Slowly I'm getting back into some semblance of a routine. First I had the joy of having DH's presence after ~ 15 months of him working away from home, 3 out, 1 week home. Then I had that small thing called a legacy quilt to pull together and it's accompanying Artisan showcase. Then I did a bone head thing and broke my HQ16. And then Christmas....and then my HQ16 was repaired...and they gave me a wonderful gift in the labour charges. I had to pay for the 2 computer components that were custom made which was more than fair.
And while the machine was in the shop I got sulky and decided that I would rearrange my whole creative studio space so that I could get an extra three feet of quilting width. And the machine is back, the table has been extended and rebalanced but things are still in a muddle. Slowly I'm getting things sorted through. I had 2 bookcases and a 4 drawer legal file cabinet to relocate. Did ya know you have to empty these to even budge them?
Just so you know, I'm not really complaining...I'm just letting you know where I've been and what I've been up to. No stitching, no sewing, sorting! Hufflepuff style!
We have almost no snow, but all hard surfaces have a thick layer of ice from a few nights of freezing rain. The birds are checking out our birdhouses, I'm planning this year's plantings, and I'm generally feeling great. Hope you are also!
