I've been organizing the scraps I picked up and the SAS stuff I bought.  Fortunately I was able to iron, fold and wrap fabric onto comic book boards and some I just folded neatly so they are ready to move into shelves when I have some!

Oh so sorry. Hope he can get it repaired. DH and I were talking about how nice his truck is.

Cathy just texted me…. She wants everyone to know that she has not disappeared!  But she has texted me that she is having computer/forum issues and not able to get on.

Finally I have time to get back here.  It took me a few slow days to "recover" from the retreat.  Then checked our calendar and realized DH had added a half dozen appointments onto our calendar.  We are in "selections" mode with our designers to begin to get things ordered so their arrival schedule can be anticipated.  We had 4 appointments in the last two weeks!!  But our designers have said we have done good and we have gotten a lot done.  Whew! 

This is the part of this building project I have not been looking forward to doing.  DH keeps reminding me to enjoy the process and have fun(!!) but I'm so nervous about not considering EVERYTHING and making the permanent and wrong decisions.  For the kitchen counters, island and backsplash decisions I did not defer to DH and, most importantly I stood up for what I liked.  Which is not what I naturally do being an amiable personality style.  DH has longed for me to enjoy this process and when he saw me declare the set of samples I chose (around the color blue) so definitively in the of the table he got a huge smile on his face and said, "The kitchen has been decided!"   

PS - I have to admit this is such an unusual and big deal to me I wanted to share it with someone(s).  Thanks for indulging me.
