Today is D day - Delivery day. I have been checking the shipping status of the fabric online and it is on a UPS truck as of 5am this morning on it's way to my front porch. I have my cutting table ready to go and the cutter has a new blade. How anxious am I for it to get here???? I'll tell you how anxious, I'm going to show you pictures of the inner sanctum - the sewing room. I'm sure you have all seen the fab pics of Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill's studio in the latest American Patchwork & Quilting, haven't you? Or you have seen Joanna's pics in there before, or Sandy's of American Jane fame? They all have studios to die for. They have studios that magazines want to photograph. Well, I have a room that is jammed packed and never gets thoroughly dusted. But, if it is tidied up a bit - it is quite functional. The sewing room is for machine piecing, ironing, and STORAGE. The rest of the house makes up the other parts of my studio. Cutting and Telecommunications is in the family room, as is my stitching area - the couch. Shipping and Receiving is in the dining room. Yes, I am spread out like an eight day wash. That's okay, because it is D day. The featherweight has a new needle and is rarin' to go. This is where the new fabric will live once it gets here.Once we get 4 quilts cut and the other "stuff" cut - the fabric can probably be squished into these 2 shelves.
So, it is a rainy Monday here, but that's okay because we have a covered porch. Bring it on, Mr. UPS man. I will be busy for the next week or so. Bill has been handed a folder with the menu's of all the take-out restaurants in Ann Arbor. He is on his own.
