I enjoy collecting antique quilts and making reproductions of them both big and small. I've made a few baskets and I'd like to make more. I dabble in knitting and would love to learn rug hooking, but it's hard to find time to do it all. I work in higher education and I love my job. However, I do spend a lot of time dreaming about quilts.
What I remember about when I last sewed was how neatly I had straightened my sewing space. It took me the better part of a day and a new plastic bin or two but I had things cleared up enough to get some serious machine sewing done. That was over three months ago and all I've accomplished since then was two little star blocks - they didn't even get pressed (see them on the sewing machine bed?). Yet, somehow, even though I don't remember being in my sewing room at all this mess appeared. I don't remember what I was working on and where things belong so how am I supposed to clean up this mess and get back to business?
This is my cutting table. It's bigger so a lot of stuff can be on it and still leave me room to play. I did work on the only project I've been able to manage this whole year - stars. Cut a few out today and packaged them up. They are all ready to take with me this week.
I would like to get busy on one of these projects but until that first table gets cleared progress is impossible. Plus, I can't really decide if I want to get back to applique on Mary Mannakee, binding the small quilt under the star blocks, finishing up the red star idea I had over the July 4 holiday or doing more of the blocks from hst for my Edyta project. So, when in doubt, stitch stars. Oh, and I did press those two measly star blocks and put them away.
