I can’t believe I haven’t posted on here since July 4th! My sewing room organization came to a standstill due to health issues and then vacations. Two of them (the vacations, that is.) We were away for 11 days in August and we have just returned from 9 days away again. We do love our time at the camper but we are home now till next May.
I have not been totally without projects, though. I did finish my curtains for the camper, finally! I forgot to take photos of them while there, so that will have to wait till next spring. I also felt the need to make simple, square coasters while there, too. I got tired of my wood/cork ones sticking to the bottom of the glass and then letting all the water fall on the table, anyway, getting our playing cards, papers, etc., wet. Not helpful. Anyhow, I bought some lovely flannel (1/4 yard made 8 coasters!) and I left 4 of them at the camper, bringing the other 4 home.
These are actually a MUCH darker blue, but it doesn’t matter. They are functional and washable. They don’t clink, clunk, stick to my glass or drip water everywhere. And they were fun and EASY.
After laundry, shopping and a doctor’s appointment Monday, then it was back to my job for the rest of the week. I actually have two more Md. appointments this week and then next week I begin one month of jury duty. Not excited about that, but the government doesn’t care. So how come it’s my second time (last one being over 25 years ago) and my husband, who is nearly 70, has never been called??? Hmmmmm???? How does that happen?
Maybe this weekend I can work some more on the sewing room. I need to pull nearly everything out and then figure out where to put the two (I hope I can use both) cabinets. Then put stuff back in the best order I can arrange. I think some things are going to be edited and some are going back in the “other sewing room.” (don’t ask 😉
I will come back with updates on all of that.
I did manage to score some lovely things at the Goodwill in Wytheville, though, and will have some photos of that, too. Coming soon…!
