This is how I’m working right now. The pic is a bit dark because I took it towards the window. Can you make out the white? Still a yard full of snow.
The in wall ironing board has been ordered and should also be here soon. What I give up in ironing board size, I’ll gain in room space.
Gradually, I’ve been picking away at what came out of the room, a seemingly growing pile of stuff. However did it all fit? I know it’ll never all go back in but a nice freshly organized room where I’ll also have space for my glider rocker will be nice.
This afternoon it’s damp outside (no gardening yet with the snow) and I felt the urge to do a little sewing. The Cascade quilt from Victoria Finley Wolfe’s book was calling to me.
Before all my renovations got under way, I started a sample to see how it would go and I really liked it. I think it’s much like piecing a braid only with gentle curves. At the time I set it aside because I have another quilt started (who doesn’t) but then I liked it so much, I decided to make it baby quilt size.
I recommend this one. It’s very addictive once you start cutting and adding colors.
Inexplicably, I’m suffering such a great amount of pain right now in all my joints, especially my back. I haven’t been able to do my usual length of sewing, walking or yoga. Although maybe it’s a phase - I’m hoping so - perhaps my doctor will have some insights when I see her Tuesday, I do know my iron is low.
Also, space isn’t quite conducive to artwork yet, so I’ve been relaxing a bit more and doing some knitting. I’m lucky to always have something to do. Sometimes too much!
At a workshop several weeks ago I started this Twister bag and Finally finished it. Well, except to sew a button onto the front. I really had fun with this too. It’s a bit of a change for me.
As is usually the case, I’ve been designing art quilts in my head. I have to content myself with that until I get my space more settled and my body healed.
