Saga of the machine shed
Well, the DH started to take it down on Saturday, but he overworked himself and had to stop. It was humid as all get out here this weekend. The DS arrived safely from Kansas on Friday and spent Saturday with his friends. So today at 9 AM all 3 of us went out to work on taking this behemoth down. This thing is a series of 5 or 6 panels across and there are at least a gazillion bolts in each panel. It was 30 feet wide and 50 feet long and about 20 feet high in the center. We got about 20 feet of it down as of today. I only worked out there for 3 hours but I felt like I spent 3 months out there. Some of the spaces between the panels are only about 4 inches wide and they used to be about 2 feet. This thing crinkled like an accordion! Maybe by the end of this week we can have it all down. We just have to wait and see. I did get a little sewing done. Made the Lucky charms runner from Fast and Furious. I was also in a machine embroidery class with Eileen Roche and Marie Zinno on Friday and Saturday. What fun! I learned some new techniques and of course I spent some money on things that will make placing designs on garments a lot easier. It was good to get together with folks who like doing the same things. All in all I learned a lot and now I look forward to applying what I learned!
