Busy Busy Busy

The last 2 weeks has been crazy around here.  I helped a friend at a craft show and it was so much fun.  I'll post pictures really soon (Hanna has the camera).  Also I have finished several tops, ready to go to the quilter.  Oh yeah I don't want to forget getting ready for Thanksgiving!!  There are not enough hours in the day!

Have family coming for Thanksgiving dinner and most of the food is ready except for the homemade Orange Cinnamon bread I will make tomorrow.  It's a bread my Mom always made for Thanksgiving and Christmas and since she is no longer with us I have carried on the tradition.  It just wouldn't be the holidays without it.

I hope everyone has a great and blessed Thanksgiving.  Mike and I are so truly blessed it hard to count all the blessings.

Talk to you soon.

Sewing Room

It's been a week or so but as you will see I have been busy cleaning and organizing my sewing room.  I finally have all my fat quarters organized by color, much easier to find what I am looking for.  Check it out:


Baskets are a great way to organize your work space.  I keep jelly rolls, charm packs and layer cakes in some of mine......
My Pfaff sewing machine is the one I use for piecing.  I love it!!

I made this ironing table myself using a TV table and it is one of my favorite things.  I set it right next to my sewing machine.

 Projects and more projects......... A peg board is a great way to keep all your rulers organized and right at hand.

More fabric at least it's by colors and I can see it each time I go into my sewing room

 I just finished Blueberry Chocolate Squares by Karrie Lyne yesterday and I love it!!!  The pattern is on Moda Bake Shop.  The fabric is also Moda Prue by Sweetwater. 

See you soon
