The area in my basement where I have a ceiling (drywall) is the eating area when my group is here. It is also the area the pool table and another cutting table are located. It is about 15' x 30' and is the only part of the basement where dirt doesn't sift down through the floor boards onto everything. I moved the first wire rack over there last week, one was already in that area, and there was just one more piece of wall space for another shelf unit. This piece is from my quilt shop in the early 1980s. I forgot how heavy it was until I started to move it 45' from another corner of the basement.
I remembered my little wheely thing so I tipped the shelf unit over on its side and put this under the center of it. It didn't work. The shelf unit just kept sliding off of it instead of pushing it. I had to put one foot on the edge of it and push it along. It only took a few minutes to get it over to the new location.
Then I started the load bearing exercise that is supposed to support our bone health. I made 10 trips up and down the basement stairs carrying these fabrics down from the main floor studio. Fabric is heavy! I do most of my cutting in the basement since I have 3 tables with 6' cutting mats on them. You can see by the clock I finished at 11 p.m.
We were pretty busy at the Quilter's Heart going out of business sale yesterday but there is still a lot of good stuff left at 40% off. Batting is not included in the sale since Sandy will continue quilting for people in the same location.
