Yesterday the focus of cleaning was this table. Well, to be entirely truthful, it was only on this end of the table. As you can see, the pile is almost as tall as the machine.
But look at it now. And everything that has been moved has either found a proper home or has been thrown away.
I did finish the scrappy log cabin top so it has been put on the “to be quilted” rack. Of course I still need to make a backing and binding for it but that is for another day.
I finished the fusing on Fishy #5. I now have three fused so I will be putting the applique stitching on the “to do“ list.
Oh, and did you notice my new cutting mat? It is yellow on the other side but I decided that purple brightens up the room.
I drew the pieces for Teapot #10.
And then I got to play with fabric, again. I now have 4 teapots that need the applique stitching so I guess my machine is going to be humming pretty soon.
But not today. Although I plan to be back in the studio this morning my primary focus will be to pull out some pantographs to take to chat with some new to longarming friends. People are always asking for ideas on how to choose easy pantos to learn on. I have been part of the Urban Elementz club since it started and have lots and lots of examples of easy, relatively easy, and “what were they thinking” pantos to use as examples. We will also be helping one lady learn to use her Red Snappers.
Back to this morning……if I get my pantos picked out early enough I am hoping to be able to do a little quilting on my owl. I have some ideas of some of the quilting I would like to do on him so I need to get a move on.
The cord to my computer died yesterday so I am having to work on battery power. I am unplugging DH’s computer every once in a while so I can recharge. This is not fun at all!!! And, as I look up, I see the wind-up clock has run down, too. Maybe it is just that this old girl is running down? Oh, say it isn’t so. Gari
