This jumble of fascinating objects comprises my studio.  I have at least four projects going on at any one time.  Ordinarily, no one but me sees this mess or has to work in it.  However, I'm going to have company at the end of the week, and since she's a quilter, she needs a place to sit down and sew!  Yes, Mary is coming to visit!  Part of her visit will be to teach my guild the Tri Recs ruler applications, and part will be just girl fun.

So, one thing at a time is being put away, filed under level of need for immediate location and continuance of work, with an eye to two things:  the class I'm teaching this week and the class she's teaching next week.

But first!  One of my UFO's was regarding my new serger.  I bought this Babylock about 6 months ago.  It has all these neat bells and whistles, but the real reason I bought it is because it threads itself with little puffs of air that blow the thread through a series of tubes to the right place in the serger.  Well, I have never taken it out of the box until today.  It's all hooked up, and I have my manual ready for a daily attempt at operating the thing. 

Here's my sewing cabinet, expanded and turned sideways so the two of us can sew at the same time.  Now to organize the rest of the room.

As if I don't have enough interesting things to take up my time, I'm trying a beatiful and detailed knitting pattern.  I'm not much of a knitter, but if this turns out half as pretty as the pictures of the completed pattern, I'll put it on my blog for you to see.  I'm knitting a fingering weight of a lavender cotton thread.
