Whew…what a week!! I’ve been busy. The little time I did have to dedicate to the sewing room was entirely filled with polishing and sparkling the new-to-me wood trim in the upstairs hallway, bathroom, and sewing room. I did get a lot of stuff put away and reorganized. As long as I had so many things out, I’ve gone through a little destashing and reorganizing. My piles are MUCH smaller.
I’m making progress. This is what is left in my bedroom…
This is the island …in the sewing room. I really think if I would get about three good hours in I would be ready to go.
As I was cleaning I put my to-longarm quilts back on my Quilt Keeper hanger. I really love this hanger for storing my quilts that need to be longarmed. It hangs on the door and keeps them out of the way. More than that, I love that it reminds me that I need to quilt them. There is nothing like keeping something out and in plain sight as a reminder.
It just so happens that Ellen from Quilt Keeper contacted me and told me I could offer you all 10% off if you use the code JOSBLOG at checkout. HERE is a link to their website if you are interested in their over-the-door quilt hanger. They offer a discount if you buy three so buy two as gifts and keep one for yourself. HA!!
When I was cleaning and hanging the quilts on the rack, I saw this one there. It’s a completed top now. It was one of my Dirty Dozen UFO quilts that I really wanted to finish.
This was gifted by a blog reader and originally came to me like this. I got it all sewn but had hoped to get in all the finished last month as it was the Dirty Dozen UFO that was called. Drat.
I am super excited about this…I’m happy that one of the quilts in the listing doesn’t look complicated to finish.
That got me thinking that I should look up the December UFO. It is #4-Floribunda. Blah. I don’t think I’ll get to this one.
There really isn’t a start to this. I would feel more comfortable calling it a kit than a start.
This is a Bonnie Hunter freebie pattern. Oh, I’d like to get it finished. Alas.
My Iowa Hawkeyes quilt is waiting. Twice I almost pushed the stuff that needs to be put away aside and started sewing without finishing the cleaning…but, I know better. I can’t do that or I’ll never finish doing the cleaning.
I changed the way I’m keeping my African Violets. At least I’m trying this to see if I like it. I wish I could keep more plants on the main floor of the house but between kids and dogs, but it’s not the safest for my plants or the kids and dogs.
We need to make thresholds yet for the doorways. I’ll see if I can get my son Buck to do that the next time he comes.
That’s the news from my sewing room. Nothing too exciting…It’s progress though and I’m celebrating that!! Hopefully this week I’ll actually get some sewing done. Fingers crossed!!
