PICTURE OF THE DAY:
Dale decided to keep himself busy with some trim he took off the worktable!!!! Nothing like a brazen kitty!!
The Spring Keepsake Quilting Catalog arrived today and you can guess what I want to do...order a sample of everything in it. At least a charm set of all the fabric!!!! See what I mean, they had me at page one. So, now in keeping with my challenge, I am looking at what I have in my stash, and more importantly, if there is anything that I really, really want or need? I am thinking that maybe just looking at the pictures will suffice for now. Of course, I will be keeping the catalog, just in case I find that I really need something...
I did spend $15.00 plus tax again this week for the additional desk space. I have used the new work area several times now and find the additional space great. Doesn't take much to please me!!!! I really did not lose any storage space either because the shelf fits under the worktable just fine and it is easy to get to. Also, it looks a lot cleaner without all the wires showing.
I am now in the process of rearranging my things so they are easy to get to. I am going to start out slowly and just move in the things that I need as I work, but it does look like this is going to work out well.
I took out the sewing machine to do some quilting on the next set of pages for my fabric book. The sewing machine was not at all cooperative. I had to stop and straighten the thread out so many times, I was ready to call it quits, but I finally did finish.
A trick to keep the thread pieces from floating all over is to take a piece of tape - I use clear packing tape - and put it next to your work area with the sticky side up. This is especially great when there is a lot of static electricity.
Remember the first four pages of the fabric book.
Here is the beginning of the next four pages.
I also finished my part of the round robin. I added the corner blocks and the ribbon as well as the final round of material.
I plan on working on projects this weekend as I watch the next set of football games. My team made it this far...hope they go all the way.
