Hope you had a good day. :0)
As most of the country, we are in drought conditions here in Arkansas. Today, we were blessed with rain and it is suppose to rain, I think, through tomorrow morning.
A few blogs back, I mentioned some projects I was going to work on (love quilt, table cloth). I took one look at my sewing area and realized I was not going to be doing any sewing until it was straightened out. Over the holidays, I let it become a “catch-all”. Oh, it was a mess!
My cabinet was not in good order either.
So, I straightened it up. Boy, did I let it go too far. I usually try to straighten it up after each project, so that it is ready for the next, but I guess with everything going on with holidays and such, I let it get out of hand.
I’m happy to report it is back in working order. The cabinet is now organized to where it holds more than before, and I can close the doors.
Then it was time to tackle my sewing/cutting table. I found a few projects that I need to finish before I start on the love quilt and the tablecloth. You know how it is, you go through your stash and lo’ and behold there’s a UFO (un-finished object).
I pinned up two of them so that all I have to do is quilt and bind them tomorrow. I had two others also, but they need more than minor quilting and binding, so I put them back for later.
I also had some pieced blocks I acquired in the past. These blocks are not that pretty to me, but I hated to throw them out. I’ve been wanting to make a laptop pillow to use, so I used the blocks.
When not in my lap, holding the laptop, it can be a pillow on the couch.
Now, my sewing/cutting table only holds the two projects I’m going to finish up tomorrow and the fabric I’m going to use for the love quilt.
As I stated, it became a place for everything. I had Christmas decorations, the things I brought home from work out of my cubicle, scrap-booking items, etc., to put away. I also had some pictures my dad drew. He gave them to me over the Christmas holiday. They are now in a safe place.
I feel like I have accomplished something and I needed that.
