The Quilter: Quilting with Malke

Posts Tagged ‘cleaning

I’ve been trying to keep up with a ‘block of the month’ group, but so far I haven’t been too successful.  Instead of making one of each block, I thought I would be real bright and make 2, so I would have 2 more quilts to give to the grandkids [since I don’t think I will ever really catch up].  Only problem: I misplaced everything in the mess of a sewing room I have.  I started cleaning last week hoping that I’d find everything soon since the meeting is next Sunday.  I read somewhere that one should beware of a quilter that is cleaning her room; it means she is planning to move out!  I found the bag in the second to the last corner.  When I excitedly showed my husband, he commented: “does this mean you aren’t going to clean your room anymore?”  RIGHT!  Guess what I’ll be doing all night tonight?  Show you both finished projects the end of December.

I’ve been very busy since I came home from Cleveland; cleaning my sewing room.  I had emptied the whole room out, because I got new shelving, and now I have to put everything back together again.  I’m not having much fun because I would rather be quilting but I like revisiting old friends.

How do you organize your room?

How small a piece of fabric do you keep?

I’m afraid to throw anything out; maybe it will be the one I’ll need for some project.  My not finished pile is huge.  When the room was a mess I didn’t see how many I had,  now I’m amazed.

My daughter, Blima, visited her sister in Argentina and took some pictures of the quilts I made for them.  I will post them this week.
