I had a very nice birthday thanks for all the nice happy birthdays. It was a quite birthday and Melanie came over in the evening to visit a little bit and brought two nice big pots of mums so pretty out on the porch but it was almost dark already when I thought to take a photo. It is official I now get to use my Medicare Card – oh my – never thought that day would arrive this soon! The years are rushing by.
Mike has been busy working on the sewing room floor and about half of it is done – now he works the next 3 days well into the night so no more work to be done on this until Thursday I think – I need to get started working on my design wall boards so they will be ready to go up on the back wall – new flannel has been purchased, I have two insulation boards and need one more which will be too wide so needs to be cut and it will be ready to go up when the floor is done and I can get to it ok. Also need to pick up the base for Mike’s desk. Once the floor is done and the design wall up we are ready to move back into it!! So excited to get everything rearranged and my quilting frame back together – before I get a new quilt on it though I am putting new leaders on the rails – they have needed to be replaced for years and I just kept putting it off – they are the same leaders that were on it when I bought the frame 20 years ago!
My new cutting table – one side I will set my laptop on and the other will be the large cutting mat – the sewing machine will go in front of the window and Mikes desk down from there. More photos next week perhaps?
I did work more on the vine and got this much done – worked more on it last night
And just a little more work on the Round We Go block
Here is a close up of the done section – the fussy cutting wasn’t perfect – but then I’m not perfect – I don’t usually fussy cut so not enough practice at it. Linking to Love, Laugh,Quilt and Small Quilts and Doll Quilts and Em’s Scrapbag .
Thanks to all that order this weekend through my links to the Craftsy sale. I did go in and look but after going to the show last week and making purchases and getting my sewing machine fixed on Wednesday I thought I better pass it up – even if it was my birthday – the show last week and that shopping was plenty. I need to get all my fabric that I have reorganized and figure out where it will all be stored. I think you call all tell I am excited to be getting back into my sewing room soon!
