I just couldn’t let it go. I wanted to get up in the morning knowing the sewing machines are set up so I went back down and worked more.
This does not mean I’m ready to sew! The cutting table is piled several feet high. I don’t have a sewing chair here unless it’s buried in the downstairs garage. I can always carry a breakfast room chair down til I can buy a chair. We’re going to have to buy several rolling type chairs because I want one at each sewing machine but I’ll move one of those over to use at the serger. We also need one for the downstairs computer. I think we have one already in Vince’s office upstairs.
I need to come up with a plan for those windows. The sheers that are there now have spring rods and the windows Boots like to sit in . . he’s pulled those down so two windows have sheers and two do not. I may end up getting blinds and hopefully remembering to put them up when we’re not in there so Boots doesn’t ruin them. If I’m down there sewing at dark, I want those windows covered. See the nice, deep windowsills? Boots had those in Texas and he loves sitting in them.
I kinda feel like I’d like to have a TV in there so I can watch Flosstubes but . . who wants to tell Vince that his wife who has complained for 25+ years about her dislike for TV now wants one?? I’ll see how much I sew or knit or stitch in there before mentioning a TV.
You may not be able to see it in the picture but there’s a black acrylic/plastic insert that goes around the Bernina that makes it fit in the cabinet. I was thinking . . I’ve seen that thing somewhere and figured it was in the sewing room but it was on top of a cabinet in the downstairs family room, with the one that makes the Bernina 930 fit the same cabinet. I haven’t seen that thing in 10 or 15 years. How on earth did those two things (1) get packed together and (2) end up here without breaking?
There’s no way I’m going to find a place for all the yarn tubs so there’s going to have to be a corner of the room that’s stacked floor to ceiling with tubs. Maybe that will be my incentive to knit faster.
I’ve given up trying to organize the fabric by color and am just piling it on the shelves. I’ll work on organizing it later because I don’t like seeing all the colors mixed up but right now, clearing the floor space, getting things where they go and being able to sew, iron, serge, wind yarn . . that’s the most important thing.
I’m so happy to have the machines set up!
