Finally I have the sewing machine table done – now to let it dry and get good and hard – a couple days – it feels dry now but it is always better to let it “cure” a couple days before you start to put things on something that is freshly varnished. See how it extends that area out nicely it will give plenty of room for the sewing machine and right next to it the big table for cutting and design and computer. After I get the tables all set up how I want them I will take another photo. I still haven’t decided if I am putting a shelf on this wall or maybe a small wall hanging. I am taking my time deciding this. I also have an empty wall by the quilting frame. I’m really in no rush to decide. I have so many large projects waiting to finish that maybe in the upcoming new year I will do some small projects for a change.
Two leaves done on the 3rd side border for Fall Harvest – I think I have ten on each side so a little more to go.
I’ve been asked to remind a reader what quilts are in the “to be quilted” box – these 3! Tumalo Trails – (104 inches), Retro Air Ship Propellers – (99 inches), and Williamsburg Beauty ( 70 inches square? ). If you click on the name it will bring you to the post that shows the top finished laying flat. So yes I better get busy on Murrieta Stars so I can get a good start next year! Linking to Busy Hands Quilts – Confessions of a Fabric Addict – and Crazy Mom Quilts.
And of course there are the 3 English Paper Piecing projects to finish and a wool applique that I started last year and haven’t touched in almost a year now – Midnight Garden and older still is my center of Love Entwined which will never grow larger than it is but would be nice to finish the center wouldn’t it. EDITED: and the Bird Quilt which Clara just reminded me of this evening! I had intended to get that box back out and then it slipped my mind
