I hate when I don’t get around to posting until after midnight. I could go into my settings and change the posting time but I’ll just title it Sunday.
I always forget how much catching up we have to do after being away. Poor Keith – he has to turn around and travel tomorrow and will be gone all week so he had to help me move things around today so if the movers come this week while he’s gone, they can put the furniture in the places I want it.
There was a little football watching but since Washington is out and the Vikings had a bye week, we weren’t too invested in any of today’s games.
We did run some errands and I ordered shelving – they were out of stock at the store but they’ll deliver them to me here for free. They’re not fancy but they’ll be very easy to set up and 3 of them will fit along the wall behind the area the longarm will go. My thinking is that I’ll have some project bins on the bottom shelves, use the top for storing quilts waiting for binding or finished quilts and the middle 3 shelves for fabric. Several people suggested shelves with castors but I don’t plan to move them around so these will work. I actually like that they’re not metal although I’d originally planned to get metal shelves. Maybe one day I’ll upgrade to something fancier but for now I just need something practical and easy and these should do it!
I also managed some sewing time. I started the first Jelly Roll quilt – the framed 16 patches. I find the pinked edges a little bit of a challenge with my 1/4 inch foot on the Elna so I’m using the Little Foot I bought when I first started quilting. I can’t believe it hasn’t gotten lost along the way because I bought it to work with my first Singer machine but it also happens to fit the Elna.
