This weekend was supposed to be dedicated to getting the quilt room put together so I could at least get in there and do something. But nothing got done save for the purchase of another quart of paint for the desk top and the cutting table top.
Unpacking a box this afternoon yielded a surprise. This double wedding ring template survived!
I spent a whole afternoon taking the pieces of fabric I had and wrapping them on the boards. That way they are all uniform and will not only shelve well, but look better than just randomly folded.....or if you are like me, just stuffed in there somewhere.
At the present it is organized by color. The solids are on the second shelf and the patterns on the bottom. I still have some from the Bridge Over Troubled Water event to fold on boards, and a few pieces from a purchase just a few days before the flood.
The BOTW was held while I was out of town, of course. A group of quilters who did not flood, solicited and organized donations of supplies and fabric. The quilters who did flood thereby losing their supplies and stash, got to choose things to take home. There were over 70 machines donated. I am sure the new ones went to "special" people. And there was some raffles of high value items.
I won a set of project boxes that will be very useful. Paula took myinvitation letter since I was out of town and shopped for me. She got me about 20 yards of fabrics, several patterns and about 8 really cool fiber art books. She scored some really great dog fabrics!
And she somehow managed to score me a Janome 415 machine to replace the two smaller machines I lost. So that was nice. I know nothing about it, but it looks to be in good shape without a lot of wear.
All my machines have the decals showing wear, but this one looks to be pretty new.
Anyone familiar with a Janome 415?
