Gee, maybe we should make each weekend last for 7 days because that’s when I seem to be most productive!
First thing on Saturday morning’s agenda was to reorganize my studio because I was having problems with my laptop being situated too close to the modem which was transmitting a very strong wireless signal causing my computer to freeze when web browsing. Because there is only one telephone jack in the room, the modem had to stay where it was. I ended up moving my desk to where my sewing station used to be and now things are just tickety-poo!
Then I shifted my sewing table over to where the desk used to reside.
Did you notice my scissor collection on the treadle machine in the background. It’s grown somewhat. *wink* And that’s not all of them either!
Here’s one of my stash cupboards where I ‘shop’ for fabric.
And two others…
And my Featherweight station where I made my nine patch minis not too long ago with bins of wool and fabric stored beneath it.
The first thing I did after the rearranging was to cut and prepare the fabric for Kathy’s Irish Chain challenge which I spoke about here in the last paragraph. I decided upon a turkey red and a white tone-on-tone.
I then made up 20 new siggy blocks for the international siggy swap that I belong to because I had completely run out of them. I received three last week and I needed some to send out in return.
On Saturday afternoon I completed stitching my July FFF while watching the Montreal/Philly hockey game. Sorry but you’ll have to wait til the First Friday in July to see it, *wink*
I started to piece the mini Irish Chain quilt on Saturday night but fatigue set in so I set it aside for a fresh start on Sunday. When I turned in on Saturday night, I started to read the 11th book in the Elm Creek series called The New Year’s Quilt.
Yesterday, I completed the top to the Irish Chain challenge.
Do you think I should add a small border or just leave it as is?
Today is a holiday in Canada. Mr. Painted Quilt took me out for a wonderful breakfast and the rest of the day is mine to do with as I please.
