Sunday Stash Report and update
I have been sewing on my Quilt for the quilt show. I will show more tomorrow for the design wall but so far I have a bit of this and this.
I have used up about 4 yards of fabric in the past week or so. I am not making a dent in the stash I have. I bought fabrics with my birthday money. :)
I have not been longarm quilting. The tension screw rattled out and there is a bit of a hold up in getting one. No part number to order it and we live over an hour away from the sewing center to get one. Mom will be there on Wednesday and hopefully fix the problem. We bought more thread and backing fabric and then hit a stall. Sigh.
I ripped out my prayer shawl and started over on larger neededles and double strands of yarn. I knit in a combined style and I just can't find a pattern I like. I think this will work. I will knit a few more rows before I make a decision.
Phase II of redecorating and organizing the house is underway. Spring cleaning I did the closets. We had to rearrage the living room to accomodate a new TV to replace the old console dinosaur. I have decided I am packing away all the collections I have that don't fit in the china cabinet. I need a less cluttered sleek look. I have several collections in boxes but I can touch them periodically and get one piece at a time out to showcase, if I want. I am ready for a style change. I live in a 100 year old house and not sure yet where I want to go with my hodgpodge of things. I want a more Art Nuveau look found in the Arts and crats period. Or possibly a more modern twist on Colonial. Not the country, victoriana, upnorth woods melting pot I have going now. No new furniture yet but maybe soon!
