I think the new sewing room used up all my effort this year and we just realized that the garage and garden hadn't gotten as much attention as needed this spring.
a spinning wheel from England...really?!
Like this Queen vintage hand crank sewing machine that I bought at an auction in England. That is right...it was in the back of the garage still packed in a moving box! I'm trying to get this little machine operational...otherwise it is just a big doorstop!
Our goal is to get through all the moving boxes put in storage about 7 years ago. Making some tough decisions...we packed up my husband's to the ceiling yesterday and made a trip to the charity shop/Goodwill donation stop.
put these aside for a friend...knew I had them just not where!
But I have to move slowly! Last spring the neurologist made some big changes to my MS meds. After trying it for a couple months I decided it wasn't working...made me a bit too much of a zombie! I'd rather clarity and joy with a bit of pain than total numbness! So last week it was like waking out of a fog and of course I then immediately over-did it!
That is ok though...I have lot of quilts to hand-sew binding on a some BBC mysteries to catch up on!
