Here we are in November, did anyone see the moon
on Halloween ?
I spent some time outside enjoying the sight of the clouds scudding
along and giving glimpses of the full moon - a blue moon I believe.
This could possibly be a boring read today, nothing interesting to show I'm afraid
thanks to a hiccup with dental treatment involving more visits then
were envisaged and swallowing quite a lot of pain medication!!
An emergency pacemaker clinic visit, a meeting with the cardiologist
involving blood tests and taking things at a slower pace
also held up quilting progress.
So, dealing with scraps, lots and lots of scraps as you will see below
a flimsy red scrap bin - falling apart as you can see,
a 16" square bin into which I have just thrown scraps over the
past few years, however, I have three more bins larger than this one
also tightly packed with scrap pieces.
I thought it a good idea to empty this one onto the floor
and I had one heck of a shock at the amount
16" high, 28" wide and 36" in length!!!!
I hastily crammed them all back into the box and decided to
make a start on sorting this week, I think one box each week
will keep me occupied.
Shifting furniture around in my little studio came next and I
eventually found a use for an older sewing cabinet.
I enjoy having my computer in here but it is a small room and I needed
to think outside the box a little.
So here we have the cabinet closed up with computer sitting happily
but no room for my legs of course and I have
the beautiful colourwash quilt by
Wanda at Exuberant Color
above the screen.
On to the room for legs
door swings open with pens, glues, stickies, binder clips
and other fiddly bits, pus I have the large holder at the bottom
for patterns, notebooks and so on. I sit comfortably with legs tucked in!
When the computer is not in use it sits on my cutting table right up
against the wall, the top flap then opens to the left hand side giving me
an area of 51" long and I have a padded and covered piece of
board to sit on there, I then have a good size ironing area.
To do this I have to roll the cabinet more over to the right to meet up flush with
the cutting table.
Told you it could be a boring post didn't I?
However, I hope you will read what I have written below, it's not boring, it is important.
A few of the blogs I visit and have visited for many years are
coming up with notice that they are not secure sites,
they have never switched to https, this is a simple matter of going into settings
and a quick tick solves the problem.
I am no expert and certainly would not have a clue of how to go into all the
details as to why it is so important for all of us but
Ann at Fret Not Yourself
whom I have followed for many years has written two
extremely informative posts with excellent information, she has kindly agreed
to my giving the link above to the latest post above on the subject and the link to her
original information is given in there also.
I do hope you will visit.
I'm wondering if I have room somewhere in my garden for this beauty.
Before I head off to make dinner I would just like to wish all my blogger friends
in the USA a safe time in the days to come, sending my best to you all.
Please take care of yourselves.
