Now that's not saying it is a bad thing...I've adjusted and carry a flashlight when going from room to room. Arguing is just a postponement of where and what I will have to move. Many times I'm not even involved. I just walk into a room and where everything was is no longer. Like I said, I've adjusted.
So anyway Safety Mama, a character she created to do Health, Safety and Ergonomic presentations many years ago was eyeballing the longarm room the other day and noticed a flaw in my work space. Admittedly, I hadn't noticed. I have a tendency to work on the left side of the longarm table. I change bobbins on the left side of the quilt I am working on, oil the hook assembly, rethread the machine, test my tension, my air compressor I use to clean out the hook assembly is mounted on the left side of the longarm frame etc. So accordingly the cabinet that contains all of the essential items should be close to where I do the work. Little things like the bobbin winder, tools, CD player, lasers and the like.
You guessed it. All of that was on the right side of the room. So we spent sometime day before yesterday moving the enormous hutch that holds my threads and some storage items from the left to the right and the cabinet with all of the essentials to the left. Makes sense. No really it does and as soon as I get used to it I will save a tremendous amount of steps. But for now when I go to wind a bobbin, change a CD, get a marker, grab my drink from it's coaster or get my wireless headset I will continue to walk in the opposite direction. I'm sure I walked an extra mile yesterday going right instead of left to get what I needed. Okay, I'm a little slow.
So the longarm room has a new look.
The blonde cabinet under the Thread-a-lobra is now where I guess it should have been in the first place. I'm sure once I remember it's there it will all come together.
