I have sort of lost all my steam for finishing that beginner’s quilt class sampler. I got the borders on, have to figure out how to do the miters. Our teacher showed me again, so I hope I can remember. I have to practice machine quilting and I hope I’ll get to do some of that tonight. I don’t feel very motivated to work on Chelsea’s Boutique and I don’t know why. Perhaps it’s the gloomy weather. It’s so dark when I get home and I just want to relax on the couch. I am sort of getting an urge to rearrange my sewing room. Since I got a bigger table and put it up on risers, i use that as my cutting table. But then I have this other table that used to be my cutting table and that is sort of just a catch all table at the moment. So I am debating, should I put the catch all table up on the risers and take the bigger table out, or should I just take out the small table and move the big table over? It’s such a dilema. I also have a problem with all the dark spots in my sewing room. Since most of my quilting/sewing is done at night, I need proper lighting. I have several small lamps that only light certain areas and this feel inadequate to me. I have to keep the ceiling fan and it only has one light bulb on it. I might have to do some research about those large florescent shop lights, like this one, that can be plugged in. If I get those I’ll have to see if I can get the “natural light” bulbs for them. Well, after doing a quick search. Looks like I can get the shop light for about $30 and then I would have to pay $20 for two bulbs. Might be worth it, I am still not sure. Wonder how difficult it would be to install track lighting? Oh, that would require some work from my husband who is not a very willing Mr. Fixit. I guess I will keep researching and report back later. The shop light might the best alternative until I am able to quit my job and quilt/sew during the day. More progress soon. Until next time.
Happy Stitches to You,
