Balance Beauty Quilting Samson Stitches

Happy International Quilt Day!

I took last week off work to start getting our house ready for the market. I worked straight through from last Saturday until last night and I am still not finished, but the house is looking very nice…I don’t think it has been this clean in years! It feels so fresh and bright, and I smile all over inside and out of myself just to look at it.

And happy co-incidence, it is International Quilt Day, and so I saved my sewing room for last. Now whether you have a sewing room or not, I know you can easily imagine the constant state of chaos that a sewing room can exist in! Which means you can easily imagine not wanting to wade in and clean up.

But it cleaned up beautifully!

I even polished the furniture and washed the floor. And do you like my garbage can? It’s a giant crystal vase and I love it! I don’t throw “regular” garbage in it – it sits next to my sewing machine for threads and scraps too small to keep. Special, pretty garbage. I figured it is better to use it for something than to store it “safely” away in the cupboard where nobody ever sees it.

Yes, that is a treadmill in my sewing room! Go figure.

I watch TV while I walk.

Yes, that is my presser foot inside the cupboard. Yes, I stick my foot inside the cupboard to sew. Lol!
