Welcome to my blog

Please don't remind me that I'm poor; I'm having too much fun pretending I'm simply "living green" like everyone else these days.

Every once in awhile I find a break in my quilting schedule that allows me to clean up my studio.  I move things and take stock of what I have.  My machine also needs a regular maintenance in order for it to stay in top shape for daily use. 

If I'm not careful the dust bunnies take over my space.  Well, having a couple of days leeway with my quilting schedule this week means I can clear out the accumulation of dust bunnies.  See them on the frame? 

I took the time I needed to clean.  A clean space just feels different.  It feels.... um..... energetic.  Back when my daughter still lived at home I could always get her to cook dinner by cleaning the kitchen.  There was something about a clean kitchen that got her in the mood to cook.  She never cleaned up the kitchen when she was finished cooking but that was ok.  If she cooked I would clean up.  That's how I feel about a clean studio.  It energizes me to be creative.

So I moved everything and cleaned everything.  I even did maintenance on my machine.  Yuck, it really needed cleaning.  I don't like for it to get that dirty.   It's not good for the machine.

I'm waiting on a batting order before I can work on the next quilt.  It should arrive today or tomorrow.  Until the batting arrives I can continue with my cleaning.

Kathi, pretend the popping open is the sound of a beer being opened.
