So, I’ve got a sewing machine again!
My sewing room is open for business, even if it’s not the full bore, I can lay my hands on everything kind of business. My design wall is up, the sewing machine is in place, the ironing board is set up. I know where the boxes are which contain rulers, cutters, scissors and thread. I have my latest project fabrics here. Sadly, I don’t yet have my cutting table or mats, so while I can machine quilt, I can’t yet cut the sashing strips for Bougainville Nights. The trailer needs emptying before I can bring that table and my desk over, and currently the trailer is full of bicycles, bike cargo trailer and various other odds and ends, waiting to be unloaded. The energy for that will come another day.
However, it has been a great encouragement to start arranging stuff in there. To the point, in fact, where the book case at one end and the china cabinet at the other end of the library part of the room are in place, the sofa and rug are in place too, and although the sofa is covered in stuff, I’ve covered the stuff with quilts, which offends my eye a lot less 🙂
