I'm Ready Now...

Yesterday was spent regrouping in the studio.
I do [have to do] this after every major project.

You know the drill:
• clean off the cutting table
• put away all the stray spools of thread
• empty the waste baskets
• grab the compressed air and
blow all the lint off the machine parts
• vacuum up all the little threads
• assemble the materials for the next project

The studio is clean now, and waiting for me to walk through
the door to start the Williamsburg Consort fundraiser quilt.

Today, there will be a lot of fabric going under the rotary cutter.
I hope that tomorrow I can show you piles of fabric in various
shapes and sizes just waiting for me to begin sewing!

The photo today is another item in the studio.
It's a cabochon, reminiscent of Wedgewood, with acorns
adorning its surface. The cab is mounted on a magnet which
attracts to another magnet that you place on the backside of
your fabric or project to hold your needles.
Soon enough I'll show you where I have it in the studio.
Not yet, though. (giggle)
I'm joining the Bloggerette's Sorority! Our
hostess is Karen from Some Days Are Diamonds.

I decided to leave you a note before I head to bed. I always enjoy looking to see what you are up to next. I am doing the Summer rose swap. It is the favorite time of the year and the Peace rose is one of my favorites. I enjoyed readin about your visit with your friend. Have a wonderful weekend. Your Missouri Friend

Can't wait to see the quilt girlfriend and what you have done in the studio. I thought the acorn was white chocolate sitting on dark chocolate! Show's you where my mind is. ;)
Have a fun day today.

Can't wait to see what you're getting ready to work on. And I know how good it feels to have a studio that is clean before every project. I do the same thing myself!

Love setting up for a new project, just not too good at finishing them. That's a trait I so admire in you, all the finished projects.
