Still we are cleaning up and getting rid of things, trying to get to the point where the sewing room/office will be transferred to the living room and scattered about the house so we can start the redo – it will be awhile.
While Mike, Melanie and Ric got the chair out of the house (it was heavy) to bring to their storage building I got the car packed with everything that was in the corner of the living room and brought to the donation center – I was very lucky I got there when I did – as I pulled up behind the truck ahead of me who was in the process of getting his truck bed emptied I knew it was a good time to check my phone which I had heard a beep on a short while before – text message – got my message read and scanned email – and it was my turn to pull forward – did so parked and got out to open the back and chat to the young men that came to empty the car – they are all mentally disabled (is that the proper term now? not sure) I always want to personally thank them for their help. As I glanced up about six cars had pulled up behind me! wow I was lucky I got there when I did – by time I left more had pulled in – everyone is cleaning out their house after Christmas it seems.
But as you can see more has been put in the corner that Mike will use for his computer things – it is going to get crowded!
The area for the sewing things looks like it will work out and I’ve looking at corners and places in the house to stack my stuff in so it will be handy – I could box it all up and put in the workshop but then I won’t be able to find things when I want them.
Now of course when you move furniture – the heavy kind it always leaves these indentions in the carpet – how the heck do you get rid of them?
One thing I have read – which I have not tried is placing ice cubes in the indentions – let it melt and then use a brush and carefully brush the fibers back up – well this work – I sure don’t know but I’m willing to try it once and see what happens. I’ll let you know – the ice sure wasn’t melting quickly it was still there when I went to bed! I’m trying it in two places before I try the rest.
I did begin to baste one more hexie flower – and yes I will be taking the hexie project along for the trip to Virginia.
And of course a little more Postage Stamp quilting was done. I was going to bring in the square standing hoop to set it up and show it to you all but I waited to long in the day and it was getting dark in the workshop – no light in the loft area – other than a small window on the east & west walls- where some things are stored and it was on an upper shelf – I will need Mike’s help today to get to it.
