Not Feeling Well Again
It looks like my son brought home a virus. There were so many kids out last week the teacher could not even go over some of the assignments. She has to wait till everyone returns. He has felt bad since friday and I woke up today feeling bad.
I really wanted to sew today. I did get one more poinsettia block finished. That is all I could manage. I also picked up my studio a little and vacuumed the floor. I throw things all over the floor when I am in the middle of a project. This time it was thread. I try all different types so I can choose the one I like for each piece. So I thought I would show you the 2 things that everyone comments on when they come into my studio. The first has been called my "wall of thread" I love the little thread stands they sell at JoAnns. I just nail them into the wall. I like all of my thread out where I can see all the colors. I don't like digging through drawers. The only thread I have in a drawer is Mettler on those skinny spools. I don't know why there is not a universal spool with a universal holder on each sewing machine. I have stopped buying thread that come on funky spools so if you want me to buy your thread you better fix that! The next thing is a shelf that I bought at Michaels. I think is was less than 10$ and it holds my rotary cutters and scissors. My stabilizer sits on top. It is nice having those things off the table and floor.
Blogger will not let me post pictures so I will try again tomorrow.
