This is where I was at last night, with the sewing room pretty organised and cleaned. You will notice my ironing board on the table, where it sits when there are no retreats happening. When the table is needed for sewing, it is moveable. I love my large ironing space, especially pressing quilts, and or backings. (I don't iron many clothes!!) And note all those empty shelves?
And this is how my office space looked. I had been through the whole room, all around Max's space, and the angels area, and this is where I have been today!!! I will say that it has been a lovely weather day, and I did spend awhile (maybe almost 2 hours??) sitting in the pergola eating lunch, and reading a book.
It is now 7.30pm and this is what that same area looks like now. I found a flag in my sort out, so have put this up in readiness for Australia Day, which is 24 days away.
I will admit that there are still tubs of "STUFF" under my desk area, although I can say that the tubs have been sorted, and the contents of each tub is with it's friends!!
And this pile, is still under review, with some to go out to the shed, and some to be parted with.
I have filled the bins, which will be collected tomorrow, and then I think I can fill one again, with more rubbish. I have even had a quick sort through in the filing cabinet, and created an empty drawer! My shelf space on the back wall still needs some fine tuning, but I need to visit the hardware store first to get some more shelving and brackets.
Sorting through lots of stuff takes awhile, especially when you come across photos etc of days gone by, and the last few days have been no exception. Looking at photos really makes you aware how much time has elapsed when you see such young faces! And it only seems like yesterday.
I am not sure when this photo of our group was taken, but could have been around 2000?? Maybe just before or after that. A real trip down memory lane, seeing the faces of people, some of whom are no longer with us.
And this one was taken in 2006, and is yours truly with my Best Of Show quilt, Woven Inspiration, at the South Australian Quilters Guild, Festival of Quilts.
Time for an early night, been a big few days. Catch ya soon.
