now! I'm learning with my little "retirement preview" here.... that time speeds up even more... I can't believe it's been 6 months already... *sigh*
