Anything Goes Mondays #77

I want to start of by thanking each and every one of you for leaving me such heartfelt, supportive and encouraging messages during last weeks' link up.  It means so much that so many of you care, that so many of you take the time to read and comment on my blog.  I was surprised that there are even some of you share my feelings and are going through the same and emotional struggles even if our situations are not completely the same.  I appreciate every single one of your bloggy friendships and thank all of you for reaching out to me.

Anything Goes Mondays #76

I have something to confess!  I am certain that for those of you that have been following my blog, you might have noticed that I don't blog as much as I did before, even my weekly link ups are not consistent.  I hardly share any pictures on Instagram either.  My last IG was about 3 weeks ago and even then they are spread far apart.  

The truth is, is that my life has gone from one of routine and simplicity to a more complicated one.  My husband is now working away from home.  It is not that bad since he comes home over the weekends.  But ever since this change I am just not myself!  

I am pretty sure most of you are thinking that if you had all this extra time to sew and quilt you'd spend it happily in your sewing room, but for me it has been very depressing!  I am just not myself, I wont go as far as to say that I am depressed, I am just not ME.  I don't deal with change well, or with being alone.  I thought that when Spring finally got here that it would have a different and maybe inspiring effect on me, but not even that has cheered me up....yet!

Maybe I just need some inspiration?  Who knows... but for now, I am getting on with daily chores, kids and... my thoughts.  I know its all in my mind and that I have to make and maybe even force myself out of this mood.  It is just taking a lot longer than I had hoped.

Anything Goes Mondays #75

As I was visiting most of last weeks' link ups I noticed that most of you are getting ready for autumn.  I am so glad and relieved that the seasons are changing, here in South Africa, Spring is finally here!!! I don't do winter well, sure it's not half as cold as most of you experience it in the North, but I am just not happy during the cold winter months.  Thank goodness our winters are short!

Lets get back to the link up and share some of last weeks' links.  Remember that if yours are featured here and you do not wish to have it shown, please contact me at marelizeries[at]gmail[dot]com.

Anything Goes Mondays #74

For those of you that have been following along my blog and Anything Goes Mondays might have noticed that today was supposed to be a host blog post.  On the 1st of each month we have a host for Anything Goes Mondays, and today it was supposed to be Jackie from NW Patchwork, but I was unable to get hold of her.  She's not been blogging since March of this year and she has not responded to my emails.  I sincerely hope all is well with her... but we will continue as before and today's linkup will resume as usual.

Anything Goes took a break for a few weeks, and during that time I made a few small changes in my sewing room.  I gave my sewing room and good and proper cleaning.  Dust is a big problem, especially this time of year.  So I cleaned out every little corner, and that was when I decided to move my fabrics from my fabric shelf to large drawers.

     

I am glad I decided to place the fabrics inside these large drawers, you will not believe how much sun damage my fabrics have because of it.... not to mention the dust.  It sure looked pretty on the shelf but it was NOT the best way to keep my fabrics clean and safe from damamge!

I don't have the most practical sewing room regarding storage and I have to make do with what I have, wall space is very limited so this tiny piece of wall space is all I have to personalize my room a bit.
