It's been raining for several days now,so gardening is out of the question. I've been sewing instead, and the Mitchell St blocks are finally in one piece.
Tomorrow I will clear away all the madder fabrics and haul out the drawers of blue fabric. It seems like years since I worked with my blues, and I feel the need to rummage around and cut some blocks from them. I'll keep working on the UFOs as well, plus I have so many containers of scraps that need to be dealt with. It's a never-ending job, trying to get the sewing room under control.
Our latest addition to the workroom is this steam generator. We iron so many huge backings every week, and our old iron just gave up. Hopefully this will help tame the crumpled backings our customers bring in. It's pretty fearsome, and the steam fogs my glasses up instantly; it will take a bit of getting used to I think.
