After much thought, I have finally picked the name “Annie” for my A-1. I’ve received several emails asking if I had named my machine yet?? I got the idea from my friend Kathy G. I always look for little “signs” or coincidences. While I was shopping LAs, I found it interesting that the machine I liked best, the A-1 Elite has the initials “A and E” just like Alyssa and Elaina.
Coincidence, probably…or not? Trust me, that is not the reason I picked the A-1. 🙂 So I was explaining this to Kathy when she was over visiting before I received my machine and she mentioned the name Annie. It just kind of stayed with me and I think my machine looks like an “Annie” now.
I seem to be a little frustrated with my practicing or lack of. I was getting a bit frustrated at the look of my quilting and have been avoiding practicing a bit lately. I was told this would happen. Scott keeps telling me “Just keep practicing and you’re doing great!” I’m just going to have to work through this little “roadblock.”
I have received several emails regarding my fabric stash. It’s small, but it does exist. All the fabric I own has been purchased with a project in mind. I rarely, if ever have purchased fabric just to build my stash. My brain just doesn’t think like that…too bad it doesn’t think the same way about shoes! All the fabric I have is leftover from a project, purchased for a project and then I changed my mind or it’s been designated to a project I haven’t started yet. About 3 years ago, Scott finished our basement. He did a wonderful job! He has a Michigan State Spartan area with cabinetry and mini kitchenette.
Guess who stores her fabric in the cabinets on the other side of the bar?? 🙂 That is the infamous window.
Just to give you an idea of the space, these cabinets are 12″ deep. Here is my stash…
Next cabinet over holds designated fabric for projects I have yet to start. A few are wool projects…
Last, this cabinet holds some more leftover fabric, UFOs and tops waiting to be quilted…
That’s it! I hope I haven’t sent anyone into shock. I wish that I could buy fabric without a “project” stipulation, but then I would be bringing the whole store home with me!! 🙂
Scott and I came up with an excellent compromise. He has a Michigan State Spartan area with Spartan bar stools and I have a place to store my fabric!! 🙂
