Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!! As you know, I have been very patient with my in-house handyman. He has been neglecting the studio task list for quite some time. When he mentioned the household repair list the other night, I suggested that there MIGHT be a few things to be done up on the second floor.
This time, he agreed...
First, I wanted to get the thread Q off the sewing table and up on the wall:
The thread hasn't been added yet, but the Q is the first thing I see when I walk in the door. :o))
That was easy! What else???
Next, my other thread rack needed to be added to the adjacent wall:
Then came the main event for the evening...
Although, you may not be able to see what he's doing in this photo:
My favorite feature of the studio...
The Gallery Wire has (finally) been installed.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, Handy Husband!!!
Everyone, join me in a HAPPY DANCE!!!
Yesterday, I selected a quilt to display...
... And this side of the studio is complete.
It feels SEW much more inviting!
Just ignore the boxes. I'll take care of that storage area beneath the longarm another day. Right now, let's just focus on the HAPPY. In case you can't guess, I am one JOYFUL quilter!!! :o))
But WAIT... There's MORE!!!
Last night, DH decided that it was time to take care of THIS box:
I opened it the other day, but at nearly 50 lbs., it was too heavy for me to lift out:
I did take the tool kit and instructions upstairs:
That MUST have been the clue that DH needed because after dinner, as I was making a bit of progress on the year's H2H quilt...
... My new heat press arrived in it's recently cleared spot in the studio:
(Sorry Needleb, but...) Since the Janome doesn't get used very often, the heat press fits perfectly in the space beside it and this piece of equipment should make quick work of applying stabilizer to T-shirts. Thank you to DH, who tested it out to make sure it was functioning properly:
From this angle, it looks like I might have just added a new project to my list! I believe that I'm going to need to make a cover for the Heat Press. That is a job for another day, as well.
Until next time...
It's starting to feel more like home!
