Working for Uncle Sam (US Census Bureau).
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Working for Uncle Sam (US Census Bureau).
I bought the house next door to us. It came up for sale. It's above us. And we didn't want any neighbors that close. It has a basement and a second floor. It used to be the post office in this area years ago. Part was a post office and part was the house they lived in. It all looks like a house now.Originally Posted by EdieClay
I have my sewing machine in the kitchen. That's where my work area is at. I have my quilting frames in the one bedroom downstairs. The bed that is in that room is full of UFO's that have to be completed.
The diningroom and the living room are full of fabrics and things I've made. I open up when there's holidays on the weekends.
I may put my embroidery machine upstairs. And get it set up to use.
I still have tons of things to get out of boxes. I want my hubby to build me some bookshelves upstairs. So I can get all of my books, patterns and magazines up there. A good place to set and look through them.
I love the little built in porch! I set out there a lot and work on stuff by hand. Great place to put a binding on a quilt. I've got one laying there that is almost done.
The bad part is, I have a little small quilt house too! It's over top of the cellar. My hubby built that for me. It's full of my yarns and some craft supplies.
And I have a room in the house here so full of craft supplies. There's no way I'll ever use it all. I'm hopeing sooner or later I can get it all up to the big Quilt House. We will see.
But I love it up there. I can just craft away with no disturbances. And plenty of room if someone comes to sew with me.
Hope your sons hand is ok!Originally Posted by musicaljan
I love your little doggie. I have three of them. And all three are senior citizens. Time is coming soon for one I know. He's down in his back a lot and already on two pain meds. I don't look forward to it.Originally Posted by gramquilter2

Let me see if I can remember what all I got done in the past two days.
Monday- Was such a mixed up day. Hubby was to work night shift. Got called and had to go out of town for the week to work. So I got forced to have to go to town. Bank, dollar store and the grocery store. I cooked a pot of elk chunks to make soup. That got canceled and I made BBQ's instead. With him going to be gone, there would be know one here to eat the soup. So I'll do it again when he's going to be home. I stopped at the post office. Got packages shipped out. Stopped and dropped off some crafts to go in the shop and pick up a check from last week. So I didn't get hardly anything done with crafts Monday. Not what I wanted too!
Tuesday - I painted and I'm almost done with another load of things. Now to get me some clear plastic bags to put my candy corn in. I think I'll do them three to a set. Might do them a little different in some bags too! I still have to finish my candy canes. I sewed a little on my postage stamp top. I'm getting there. It's slow going working on it by hand. I'm not getting done what I want to with my crafts. It's another rainy day today. Been setting and rocking one of my little doggies also. He's down in his back. I'm not looking forward to having to make a decision on his part. But I'm not going to watch him suffer all the time either.
Wed. Today, I have been sewing on my postage stamp top. Been on the phone with my Mom. She's going to see a Dr. this morning. She is not doing to well. She would of done good if it hadn't of been for the heart attack she had during surgery. I'm waiting on news of that. I got a lot of you answered on here. Still need to check some PM's. Then it's back to crafting. I may go paint. I want to get those things done. Oh I forgot!!!! I've just about got my Santa's eyes done. Then I can start putting hair and stuff on. Then make the clothes. I'll be glad to get these done. Hope the lady like them. I'll take a pic when I'm done.
Those of you working on Christmas gifts. The addy I put in for the rag ball ornie, you should go to it. I think you can still pull up the rest of Trish's things. Any ways she may have a tuterial on her pocket tissue holder. Good way to use up scraps. And they fit perfect in Christmas cards as a little giftie.
I'll be back!
I'll be finishing the quilting on a baby quilt. I finished another one last night. My Pfaff 1222 E will be doing the quilting and binding. The quilts are for "The Linus Connection", they have an
annual challenge quilt contest. The Timeless Treasures fabric rep. gives us her retired fabric samples. This year we got a good sized packet of batiks. Its been fun figuring out how to use the fabrics.
That's wonderful news! I'm so happy for you!!Originally Posted by lynn_z
Well today I was to leave & fly to St. Louis Missouri for a Babylock Jewel class on my longarm. My plane left at 9am without me. I have been working hard for the last week on getting all my work done on my job, all bookkepping & payroll completed for my DH's company, sewing a quilt top for a raffle, getting my children (1 dog & 2 cats) ready for boarding, sewing two 36 by 45 quilt tops for the class and I just worked myself into exhaustion!
I had to travel 70 miles to the airport so I was to get up at 5am and travel 1 1/2 hours to the airport. Well I slept through my alarm. It was still going off when I woke at 7am! And the airline wanted another $400.00 to get me there today. Well there is next month....
In the meantime, I need to make place mats for an auction. Since I am off today, that is what I will do.
