Setting up the Sewing Room

Well...we are moved.  Things are starting to settle into the places they belong.  I haven't walked into any walls in the dark for several days.

After being in an apartment for three years, it sure is nice to have a yard again.  I have my morning tea on the patio every morning.

Today, I've kicked Hubby and Itty Bitty out of the house so I can just relax and play at setting up my sewing room.

Although we do have an extra bedroom upstairs that I could use, I've chose to set up in a room in the basement - - close to the laundry room, a 2nd bathroom, and Hubby's "man cave".

Yesterday we went out yard sale-ing, and I found an interesting thing:

It's a cross-stitched piece of linen 19" x 17"  "1928" indicates the date it was made by the mysterious EJB.  The back is equally interesting.  I'd like to take it apart and see if there is any other clues inside about the maker, and why this humble piece of stitchery was framed.

I started my new position on Monday.  WOW!  So much to learn.  Every night I came home absolutely exhausted!


  1. I notice you haven't posted in a while and I just wanted to say that I miss your updates. I hope all is well and that it is nothing serious that has kept you from posting. I have been following your blog for about a year since I found you after googling for quilts made with men's shirts. Blogs take a lot of work and I imagine you have been pretty busy with your new job and move to a new city. Thank you for all the posts you have shared over the years. If you do find your way back to posting again I will be here (I check every week in the hopes that you have posted something new!).
