The New Normal

Fitting it all in...our new normal. 
 This was my office for 20 years...Now, it is Mr. O'Quilts bedroom, a playroom and spite of it design wall!!!!
This has been a very tough day. 
 The minute quiet came...around 9 ish...I went looking for an old project to get into.
  I found these unfinished pinwheel blocks.  I think some might be missing, but I do not care.  I am carving out part of the room for myself. 
 I think it might be the new family room!
  See the wooden carved table that I got in Morocco for a carton of cigarettes and a kiss on the cheek.  I lugged it all the way home on the airplane.  Of course that was in the day when I was kissable on the cheek..ha ha...  And the vintage doll house I got at Andy's sale for a song.  
Lynsey loves it..and actually I find the boys trucks in there too.  
Trying to get a grip here.
Since my daughter cleaned out my computer, I cannot send thank you emails for comments...Just know that I love you all and will see what she can do to help me during a lull in the storm..

I'm sure it is so very hard to adjust to but the room looks cozy & full if quilts, family & love.

Each day as it comes. I agree with Smazoochie that the room looks cozy, so full of colour and activity. I love your Moroccan story!!

I came to this post three different times. I read your blog on my phone or my laptop in the middle of the night..insomnia..and they will not let me comment on other's posts. But here I am again. And this time, I am chairing the desktop and I have to say, this post and this photo touched me so deeply. To my very core. Heart to heart.
