The photo below is the first customer quilt done on Millhouse in the new workroom; lots of indigo fabrics, subtle and subdued, it turned out well. Now that we know everything is performing properly itwill be full steam ahead on the other customer quilts.
how did we ever get this many? It's so lovely to have the right thread to match almost any quilt, so I will never complain about the thread stash, but it needs to be a bit more organised in future.
We've left two comfy chairs in the shed, for those times when we can have a leaisurely coffee break, and also for some of our elderly clients, who appreciate a place to sit and catch their breath.
I'm trying very hard to get my sewing room set up, but nothing feels right just yet. I'll keep moving things around until I hit on the perfect placement for my machine, and ironing board and cutting table. I feel bereft without my sewing. I'm still making tiny bits of progress, up to 7 blocks now, and more units ready to go, but so far I haven't had a marathon sewing session and I miss it.
My gazanias are loving the mellow sunshine these days too; this is one of my favourites, it's like a plaid flower. So cheerful and pretty, I say hello to it on my way to the workroom each day.
