Fall is moving in here in Denver. The leaves haven’t fallen yet, nor have they even turned, but the weather’s gotten cooler. One week is was in the upper 90s during the day and in the mid 70s and night, and the next week it was mid 80s during the day and 60s–even 50s!–at night. I have cautious hope the air conditioning is off for the rest of the year.
Now that fall is moving in, it’s time to get back to the quilt tops. We had a house guest for several weeks, and then more house guests here for a night every couple of weeks. My sewing room was converted to a guest room for a good two months. Right after I finished the Duvet Cover, actually. We finally deflated and stored the giant air mattress and moved my sewing machine back in last weekend. I’m still getting things organized in there, but I’m itching to get back to piecing.
It always makes me happy to put the sewing room back together after converting to a guest room. When it’s a guest room the whole thing is rather thrown together. Air mattress. Random cabinets of drawers that do no belong in a bedroom. When it’s in sewing room formation, though, it just works. There is room to walk around the room, the sewing machine faces out a window, an ironing board sits waiting to be used in a corner. It’s all nice. Everything in its right place. I suppose this makes no sense.
I have a new project to start–a Christmas quilt. And I’m still working on my improv quilt.
