Quilting Again!

After a break of more than a year, today I finally entered...

The Sewing Room!

It's not that I haven't been in the room. Just that it wasn't a sewing room while I was there. It was a guest room. Or a drum room. All the fabrics, notions, thread, etc. were packed away, who knows where.

Today I spent a couple of hours going through boxes, looking for the basics. I'm still looking for my 24" cutting rulers, but so far I've found the scissors, cutting mat, rotary cutters and...

TA DAH!

The fabrics I'm going to use to create the Seattle Streets pictorial directions. I knew they were in there somewhere, and they're just as I remember. Except more...brown and orange. (I actually removed two of the more browny-orangey ones because I have fourteen and only need twelve. Hopefully this will give me a good balance.)

Spent a soothing amount of time ironing the florals.

Is it warped to say I missed ironing?

Totally warped! However, I'm warped as well. I do miss having my ironing board set up ready for new patches!!
