Houston - We Have Lift Off!

Don't you just love a dependable tradesman you trust  :) Yup, the electrician was here at 9 am this morning and now we are all fired up and connected to the mains  :) 



All lit up like a Christmas tree! 

I moved the frame round and also put in my sewing machine.  The low voltage lights work really well I barely needed the daylight lamp I use on my frame. 

I had a rummage in the debris of the old office and found some thread, pins and my machine maintenance kit, and had to have a little play!


This is a table runner I've quilted up for a friend.  I hope she likes it!

Tomorrows task is to buy a new ironing board  :) 

I had visitors today too!  Not only did the electricians wife call for a looky see |(they only live round the corner), but Sweetiepie and Angela from Fenland Textile Studio came over for a catch up too!   Lots of chat and tea drinking, with great exchanges of idea, brilliant!

Happy Quilting!

Oh it is so very wonderful. I think I would move a cot out there for myself. How so very nice for you to have that.

Sweet beauty! Maybe you can paint some of those pull down shades with pictures of quilts on them :) So pretty! It is a shame that the sun fades quilts.. because this is a vision to be sure!

What a wonderful space! I'm sure you'll do great things there. Wish I could do something like that but I live in a townhouse (I believe you would call it a terrace house) and the neighborhood covenants don't allow us to have sheds or other structures in the yard (garden).

Is your sewing machine on a SewEzi table? I've got one of those on my wish list, is it any good?
