I usually don't work well in this kind of mess.
But I'm getting used to it.
Actually, since taking this picture the area is a little more organized.
All fabric is either cut and labeled or stacked under the sewing machine neatly, color coordinated.
We haven't eaten at our table in about a month.
Good thing we have a large kitchen island.
Although it is covered in cake stands drying right now so I'm not sure where my kids will eat breakfast this morning. Maybe in the car. On the way to school.

While I was sewing last night I let my mind dream a little.
I am actually going to be selling something I created in two days.
Like in a store like setting. That makes me a little nervous, but is exhilirating.
Then I dreamt a little more and thought....."what if in a few years I could open an actual store. A successful store. Oh that is too scary....." so I stopped thinking about it.
But Dave has said, "What if Funky Vintage Kitchen became a home party type business all over the United States?" I said, "Oh hunny, you are sweet, but I don't think that would ever happen."

He said, "Don't you like that I dream big for you?"
But I have four loads of clean laundry sitting on my bedroom floor. Bills to pay. Return phone calls to make. Kids to feed. Invoices to send out. Floors to sweep. Dinners to make. Catheters to wash. Research to do on bigger diapers. Too many things to be dreaming big.
But I am enjoying the ride!
