Spreading warm wishes one quilt at a time…

A little bit of everything

The hope is that I will get in here more now that it won't hurt my back to cut fabric.

The hope is that I will get in here more now that it won’t hurt my back to cut fabric.  As you can see, I’m still working on my Woven Chevron block for the Skill builder BOM.

I finally found a top for my make shift sewing table.  Now maybe I can actually get things organized and start sewing again.  I’ve been a little scattered in the sewing dept. lately.  I’ve been storing a china cabinet for my brother until he bought a house.  He finally bought one and now so I needed to figure out where to store my growing stash and quilting/sewing tools.  Back in February, I just happened upon a 50% off sale at Michaels on their craft room modular units and spent an entire weekend putting together materials for a cutting table.  I ended up going back to get more because Lil Bee wanted to use her allowance to build an art station up in the loft area–which seemed like a win-win because I was getting her stuff out of my sewing room but she still drags everything downstairs to be at the kitchen table :/  So there’s the cutting table up above-I only had to go to 5 different home improvement/craft stores to find MDF that was the right size for the top.

Another surprise is a pressing board that my brother made me as a thank you for storing his china cabinet.  Isn’t it beautiful?

It works great!

Other activities keeping me from sewing have been Drama Queen’s school play (which is now done),  she has a small part in another play in a few weeks, and our 2 week Spring Break.  We didn’t go anywhere and it snowed but we did take the kids to see Oz and I took the girls with my sister and nephew to Cookies and Canvas.

She got the best supporting actress award from her peers and her directors since she played 2 parts in the play.

Finished fish pics-I wish their brother had come along.

Have you ever been to Wine & Canvas?  My sister has and she had a blast–we’ve decided that we definitely need to do that as a girls night sometime this summer.  I saw that they even had a painting that looked like my little Stella Violet print that I won a few months ago.

I am a working mother of 3 beautiful children and wife of a very supportive husband (that is addicted to running). I love creative endeavors. Quilting is my way to get in touch with myself and unwind and hopefully connect with others too.
