I've been sneaking moments here and there all weekend long to sew and this morning I was able to piece the border onto the next floral Disappearing 9 Patch. Since I was sewing, I also made the binding for this one. Next up, after the clean-up, load and quilt.
After a quick run to the post office and lunch, it was time to tackle the sewing room. Everything that goes in just seems to pile higher and deeper (maybe I could get a pHD in messiness :)).
I sorted through some papers and filed them even some guild meeting minutes from March!
Dug out a place for the Janome Gem. I was working on the coiled basket for DD for Easter (like in March) when the zig zag started to zag when it should zig...and abandoned it. Took the time to make a few adjustments and so far so good...knock on wood! I share an old banquet table with DD as she likes to be in the sewing room when I'm there. Sometimes she does crafts or colors or reads.
I have been taking my quilts to a long armer here for about 18 months and everytime I received back a quilt, I would just cut the excess batting (8 to 10 inches) and just pile it up.
Today I actually cut it into squares to be made into rag quilts.
What a difference a few hours of sorting and putting things away makes! Hope I can keep it neat and organized! DS did comment on how he didn't realize that I had so much counter space in the sewing room! I really would rather have been sewing but it's a good thing company is arriving this weekend because, I do admit, a clean-up was long overdue :)
