cutting table, computer table, sewing table, stitching chair
back window wall
I have a daylight LED bulb in my floor lamp that I stitch by, and where I had my couch I had to use it even during the day. Well, I decided that since I have so many windows in here, I need to stitch by daylight alone as much as possible, so the big rearrange happened!
the only available wall for mini quilts and such
Now, everything I do [except cutting] is by a window. My stitching chair is by TWO windows - the light on either side will really help me see.
the back wall that still defeats me
I really needed to do a good vacuum as well, so moving all the furniture helped me do that. I'm happy, I even have a plug available for my heating pad while I'm stitching now, lol!
Normally, I don't like to have all the blinds open, as I can see right into my neighbor's house and they can see right into mine. Feels a little like a fishbowl in here. But even with the blinds turned so they can't see in, I have enough light to stitch by without the lamp. Yay me.
So - I have been stitching, I drew up this design the other day and finished it up.

It's called A Gardener's Heart. I really do have the heart of a gardener - but not the hands. Bugs scare me, I don't like dirt, and I tend to kill everything I touch with the sole exception of my African Violets. At least I can stitch what's in my heart. And I do love the verse!!!
I had a sweet little surprise in the mail the other day, dear Karen from KaHolly sent me this darling decal!
It really does make me sew happy! I'm not sure yet what I'm going to put it on - she had showed some on her blog that were on a sewing machine, which is darling, but as I get familiar with my treadle I want to retire my Viking and use my Featherweight and the treadle mostly. You can also put them on tumblers and mugs, so that's another option. I love it! Thank you Karen!
I'll leave you with a picture of our sugar-coated woods - be well, be happy, see you Monday!!
