Train Quilt Finished

I finally finished scanning all our photos. For the most part, I quite enjoyed the project. I was getting pretty tired of it near the end though. I have three boxes packed up and ready to move out and one box packed to go into our storage area. And one heaped pile to get destroyed.

Jeff and I have a box of old sentimental T-shirts packed away in our closet and I've decided to make a T-shirt quilt out of them. But, of course, my last couple of projects are still kicking around in the way, so I really need to finish them first.

Today, with real life being so stressful, I decided it was an excellent day to go hide in my sewing room. I finally finished the train lap quilt for my father.
I had this quilted months ago. I really don't know why I took so long to finish it.

Now that we'll be moving into a house with no spare bedrooms, I'll be losing my dedicated sewing room. I guess it would be a good idea to finish all the projects I've got spread all over the place.

I'll probably also be selling my sewing room furniture, which will make me very sad. It's such beautiful furniture. The set is solid cherry and we had it custom made for me about 15 years ago.
We're still working out the furniture plan in Prineville, so this furniture may make the move. But right now I'm inclined to sell it, if I can get a good price, and get something smaller.


  1. The sewing room is so perfect. So at the new house you won't have a dedicated sewing space?

    1. I might set up a sewing area in the alcove off the living room, but I don't think I'll have room for all this furniture. If I manage to sell it, I'll get one of the tables that folds down into a cabinet.
