Well…not the REAL sewing room.  The real sewing room is upstairs, and I can’t get there right now…so in the spirit of making do, I moved my machine, ironing board and piles of stuff down to the main floor.  (Note: the person I live with is very tolerant…)

I set up shop in “the back room” off the kitchen, where we often eat and read the paper, and where my computer is…now all heaped with stuff…and you can’t get to the cookbooks (what a relief!)

and here’s some of what is going on…projects…

project V of G


including Anne’s quilt.  When I was at the Lost Coast Culture Machine in the fall I started a muslin and thrift-store-fabric quilt (my 1/3 is on the left below.)  Anne decided to work on it and I agreed to quilt it for her when she finished…it arrived yesterday…

and then…the BONUS card…fruitcake #2 arrived from Ellen (which was very lucky as we’ve devoured fruitcake #1 because of it’s little-known medicinal qualities…)
