It's been another busy week. My roof was scheduled to be torn off last Tuesday and then cancelled due to possible rain, which never appeared even though it was predicted 25% on Thursday. Meanwhile on Thursday the repair of the dry rot on my chimney was begun. All the wood was taken off, and some weatherproofing put up. The siding will be completed on Monday.
Meanwhile my roof is supposed to be started on Tuesday again hopefully. Three days this week were spent shifting things around in various rooms, and a major decluttering and getting rid of a bunch of stuff, a trip to Goodwill. I also took down my old Handi Quilter frame in my old office, in preparation for delivery of my new Handi Quilter Moxie on Friday.
I wanted to make room on some shelves in my old office, so I got rid of a bunch of stamping magazines, and moved a bunch of stuff to shelves in my bedroom.
Here is my room cleared out for my new machine.
I started putting my frame together. I had a minor hitch when I discovered putting the tracks on, that I had put the wrong screws in the cross members. I should have put flat head screws in, and the ones I put in were sticking up too much to allow the tracks to lay flat, but I got that straightened out. Everything came in pieces, but there are excellent instructions included, plus an app called BILT that shows you how to do things. It says 2 people can put it together in 1 hour. I have already spent about 3 hours working on it, but that is OK. It will get done when it gets done.
Friday I had the pleasure of getting together with 5 other ladies for one of the mini groups in the guild. We just brought our own projects to work on for 4 hours plus the lunches we brought. I had to leave an hour early as my Moxie was due to be delivered. But I had a great time!
