1. Proof that the Sashiko project is not left by the wayside. I have very little stitching left to do!! And then pillow or put it on stretcher bars?
2. So, things took a bit of a hiccup around here with the recent heart issues, I am now wearing a Zio monitor for the next day, or 13, depending on whenever the thing unsticks or I reach the end of 14 days. I have to click a button on it every time I have an episode and then write an entry of what was going on, how I felt, time and date. I suck at keeping diaries, but I will try harder with this.
3. The new sewing room is almost complete!! We still need to move a chair up the stairs, waiting on more muscle for that, and construct a cutting table from IKEA Kallax bookcases and a pine top. This will give me storage for the items still living in the Chifforobe, lower photo on left.
It’s a family piece I got from my grandmother’s house. Stripped 3 layers of paint and when I couldn’t get the “red” completely off my neighbor explained it was Cherry wood. LOL! So I whitewashed it and it’s been a treasured piece ever since. Scientist Girl gets this piece and Diva gets the same grandmother’s piano. From my Dad’s parents I have a cedar chest and a wash stand. I guess I need to ask who wants which of those. You can barely see the cedar chest in the photo. Covering it is a quilt made by my cousin’s grandmother on her Dad’s side. Aren’t family hand me downs wonderful!
