This has been a long lunch break! I have (had) a general plan. Now to fill in the gaps. I don't order a lot on line and the last catalogue I could find is from April. So there were serious gaps in my preplanning. I'm not sure I totally stayed with the plan but I'm hoping I got the key fabrics so it'll be kind of a surprise package when it comes. ;^) I'll share all the ooh's and ah's when it arrives.
I inherited a whole LOT of 30's medley of the month packages. Lots of blue which isn't where I'm headed. Not too much aqua which is what I was hunting for. I've had to put away some groupings and pattern ideas for future gift ideas because they just aren't what I've got in mind. But I've managed to keep from getting too overwhelmed and bogged down by colour grouping the best of the bunches, eliminating the No's and just dealing with the maybe's. I'm learning that too much confuses me so putting away the 'also rans' and focusing on my room theme is important. Makes less of a mess, too!
I'm also realizing that I enjoy the challenge of creatively coping within my limitations.
It has been a very fun couple of days.
