Yesterday I worked to clean out my file cabinets. I gave the work-study students plenty of shredding to do for the afternoon. I tried to be sure what’s left in the files is at least organized. Today I finished the file cabinets and cleaned out my desk drawers. Have you ever left old rubber bands lying around in a desk drawer? Well, as they age, they certainly make a mess, sticking to whatever is next to them. They eventually get brittle and break into lots of little pieces. Either way, they sure make a mess. I found that papers I had saved for years, thinking I surely would need that went right into the trash with the rest of the stuff. I did save some of my very old lecture notes – just to someday look back look back as see how far we have come. I developed a “Computers in Nursing” course many years ago, when computers first started to become popular. Looking at those notes gave me a bit of a chuckle.
Today I picked up my Bernina from the shop. I plugged it in to see if there was a difference. WOW!!! It never sewed this quietly when it was new!! That was worth every penny of that $75. Also, when I got home, beside my door was this large package. I couldn’t wait to tear into it.
This is my new SewEZ table.
Last night I cut out the pieces for this quilt.
I always like to have some handwork to do. I want to do the applique by hand. If I want something to look really nice, I applique by hand using the needle-turn method. If I’m not really picky, or I have to put something together quickly, I’ll use the fusible method.
I need to go to bed early tonight. Stayed up too late last night cutting out the above quilt and could hardly stay awake today. Nothing more painful that needing to stay awake, but fighting sleep.
Good night y'all....
