Yes, folks, the daffodils got the memo about spring, but apparently the weather systems did not. Here are my stoic little daffodils, bravely pushing up buds and shrugging off a new 4 inches of snow a few days ago. It has not all melted, and the real storm is due to hit tonight. Good grief - we could have another 10 inches by tomorrow afternoon. The shovel is still on the porch, but I really didn't think I'd be using it again. I want to boycott! It may be the perfect day to spend in the studio working on the March Take It Further Challenge.

With that in mind, and since it's Friday, I was in a mood to straighten up the studio rather than get to work on a new project. There's always much to attend to once a project is finished: leftover fabric to put away, patterns and templates and notes to corral, documentation file to fill out. I discovered I needed to print more of the documentation envelopes, took time to do the math that would tell me material costs and a set a selling price. Busywork in a way, but a somewhat enjoyable transition that clears the decks to make room physically and mentally for the next round of work. I didn't, however, think it would consume nearly 3 hours, but that's how behind I get on the little stuff, how much time it takes to do record keeping. Do it now or do it later, either way, it's not going away on its own. Doing it now gives me the freedom to work unencumbered tomorrow.
