Almost Back to Sewing..

Posted by ritaweeda (My Page) on

Well, it's been 2 weeks since the sewing room was shut down due to a plumbing leak. (Chiseling hammer into the cement slab, fine cement dust covering everything, you know the drill.) There was flooring to be patched, etc. so it wasn't until yesterday that I was able to go in there and try to vacuum the fine layer of cement dust that covered every surface. I tried to cover as much stuff as possible with sheets and removed my machines, ott lites, etc. from the room before he got to work but there was a lot of cleanup. I tried to get it all put back together but pooped out by about 4 in the afternoon, dragging cabinets and bins and tables back and forth, my bad back wasn't cooperating. Hopefully today I can get my machines and lites back in there and be ready to go again. I'm in the machine quilting stage of a log cabin and want to get it done by the end of next month - DS's B-Day.

Good luck with getting everything back to normal. That's a LOT of work! But don't hurt yourself trying to do too much..then you'll be out longer!

RE: Almost Back to Sewing..

Aw, Rita, I hate when these things happen! That dust gets into everything! Don't over do it, or like Jennifer said, it will be longer before you get back to sewing.

Glad you are getting your sewing room back to normal and reclaiming your space.

Best to you,
