Why do I keep all this stuff? It is so hard to throw away a loving message in a card or letter, sweet drawings the children made for me, a card from a dear friend, etc. I didn't come from a family that read cards and letters and then threw them in the trash. So, I guess I will blame all this stuff on them.
...and then I hear tap, tap, tap,... tap, tap,
so, I hurry up to the front of the house and what do I find.
Yep, Morgan and the big Buff house hen.
(I had to hurry back for the camera but they were still waiting)
The big Buff is the chicken who spent several weeks in the house recovering from a fox attack and decided she liked living in the house just fine.
I thought someone was tapping on the window. Someone was... a chicken who wanted a treat and Morgan has learned that when the chickens get treats she gets to come in the house and get a treat too.
I gave in and chopped up some cabbage for the chickens and gave Morgan some kibble. I just can't believe how well they have me trained.
I went back to work and managed to only keep a hand full of cards and things. Then, Kristine helped me move the large table out of the sewing room. My plan was to set up a smaller table to use as a cutting table and she was supposed to give me an old desk she is using for me to use to hold the sewing machine.
It is a small room and at least with the smaller table there is enough room for me to walk all the way around it which will make it very nice when I am cutting fabric with the rotary cutter.
Well, that's the plan. For now the sewing machine is on the floor. The small table is a drafting table that I can set at level and is ok for cutting fabric, but not strong enough to hold the sewing machine. Kristine said she needs to get some thing to hold the stuff that is in the desk drawers. There is always more stuff.
I'll post another photo when I get this sewing area set up to where I can actually use it, but I already like it better with the long table out of here.
