I finished my Block 2 of the Snapshots Quilt Along!
I am hanging these mini quilts with the corner triangles and using one side as the label.
The turtle was posted today for the Elephant Parade and I whipped him up in no time. Here is the link to the directions http://sewfreshquilts.blogspot.com/2015/02/elephant-parade-week-4-turtle.html
I stitched together my frog yesterday and added the embroidery detail by machine this morning.
I hung up my two Snapshots blocks with a couple other mini quilts above my cutting table.
has just finished a make over of her sewing room. Her room is fantastic and has a big sectional for the family to hang out in. She is having a linking party and looking for more ideas for her sewing room.
I figured I would share this picture of an old computer armoire I use for storage in my sewing room. It holds a ton of UFOs and tools. I can close it up, but I hardly ever do. I use the armoire door next to the window to hang blocks on and take pictures with the natural light. My TV is also on top of the armoire, so it is out of the way and easily seen throughout the room.
My cutting table is on bed risers which is a much better height for cutting. Then, I have five three-drawer rolling carts stored underneath. Each drawer is filled with scraps sorted by color. All this space under the cutting table is great for a roll of batting and my sewing machine cases.
This is a small upholstered chair I swiped from my guest room. This is a good place for the family to hang out with me or where I sit and hand stitch. I keep my hand sewing basket and supplies right beside it. The lights also turn to give more illumination for handwork.
Speaking of slow stitching, I am marking the borders of my Journey of a Quilter Quilt for the final stage of hand quilting. I am going to work on this today with the Daytona 500 on and tonight while watching the Oscars. It has been awhile since I have actually been able to join the stitchers over at Kathy's for Slow Sunday Stitching http://kathysquilts.blogspot.com
It is finally snowing here, but the ground is so warm that not much is sticking. We desperately need some snow to avoid a bad drought this summer. Let it snow!!!
