    Well I have cleaned and organized my sewing room
    as much as I could until my daughter moves into her
    new apt. on March 10th.

    AFTER she is out I can than start moving my fabric
    bins back into that room so that I can have more space
    in the sewing room.

    Here are a few pictures to give you an idea of my setup.

    First is kind of a full on view of the machine area.

    There is quite a bit of stuff in this room that at some point
    will be turned into RAK goodies. But I won't say what or where
    it can be "found" in the pictures.

    I cross stitch.
    I love little scissors-embroidery style...I collect them and use them for my fobs.
    think applique is pretty but hate to do it
    you could use single blocks and turn into doll quilts or mug rugs.

    Kris,

    Those are in a bin that happens to be in the "fabric" room (where
    daughter is at).

    The ONLY sewing/quilting related fabric NOT in that bin is my black and white
    crossword puzzle fabric. In fact I am not even sure where that fabric is at. I
    KNOW it is on a bolt (about 1-1/2 to 2 yards). but not sure which room and
    bolt stacks to look in.

    Last night I was RAK'd x2. First was from Lawsonmugs sent me 3 postcards from a nearby town where she lives and a card with a fat quarter cutting chart. The chart will be very handy to have. I think that white barn could use a barn quilt block on it. She also sent a home made card and envelope. How did you make the envelope, that is really neat. Thanks Mary.

    Then 2nd was from Krystyna. I got teary eyed when I opened her package and saw what was inside. She made me such a wonderful and special gift. It is something that I will keep forever and I'm sure will be kept in the family long after I am gone. She made and embroidery of Jesus holding Emma and framed it in the most beautiful frame. Krystyna you'll never know how much this means to me and I will treasure it forever. Thank you. You are such a special person and I'm glad to have you as a friend.

    I am trying to learn to hand quilt as well. I got some stencils last weekend and plan to make a small wholecloth wall hanging on my first attempt.

    If you're looking to free up space Louise, I can take your old machine off your hands, that would free up a LOT of space!

    HAHAHA

    Nice try Teresa.

    But if you came to visit someday I will let you "play" on the old
    machine (sorry NOBODY gets to play on the new).


    Krystyna - Already did that, not much to clean yet in the new
    machine, but the old machine needed the cleaning.
    Can you believe that while my new machine was doing its "thing"
    stitching out some praying hands that it broke a needle?

    Did I happen to mention just HOW much I love this awesome
    new machine too? Tell you what I did. Here are some of the things
    I am have been enjoying learning about the new machine.

    1) I think it is just cool as heck that I can wind my bobbins WHILE
    it is doing the embroidery. So I was able to get my next bobbin
    color (for FSL) ready without having to wait for it to finish what it
    is doing. AND it stops itself when the spool is full (my old machine
    you had to stop the winding).

    2) I discovered when the machine broke the needle it popped up
    a message saying turn machine off before removing plate. So without
    thinking I turned the machine off. Now normally I would do this ANYWAY
    but I was "shocked" that a needle broke. After I turned the machine
    off I thought "oh darn now I "lost" my "setup" of praying hands #4"

    So after cleaning out broken needle piece putting everything back together
    I proceed to see if I can "setup" the machine the way I had it when
    did the initial setup for 4 praying hands to stitch. Low and behold IT WORKED!

    You can BARELY tell there was a "problem" with the stitch out.

    Ok I am sorry I will stop rambling on about my new machine, just so
    excited to be learning all these fun new things this machine can do that
    the other didn't/couldn't do.

    Now back to working on some RAK's, SP gifts and other embroidery.

    [QUOTE=Quilty-Louise;4944910]More questions about what you do.

    1) Do you cross stitch? Yes, but the counted cross stitch

    2a) Do you like to do a LOT of applique (that involves cutting small pieces
    and/or in tight corners)? YES YES and YES..LOVE doing applique What kind of scissors do you use?Not really sure the brand name..
    2b) If you applique do you do fusible or raw edge turn (or both)?Haven't tried fusible ..usually I just turn
    2c) What kind of scissors do you use?

    3) Do you like "blocks" that are not finished? (size 12-1/2" I think)?Working on doing a quilt that has multiple types of blocks that are going to be in it..

    4) Do you like BOM patterns that are "missing" a one or two of the
    months (like the Joanns BOM's)?

    5) Have you seen those magnifying glasses that clamps to the machine?
    Hand quilt here..do have a machine but only use it if I have to rush to get something done..which is not often
    (click on this LINKif you need a better description). I bought one of
    these when I saw it on clearance, but it didn't fit my machine and I
    could not return it.

    In a previous post I mentioned hand quilting; the thread I had has been
    spoken for already.

    I am ALMOST finished with "cleaning" my sewing room, and have added
    MANY things to my bins for RAK goodies. In fact I now have 2 bins that
    are 24qt size FULL.

    Well that is about it for the moment, if I have anymore question I will
    come back to ask. Maybe I will get pictures of my "clean" sewing room
    and post them for you.

    Hi Louise here are my answers:

    1) Do you cross stitch? No

    2a) Do you like to do a LOT of applique (that involves cutting small pieces
    and/or in tight corners)? Yes, I love applique. What kind of scissors do you use? Small Simplicity with curved tip.
    2b) If you applique do you do fusible or raw edge turn (or both)? I do fused. I want to learn needle turn as well.
    2c) What kind of scissors do you use? I use several different ones. I have small ones. I have large that are the the spring loaded ones with no loop on top.

    3) Do you like "blocks" that are not finished? (size 12-1/2" I think)? Orphan blocks are cool.

    4) Do you like BOM patterns that are "missing" a one or two of the
    months (like the Joanns BOM's)? What an opportunity to come up with a block or two that will work with the others.

    5) Have you seen those magnifying glasses that clamps to the machine? I have that same one. I got it more for the light. The light wasn't that great and I always forgot to turn it off and the batteries went dead very quickly. But I do use the magnifier and love it.

    On Saturday I went shopping for my SP and found some fabric that I just had to get for myself and for someone else on the RAK that also likes this kind of fabric. I'm hoping to mail some time this week.
