I have been working hard on my January projects. I have been slowly spending a little time daily on the great reorganization project 2015 where we are rearranging furniture and making the music room and Quilting room more useable. I have been sorting through papers and filing them in the filing cabinet. We have the big pieces of furniture moved. We are focusing on the music room first because it needed the bed moved into it. Painting and trim work will be coming up in there! I am so happy because this has been a long process to get to this point and can see light at the end of the tunnel. I am finding lots of dusty things under furniture that hasn’t been moved in a while …yuck. Now the house doesn’t feel so dusty!
This week I am focusing on storage solutions for my fabric and preparing for a cutting table/workbench to be moved in. I will still sew in the dining room but the quilting room will have all the fabric, storage and ironing board too. I have a small house so getting all this in one room is a big accomplishment. Overall, the overflow area with my quilts is the front porch and that will be in better shape because of the added totes filled with my trunk show. We may actually be able to use the space more.
I have to say that I am feeling very good about it all. Deadlines include me hosting quilt group in March and my husband starts highland games practice as soon as the weather breaks so time will be limited on DIY projects. We will be in good shape I do believe to get it finished. He has been a workhorse. Thanks so much to his hard work!
And I would be remiss without some pictures….
nope no pictures of the great reorganization project but a sneak peak at a completed quilt that just came off the long arm frame….. one of my favorite stitches in my favorite color on a fabulous fabric.
And a couple of pictures of a Robert Burns Dinner we attended on Saturday. I love this event, it is a time to hear Celtic music, hear poetry being read, listening to bagpipes and see Highland dancers. We dressed with our tartans displayed, had a wonderful dinner and celebrated all things Scottish. Of course, there was Haggis, but I passed on it and had Bangers and Mash.
