Earlier in the week, one of my coworkers brought me an old sewing machine that his daughter was no longer using. He had mentioned it in passing and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Best case: vintage Singer featherweight. Worse case: piece of junk corroded from living in his garage for ten years. In this instance, it was a happy medium, a fairly modern Singer, that was just a little grimy from lack of use. Thursday, I got it up and running. Sue is going to take it in to Rosie's Place where she teaches sewing. So she was quite happy to gain another machine for her ladies.
After a quick lunch, Sue offered to help me "organize" one of the corners of the Studio. Secretly I was worried that this was an Intervention sponsored by the noticeably absent Joannie (felled by stomach flu) and Marion (visiting friends in Chicago). I asked Sue if she was certain this was how she wanted to spend her afternoon...
|Before the cleaning intervention.
|Sue is amazed with some of the loot we've extricated from the corner.
|Shelf in cart, we head for the register.
|Check out all the plastic boxes. Looks like a lot of
people want to get organized after Christmas.
|This poor little block was wonky before wonky was popular.
Luckily, my quilting has come a long, long way!
Sue left around 5pm, but the cleaning bug had bitten hard and spread to all corners of the Studio. Mike finally came over around 7:30 pm to see if I wanted to come back to the house for dinner.
|Corner storage post intervention.
|I can now see the top of the counter!
|I hung up some decorations. My friend Dianne at work painted
these letters for me. My Studio theme is hot pink and zebra.
|On the right side of the Studio, I have space for two friends. Joannie and Sue keep an extra machine here and I have an extra machine here for Marion also. I have a third table on the other side of the Studio, so four of us can sew at once. I ordered the cute signs you see here online from Joann fabrics. "Create" came in green, so my friend Dianne painted it pink for me.
|Dad's garage on a good day...if you look closely,
you can find my Dad in this picture.
Sue--Thanks a Million!!!!!
