I ventured into That Room the other day and……. Pardon? What room? Oh, that’s right! I haven’t told you about That Room yet have I? Hmmm….well can we keep this just between us? Don’t tell anybody, particularly not Anne, ok?
Anne and her husband, Malcolm, came Down Under for a visit a few months ago and Anne spent a day with us sewing, at my home. Our Sitting Room, where I “entertain”(!) is directly opposite the erstwhile Dining Room, which is now my Sewing Room. There are no doors on these rooms, just wide openings with a good view from one to the other. Now normally I don’t mind my friends seeing my Sewing Room, but Anne was (at that stage) a “visitor”, and I couldn’t possibly have her see the
mess disarray chaos slight disorder in there. So, I moved all the fabric filled plastic bags, and project filled fabric bags, and extraneous paraphernalia into the bedroom next door – which does have a shut-able door! – that the Kettles use when they come to stay. Needless to say the Kettles haven’t been down to stay for quite some time!
Since Anne’s visit, I’ve ventured in a couple of times, taken one look and backed out again!! But I took my life in my hands last week and started sorting out the pile of quilts on the bed. Those that are finished have been laid out on the bed on top of each other (whoever next comes to stay will be very warm!!), and in the course of this sorting came across tops that need borders, tops that need basting/quilting and quilts that need binding. What? Only binding to be done? Thankfully there have been some cool days and cooler nights this last week making binding a do-able task. Like to see? The first is Brompton Road which you may recognise as the same pattern Jill made in class….
So with thanks to Miss Magpie for the quilting, I can now add 3 more to the finished quilts…..
