So last weekend we moved in and it was chaos. During the week there has just been no time. Any time we had was spent cleaning as the place was so dirty. Finally this weekend we have started rooting through boxes. I really want to make sure I had everything sewing related stored together and clearly marked so I could set up a little sewing area and lo and behold it finally came together. It's great having a drawer. Now I can keep scissors and machine feet in there. I am not sure if there is enough room at the back to feed a whole quilt through but this is all temporary really until we are properly unpacked and have worked out what's really going in every room. Eventually I would love a sewing room with shelves for all my stash, but we'll see. That's a long way off. Can you see the blocks on the floor? The table has always been too low so I got the local wood shop to cut down an old offcut of kitchen work surface which has been knocking around for years. It worked perfectly. Now I can look to my right and look into the garden on a sunny day. Perfect. As of next Monday I have a big chunk of time off so I wanted to be all set up so I can get back to some projects which need finishing off. Hopefully I can saw the blocks of the sawtooth quilt together and maybe get back to the postage stamp quilt. ACE. Then I just need to work out backing and wadding for them both.
