What’s New?

I know, I know, it’s been a long time.  I did finish the quilt for Michael in a record 3 days.  However it’s technically not really finished since the buttons and pins aren’t attached yet.  He wants to take Peepaw “flying” with him.  So after he goes flying again I’ll be able to sew all those buttons and pins to the quilt top.  I’ll take a picture when that’s completed.

I just finished making 2 bags that the quilt club ladies taught us to make.  A few issues with the lining, but who’s going to see it? 🙂

Bags

I went to my first quilt guild meeting this week, and became a member of the Lorain County Piecemakers Quilt Guild.  I’m trying to get mom to go with me next month, but the meetings don’t start until 7 pm, so it’s a little late by the time the meeting is over and she has a 30 minute drive home from my house.  We’ll see if I can talk her into it!

The best news is I got to re-arrange my office!  Michael put cabinets up in his office and I decided I really could use some too.  So the first weekend, when he got the majority of his cabinets, mom and I re-arranged my office the way I wanted it.  Moved the sewing table, cutting table and the embroidery machine (now it can be hooked up directly to the computer!).  Mom took some of my equinox fabric and made valances for the windows.  I now have all my fabric in one cabinet and all my embroidery supplies in another – it’s so nice having it all organized and not in the messy closet!

    what a beautiful sewing room, you have such alot of room-NICE.
    Here is a little tip I learned and found it to be SO HELPFUL. Your fabric will store very nicely if it is folded all the same. You take your long ruler and fold the fabric over and over around it and when you get it done, you pull out the ruler and then fold that over to make a nice neat flat roll of fabric. Each one will be the same width and will stack perfectly. When you need to take one out of the stack- You slide your long ruler into the stack ABOVE the fold of fabric you need. You then lift up on the ruler and it lifts the fabrics freeing the one you wanted, and you gently pull out your choice- or add one to the stack. You will find it makes for alot of room once they are all folded- room to add to the stash….
    Enjoy. Lori
