Just a Note

I miss all of you. I miss visiting you and I miss your visits to my blog. Every time I post, I eagerly await your comments so I can start "talking" to all my friends in email.
I simply can't believe how fast time goes by.
Right now, I feel like I'm all alone out here in a big field, shouting, but no one can hear me.
I'm lonely - I need the voices of my friends.

Every day I think I'm going to be able to sit down and do a blog post and fill you guys in on my life..................and every night I get back to my hotel room and crash straight into bed.

You see, I started a new job. I didn't want to say anything until the dotted line was signed.
I've been out of town doing my training. I'm learning to be back on my feet again - literally - all day long.
I can tell you without a doubt that I miss my afternoon naps in the worst way possible.
I'm squeezing a 6 week training course into 3 weeks so that I can get moved into my final place as soon as possible.

What am I doing? Well, I think it just may be a dream job for many of us with fabric type obsessions. I'm managing a fabric store! Woohoo!
I'll give you more details on that once I get settled into my final destination.
Yes, I did it. I gave up self employment and went to work for a company.
A stable company, getting a steady paycheck, and real benefits.
(although I don't think they've caught on to how beneficial an afternoon siesta can be yet!)
Hey, when a company like that calls you wanting to know if you'd be interested in coming to work for them, you jump on it. Know what I mean? Sure you do.

Anyway, I will not be back home until the 20th, so I won't be able to give you a full blog before then on any of my projects, but, I'll clue you in to what lies ahead.

First up will be my new Bird in a Frame wall art.

After that....guess what? I got my master bedroom finished so I'll be doing a full reveal.

Then I'll move on to the dining room changes.
Wait till you hear why my normal table is missing. I meant to tell you all about it back at Thanksgiving but I forgot. It's funny.

Finally, I'll tell you all about my visit with this wonderful family. And I mean wonderful!

So, that's where I've been and what I'm up to, and what I've got coming up in the near future.

What have you been up to?


  1. Congratulations! I wish you the best of luck with the crash training course!

    My Guy thinks I should start a fabric store instead of getting ready to set up a sewing business. (He almost had a cow after multiple large deliveries!) I'm thinking it certainly sounds Obsessively Delightful but it's not in the cards for me at this point.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how this all works out for you. And looking forward to post with new, dreamy fabrics! I can hardly wait to see your bedroom reveal!

  2. Hi Polly! It's so good to get an update from you. That's great that you have found your dream job. I totally understand about adjusting to full time work again. Since returning to teaching in the fall, I'm very happy but tired. You'll get used to it and find a new rhythm. :)

  3. Hey, Polly! Congratulation! I imagine it is a HUGE adjustment going from self-employed at home to the workplace! But you're going to do great! I haven't even been back to take the pictures we talked about but it's still on my to-do list! Talk soon!

  4. Awww Polly, I'm so happy for you! Things will work out. We will wait for you!

    And ahem.. YOU MET KOLEIN and her family?!? AAAAK! I'd be starstruck! :) Soooo cool!!!!


  5. Polly I do miss and in BG! We LOVED visiting with you, too! I was just packing for our trip back up north. As I was looking at the beautiful gifts you made for me I kept saying, "Polly" - over and over.

    I'm holding you in my heart and thinking about you everyday!

    And gals, Polly's home is genuinely something out of the best home decor magazine! She is an incredibly talented designer and seamstress! And her heart is as big as the globe!!!! *hearts*


    Love and big hugs,

  6. Congratulations Polly. I have missed your posts and I was hoping all is okay but apparently it is much better than okay. I always loved starting a new job and the new challenges that went with it. The fabric company is truly lucky to get someone as talented as you.

  7. Wow Polly, this is exciting news! I would love to work in a fabric store. I can't wait to hear more about your new job. And how great that you got to meet Kolein!

  8. Well congrats on your new job!! Sounds exciting and something which is right up your alley!! Good luck dear one...I am sure you will be a great success!!
    Love the bird frame art!! So cool!!

  9. I was just thinking about you, too. Well, congrats on the job, Polly! They couldn't have asked a more perfect person! It sounds like you had a lot going on with projects, too. I'm looking forward to seeing what you've done. If they have an employee suggession box, maybe you could mention the nap thing. : )

  10. Congratulations on the new job! I can relate to being tired because I started consulting again for my former employers. The money they dangled in front of my face coaxed me out of retirement, LOL. All your projects sound great! I love that bird frame and the fabrics on your bed look delicious! Take care and rest when you can. We'll wait for you to return...

  11. I'm so happy for you!! Can't wait to see your updates....that being said. take some time to tke care of yourself...we'll be here

  12. You have been sooo missed. I check everyday. Can't wait to hear more about your job and of course love seeing your home makeovers. Sounds like a dream job, even if you have to give up naps. Come back soon and fill us in.

  13. Hi Polly, Best of luck with your new job! I am excited to see what projects you have coming up. Take care.

  14. Congrats on the new job- I hope you adjust quickly and without too much pain. I just started volunteering at a resale shop for a few hours, and my feet are killing me! :)

  15. Hi Polly~~~

    It's so great to hear from you again...I was getting worried that you had become sick again. Congratulations on your new job! I am sure it will take a lot of adjustments but I think you will be perfect for this position! I look forward to hearing all about your new job and your latest projects! Best wishes!


  16. Another job!??? How perfectly awesome for you.

    and ..what? you met Kolein? That is so cool!

    Don't we just all love her to bits? Well, I'll be watching you-- and can't wait to see that next post. Hang in there with the new job.


  17. I wish you the very best in your latest venture. I hope it brings you happiness and prosperity as well as peace of mind..
    I too am in a whirlwind so I know what you mean about feeling alone and hollaring at the sky, wanting to hear a voice answer you back.. and lookie-- here we are~!!
    hugs and happiness to you, Polly
