.....surfacing

It's been awhile since I posted!  This is not because I haven't been sewing, but I've been too busy to get my act together to write a coherent post LOL.  We have been working hard on sewing machines and updating the for sale blog, cleaning up machines and testing them.  And, I have a new ceiling in my basement!  We built the house four years ago, but had to save up a few pennies to put a drop ceiling in this large room.  We found a great deal on tile and fluorescent fixtures this summer and it was time to get it in.

putting in the frame

lots of figuring around the angles

ceiling in

this took a little thinking

this treadle machine is just like the one I learned to sew on - it now serves as our coffee table

we added lots of daylight tubes

I found "create" at an antique shop

my black Singer 301 in a trapezoid cabinet - I finished the topper from leftover hexagon blocks

some toys on the ledge

the six Singer Featherweights we serviced and tested this summer ready to find new homes :-)

all my rulers are sorted and organized again - on the wall is my selvage cube quilt

I opened up my Singer 403 in the curved front cabinet and did some sewing on it last week.  Love that machine!
This area needs to be dealt with yet!! LOL  I have to sort my book shelves first to make space.  Hopefully, I will have time this summer.
Sorting and organizing a sewing room is an ongoing, never ending process, but it's always fun to root through and find things you've forgotten about.  Now I need a few weeks of UFO retreats to make headway on the stuff I found :-).
