From Messy To Clean And Usable
I showed you this photo of my flannel board with some of the stuff removed a couple of blog posts ago. Kind of messy around the edges and the center looked the same before I cleaned that area off so I would have a neutral background to snap my photo. After getting the photo I looked at all the stuff I removed and decided to sort and put away or throw away and remove the rest to make it usable as a design board or quilt display area again.
This is how it looks now – big difference isn’t it? I have hung a few of my favorite small quilts for display. Upper left a miniature given to me by my friend Geta Gramma from Romanian Quilt Studio. Check out her blog, Geta’s Quilting Studio too. The next one to the right is one I made my mother in law many years ago. She died a few years ago and now this makes me think of her every time I look at it. Next is a postcard made by Geta Grama. The bird wall hanging was made by my friend Margaret. The small blue one under the far left quilt by Geta is a piece I bought in Paducah of Hmong applique. I thought I might stitch it into something but so far I haven’t come up with an idea for it. The largest quilt is the one I just finished.
I like that it is cleaned off and now can use it again, beside the fact that it makes my sewing room/studio a little neater looking. At least on the wall it is neater looking but my sewing table is full of pieces and parts of my current project which I will show you in a while after I get it finished.
