Yes, it's been bitterly cold in Northeast New York, so cold that it's time to turn on the "red light" out in the hen house. Hopefully, it makes a little difference.
Inside, I've been working on my natural towel warp, and hopefully will be done with it soon.
I definitely need some color.
I've been mending this old quilt in the evenings, my plan is to get it all quilted before I wash it. It's very fragile.
I just love the old, faded fabrics.
Well, I showed you pictures of my sewing table plans. But I have the patience of a gnat.
I really needed a table to work on, and after some careful consideration of the costs, I went to the local furniture store, where they sell used and new, and bought two very reasonable, identical cupboards.
I used the table, because the top is still serviceable, I did have to bungee the middle legs together, as they are busted, as well.
But I think it's going to work well. At some point, I may order a custom counter top for it, same size.
My sewing room is a wonderful place to spend time. Unfortunately, my Bernina is getting its yearly service cleaning, so I am a little lost.
The sun has been shining all day, and that's something to be thankful for, even though it's brutally cold.
Hemmed, washed and pressed all these towels. stocking the shelves.
Thinking today about 2017. Missing Roy, feeling the loss of a friend, trying to understand somethings, while fully understanding others.
Mostly, grateful for everything I have. Still loving my life. My family. My friends. Hopeful for the future.
Happy New Year to all my blogger friends.
2018???? Let's do this.
