No Computer!

My computer has been acting up lately so it is out being checked. I am typing this on my iPad. I am finding out how dependent I am on my lap top. Bejeweled Blitz is just not the same!!

At least I am doing lots more sewing! I finished a little quilt top today and I played with my flower maker. I will get pictures up ASAP!

A Clean Sewing Room…Again

Yes I finally cleaned my sewing room-again!  This time, instead of just shoving stuff into my closet, I was able to similar things together on my new shelves!


Look at this horrible mess- I moved the drawers from next to the TV to under the new shelves so now I have my desk area back.DSC01949

This corner was killing me.  If something fell, it was gone forever!


Now it looks like this:


This is a new shelf that I PUT TOGETHER MYSELF!! When we get it on the wall and filled, I will post a picture.


Here is a picture of a little quilt I am working on.  I love my little kitties! DSC01957 DSC01958

Yes!  I finally finished something!

Not that I have not been busy.  Since it has been so gosh darn cold I have mostly been working on my afghan.  It is coming along slowly.  It has 20 colors plus white.  It is 72” wide so the rows take a while.  I am working on the second repeat of colors:


I plan to do three repeats and then some kind of border.

I have also quilted a couple of quilts and some placemats but more on that later.

This is what I finished:


It is a cover for my I pad:


(Note the shameless plug of my grandsons!)

About two years ago Katie and I hit up the Rescue Mission Clothing Store looking for wool to felt.  Well, we promptly forgot all about it.  Last week Katie came over and we finished getting the fabrics ready for the wash (make that five wash loads!). I made the cover from some of the fabrics.

This is the back.  I quilted over the pattern that was already there.


I  put in a pocket…


…And I even covered a button!


I really, really like it!

And here is a preview of my next post:DSC01947
