This weekend we are clearing out our basement so that we can have it finished. As with most people, we have a lot of stuff. We moved to this house a few years ago and in that process purged and the last few years I’ve been mindful that the day will come that everything still down there will come upstairs. So, I thought that I was doing a great job purging, even after our move. Let me say, this past week I have become friends with the drop off man at our new Goodwill Store! I’m gonna miss him.
That is my way of complaining that I had to make some decisions on what to give away, what to pack away (for the duration of the build) and what I will focus on the next 10 weeks. My quilting machine will be moved upstairs, right in the middle of our living space. I think it is a good time to focus on long arming and have my personal quilt projects on hold for awhile. Here is a photo of the machine as it is now, in the basement. I’ll post what it looks like upstairs in a week. My family is going to get tired of the staccato of the stitches, but I won’t.
