A bit of machine quilting and more cleaning up

As I watched the Tour of California last evening I did a bit more cleaning up. I have this lounge chair in my studio and it was piled with fabric, bags, t-shirt pieces, clothes, and measuring tapes (I wondered where those were!) I started to put stuff away before I took the picture so this is about half of what was there.
Now everything is in its proper place.

I then decided to clear off the guest room bed.
I wanted to take the new electric blanket I bought for my sister to use when she came and replace the one on my bed. Mine just didn't heat up much anymore. I had washed the sheets on my bed after work and put the new blanket on it when I went to remake it. The only thing that went back on the bed were the pieces of clothing that were left from that clothing quilt that still needs finished.

There is no room in the closet for this and that is a sign I have too much stuff in the closet. Hum... I am not sure I am ready to tackle the closet yet. I need to find an outlet to sell some of my smaller quilts that really won't work for baby quilts. I don't want to open an etsy shop and I haven't figured out ebay. I am not looking to make a lot of money. I just need to get rid of some of these pieces. For example:

I did get started on machine quilting the AC/DC piece after I oiled my machine. It really needed some oil. I forgot to take a picture of what I got done so I will post it tomorrow.

My studio really needs cleaning too.

I had a nice glider in the basement that was being used for batting storage the past few years. I finally cleared it off this week and sold it through my local Facebook yard sale groups. Now I'm working on pulling together china and crystal to take to Replacements. They don't pay a lot but these were all wedding gifts and I just need to get it out of the house.

I have no idea where the partial post went. I must have developed a hand movement that auto-sends posts lately!

Love your little quilts. I understand about having to move some of them out. I was thinking about that just this morning.
