Dreaming of Sewing......

I am in a Rental still and my sewing machine in storage.. what was I thinking.. I thought my time would be focussed on Finding a home. Well found a new home and now am waiting for the closing.. If anyone has any fun sewing links that I could dream about attach them .. I get to live vicariously through all of you .. I have been seriously blog hopping..Would love some new finds.. sewing, quilting, decorating..

Finally in a new state.

ohh I can say Im in a new state of mind as well as a new state.. I am going to do some major attitude adjustment soon as I have a good spell of resentment and anger.. Ok maybe its not that bad.. We moved to las Cruces New mexico last weekend after floating around for 3 weeks after our home sold. It takes a little bit for reality to settle in. I now wonder how this whirlwind happened so quickly.. So after a 10 day sale on our home we closed 3 weeks later and here I am not able to get to anything to quilt or work on. ITs all in the rentals garage.. So My posts will be slim for the next few months til I get into a home.

Folk Art Quilt




This Quilt took wayyyyy to long to finish.. working on the applique here and there. It is one of my favorites and thought I'd share it.. It was a block a month program and they supplied the fabrics... which was good cause I wouldnt of picked the fabric choices myself...but absolutely loved working with such a wide variety in one quilt.. I think it came together great ... just absolutely a fun quilt and it makes me happy just to think of all the long hours it took making it.. Most of my projects are fast and easy.. so this was a little bit more of a challenge, which I should do every once in awhile.

STASH

My son took a picture of my stash.. looks like it could use a little cleaning... good job for another day. I think its fun to see everyone elses stash thought I'd share mine. One is just my flannels and the other is my regular cottons. I love to make flannel blankets to give away for charity, to give to my kids, and to snuggle under while watching tv.. I love my cupboards from home depot.. I especially love that they close..

So if you are interested Sign up on the comment link and send me a email angfrisby@Q.com .. Make sure to include if you have a large project or a small project to exchange so we can match to similar ones.. Sign up by February 25th.... and then we can do our swap.
