Oh my…my sewing room is still a disaster. Here is proof.
Well, this picture isn’t so bad but others sure are…
Things are piled up EVERYWHERE.
My hope is that this might be one of the last weeks of complete chaos. My countertop is scheduled to come in near the end of next week and Buck said he’d try to come home and help me put it all together. Fingers crossed it works that way.
In the meantime, I threw a quilt on the quilting frame and tackled that this week. I’ll share more about that on Friday. But do you know what that means? I only have a few more quilt tops to finish before I am completely caught up with quilting all of my quilt tops.
My focus this week is to keep working on these quilt tops while I keep working on painting and finishing projects in the garage that will be coming to the sewing room.
I previously had a clothes rack here where I hung all of my finished quilt tops that weren’t quilted. I decided to take it out. My rationale. If I kept a place to store unfinished quilt tops, then I would always have an excuse not to finish quilting the quilts right away. If there was no place to keep them, then I’d likely quilt them right away….right??
It looked like this….
So I took that out and moved this here instead….Isn’t that MUCH nicer? Plus it’s a display of quilts and who doesn’t love that more?
Many of my favorites are here. I can see a couple I should probably have out and on display downstairs, as they are fall quilts, but oh well…not happening now. I’m too deep in this sewing room clean up.
My Franklin treadle sewing making is in the parlor cabinet. Kramer and the kids got that for me for my Christmas/Birthday present one year.
I have figured out that I am selling my Singer 99 in its cabinet.
It’s a sweet little machine and runs wonderfully. I REALLY like it and have enjoyed being its owner but, I don’t use it enough and in the new sewing room configuration, it doesn’t fit which makes me sad, but it’s okay.
I bought it at a garage sale a few years ago. You can read the whole story about it HERE.
99’s are really petite. It’s only this big… 12″ is all.
She’s a 1956 model. She’s aged well.
I paid $50 for it. It’s in good working order and I’m only asking what I paid for it. There isn’t a chair for this.
If anyone is interested in my machine, drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have A LOT of work to get done before Buck gets here, painting and upholestry projects and more, so hopefully the wait for the big reveal won’t be too long…I’m hoping in two weeks, I’ll have it all done. Fingers crossed and again, if anyone is in the market for a sweet little Singer 99, I have one for you!
