I know it has been more than three months since I posted. My life has gone into overdrive.
- School ended, which meant I had to pack up all my personal belongings from the classroom to bring home, and all the rest for the summer. My teaching job has ended in favor of a big move to Michigan!
- I took online classes for enough credits to renew my long-expired Michigan teaching certificate, just in case.
- We have made two more trips to Michigan with loaded trailer: at the end of May and at the end of June. Now that most of our things are in Michigan, we know there is just too much for a small house.
I did have time to work a little bit on the maze quilt in June, posted here. I was able to get two more rows done, and work on another, before I had to pack up my whole sewing room and put it all on the trailer. Talk about withdrawal!
In March 2011 we had an auction. Here are some of my lovelies that had to sell at that time.
Three of the four you can spot in this picture actually ran well enough to be used daily. The one in the blonde cabinet was from 1927 or thereabouts and once it was oiled it worked very well. I’m a sucker for old, mechanical machines without electronics.
To the left of the hide you can see a treadle machine in cabinet.
Here is another treadle machine, electrified. I believe the same gentleman bought all the sewing machines.
Now I am trying to sell one more. It’s clean and a beauty, but I really have a very small sewing room where I’ll be living.
My next blog post will be as a Michigan resident. I promise some updated pictures on the maze quilt soon. I’m anxious to get it completed!
