Projects for today

Naked toaster
 OK-the toaster needs a cover and I need to decide on a wall color- can you tell the difference between the 2 colors behind the toaster? haha

Finishing up a bag for my daughter- she embroidered the front- it's so cute!

Kelsey embroidered this bag- I'm finishing it up now: sides, lining and handles. I'll post nother pic when it is done. I have to get back to work- she needs it by Friday.

Studio make-over

North wall

Where will all this go???

West wall- fabric area- I'll get another white cubicle for fabric storage

So- after taking Lois Hallock's Studio Design class I am re-arranging my studio for a more efficient work space. It's a grueling task! Everything has to be moved, everything has to have a place in the most efficient spot. I have too much stuff and will have to get rid of even more than I thought- I don't have enough time left in this life to make things out of the stuff I have! It's crazy! This has taken most of the day and I'm not near the finish!
Anybody want to come shop in my mess????

Quilt Retreat 2013

 This was the year of the UFO's and mini quilts for me! The redwork project will be a pillow for a friend, the 2 table-runners were partially done for MANY years and are now ready to be quilted, the 2 small mini quilts are new and the zippered bag is new, too- made for my husband as a toiletry bag for his travels. It felt so good to get some of these projects completed (at least this stage of completion). Now to decide how to quilt everything!

I also tried this pattern from Primitive Gatherings ( It was a bit putzy but fun and a great way to use up scraps. Next time I will not use the border fabric for the pinwheels- they blend in too much!
