On a Roll

>> Wednesday, December 30, 2009

Well four post in two days. I am on a roll. I just had to share that the Sewing Expo is coming up in March. I took the time tonight to register. I usually take four days worth of classes but this year I need to conserve vacation as my kids are changing schools so I'll be home most of the days they are home once fall comes along. Anyway, it was hard to choose but here are the three classes I am taking at the Atlanta Expo. If you come let me know. I'd love to chat.

Prettying it Up

So I took a little inspiration from the Nester and choose to put up a plate display on my sewing room wall. I'll admit the TV throws it off. But I can't decide if it looks good, if I should remove the blue plates all together or if I should make it symmetrical by place two above and two below or two blues on each side. For some reason the two blues on each side looked odd. I think because the wall is so small. Give me your opinion and if you can't visualize and need a demo of what I'm asking let me know and I'll send you a link to more photo of the options.


Organization Part II

After a day and a half of assembling, sorting, and organizing I finally finished my sewing room. I realized shortly into the project that even with what I've done so far I still need more fabric storage or I need to craft more. My husband even comment that "I bet you haven't sewed as much fabric in your life as you own". I was a little a annoyed as some fabric is just to pretty to sew on any project and therefore one must wait for the perfect project. Regardless, I am satisfied with the progress so far. I still need to do the sewing room closet but that one will be another day and another plan.

How am I spending my one week off of work. Although, I'd love to start a quilt I need to get my house in order. So thanks to all the family and friends that gave us gift cards, I am organizing. And I must say I love Target's "itso" line. Here is the playroom I worked on last night. Today my sewing room. More to come.


Two More Jackets

>> Monday, December 21, 2009

Okay, I know you're tired of these jackets and I am well burnt out on making them. Her is another two for my family. Yeah, I tend to try and give everyone around the same thing but personalized to their style. On both of these I modified them from their original pattern.


Strip Quilt

>> Saturday, December 19, 2009

Well it took me a whole month but mostly due to large amounts of procrastination. And well when I was finally motivated my machine decided it needed a tune up. Here it is all finished my gnome, fish and van strip quilt. Except for the few threads that still need trimming and tying off.The kit came from a Quilt is Nice.

I also managed to finish a jacket for my oldest niece. I hope she finds it super warm this Christmas.
