..so now I can actually move around in here again! This is looking in from the door. It is not a total reorganized space but a workable for now space!;-) Meaning I can pull out cutting table and sit at machine table!
I still have not redone the fabrics yet. I had mad money to spend over the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales while free shipping was being offered as well.
So it is still in piles here and there. At least not burying the cutting table or sewing machines anymore! Will it stay this way long?? No idea! If I was a good gal and pick up after myself, would have a good shot at staying neat. I will try....;-)
Speaking of machines. Here is my new light weight take along machine. Singer Athena 2009. Yes may look heavy but isn't. Was a Cyber Monday deal. Not too impressed with the new Singer machines though. I had given my small 1994 quilting Singer to my DIL. She is wanting to sew now. Was a great machine, wonderful top stitch. I wanted a machine with a few of the stitches my Bernina has for taking to work shops. Tension issues on this one already but working through them. Customer service from Singer is also not what used to be. Took them 3 weeks to answer my email and then did not address my issues.
Glad it was a super cheap deal or this baby would be back in box and gone! Just my humble opinion.
See I can cut at the table again! No more moving stuff into dining room. Do not want to make that a habit.
I can also pull this table out and open up all the way in living room for big lay out jobs.
This pile will go away in a bit too. Just have to sort medical paper work and more shredding. That old gold sewing box was Aunt Dot's. Plan to use it as my take along to work shops! Strap to top of my rolling cart!
One more soon to be stored away pile. Wool. All washed cut and ready to use.
Here is the 'bleeding' fabs. Yes they were very bad. But hoping all will be well now. Will do a wash after I have the quilt done. Simple patch pattern for a a lap quilt. Nothing fancy!
That high $ college fabric raveled like a 'B' I must say! Seems sort of like I lost an inch off my yardage! No did not sew edges or pink them. Maybe next time I will think about it!
Whew.. been busy doing the clean out straighten up in other places. Did hall linen closet too!
Looks great for now! Have a sack of things for local animal shelter too.
Planned on doing some in DH's closet today but what a mess!!!
Maybe just a wee bit of folding on top shelf then back to my sewing room!!!!!
Yet another dreary day here. Wet and colder. We need the rain but gee whiz does it all have to come at one time!
Is a good day to be inside!!
Chicken and dumplings for supper! Hot and delish.
No.. I do not have a recipe. I just make 'em like my Granny and Mama did.
Muck up my dough, roll out, cut n drop in my chicken and veggie broth.
Not complicated or healthy either for that matter but good for the tummy's soul!
