Welcome to South Texas where it is just to hot and humid to be outside! One day I will realize that I am not 50 and cannot take a lot of this hot humid weather! (Not sure when that will be…).
I am recouperating from a marathon cleaning of the Studio Rooms. I may be worn out, but it was so worth it. From the cleaned out bookcase and getting fabrics back in the right place in Room 1 to cleaning out 37 Elfa drawers, miscellaneous binders, downloaded patterns that were printed out and never will be made, to preparing a gift box for Susan in Room 2! She will have a field day on reading her new books and enjoy making something pretty with the fabrics that I am passing on to her.
It always feels so good to share with others. Lisa stopped by yesterday and I loaded her down with beginning books for her. She will also have plenty to read and stay busy learning all about our quilting world.
The last 2 years I tended to just put things here and there in different drawers, not really remembering what I had purchased and when. I now know where everything is and so ready to start on a new quilt, BUT, alas, I have 7 quilts to quilt on the long arm and hoping to have them done by the end of August – quilted and binding hand sewn. I also found my copy of A Quilter’s Dream pattern!!! YUP, I had attended a workshop class with NB Guild in mid-2000. It was a walk down memory lane for sure!
Yesterday I finished making the labels for 8 quilts and 2 table runners. For some reason I decided to make them larger than I usually do, but these are older projects and some had a history behind them.
I ordered 2 more Horn Sewing chairs like the one I purchased for the Z44 in the Den. The 2 chairs in the Studio were getting to the point where I had to used extra cushions (back issue) to sit on them. Susan is going to take the other 2 chairs so I am very pleased that she can use them they still have a lot of life in them.
So for my Slow Sunday Stitching I am going to try to start tacking them down to the quilts. Heaven only knows where they quilts will be stored – I think I have some room in a closet!
I have almost finished 9 more of the Dresden Plates – just 4 more to tack down and it will be on to Number 64 – getting closer to 105! Then the circles (UGH)!
Today I am going to load Raggedy Ann and Andy on the long arm and work on selecting the stencils for marking A Dreamer’s Quilt which will be loaded on the Z44! As you an tell, I am a week behind my goal of having them loaded last week. But loving my clean and organized Studio!
Have a wonderful Sunday and a great week!
