binding!

Before the move I prepared 10 backs and tops and delivered them to my long arm quilter. She graciously stored them for six months and is now quilting them over the next few weeks.
I had also made some bindings and sleeves and labels before the move, and was able to locate them this week.
So, binding is happening!

tip # 40--add a bow

Although I enjoy wrapping presents, some packaging is too lovely to cover up so I just add a bow.

hanging up!

No sewing yet, but quilts are being unpacked. And, one is hung!
You see it as you enter our home.

I made this quilt in 2006. I had a small remnant of the wonderful Japanese fabric of carp kites and used every bit in this quilt.

setting up!

Before everything went into storage in July, I had my machines serviced. I am amazed how much oil is underneath them. I will take time to clean and re-oil before actually sewing.
BUT, look!!
I cleared off a space! Enough for a machine!

We are building out the closets of our new place one by one, as we determine how we will use them.
My fabrics and sewing supplies will be split between the guest room closet and a sewing nook. Here you see the nook with piles and piles. I will build out the closet first, then sew in this space for a bit to see how I am using it before building it out. I don't expect that to happen until spring.
But, sewing can and will take place this week!
Now, to find my iron...
