Ahh, finally, we're getting somewhere. My quilting room is 75% set up. We've made 4 or 5 car loads and 99% of all it went to this room! :D
This picture is from standing in the doorway. The table set up is going to be used as a cutting table - I just need to find some way to raise up the legs. I've thought about bricks, but that'll be very painful to stub my toes on!
Left of the cutting table will be another table exactly like it for my sewing machine.
Below is going to be where my computer and printer will be. My computer table is about the size of the green bin in the picture. I conveniently have a cable hook-up right where the black fabric is.
Here's a view standing by the closet. I have the just-right amount of room to stand and comfortably turn between the ironing board and cutting table. I'm also thinking about hanging a piece of warm and natural batting above the ironing board for a mini design wall.
And see that white little box on the cutting table? In there are my good scissors and rotary cutter!!!!!!!!! Found! I'm so relieved. But I had to spend overnight without a clue where they might be! Not fun. :)
And you might as well see the "damage" I've been doing to the closet - stuffing it with fabric! This is the first time I've ever had most of my fabric all in one spot.
I had one of those "yikes" moments when I saw just how much fabric I have. Think I'll be able to make a quilt or two? ;) But I had to go to Bonnie's Stash page and to Ami Simm's Show me your stash to make me feel better - I don't have it THAT bad. :) But it was a little wake up call that perhaps I need to shop my stash first before buying anymore!
Hee hee - I think I've been posting more because I'm trying to avoid packing. Realistically I've been getting one car load over every night - when it's cool enough! My husband goes back home after unloading the car with me and I stay and unpack and organize. Doing it little by little has made this whole move not as overwhelming as it could be.
I know I won't allow myself to sew until we're all moved in - and with a room like that, I have great motivation to keep packing! Maybe I'll turn on my machine next week! :)
Other things happening today:
-bake some brownies cuz it's my husband's official birthday today
-pay bills and give change of address
-grade a test (160 students) that needs to be done by Thursday
-start to clean up where my sewing stuff used to be - TONS of little thread and fabric snips
-and pack. Have I mentioned that? ;)
