Another Project

Okay, I found another little project that needs to be done. It's a sewing roll! It's the cutest thing ever.

My Thimbleberries fabric has arrived.

House update: The basement carpeting installation is Friday. Once that is completed, I can move my sewing room from the living room to the basement along with our new media room. Paint the living room and await the new countertop. Then, put the house on the market and get ready to move to our new house.

Speaking of the new house...it's decorated in a Tuscany theme...grapes all over the place, rough faux finish kitchen wall (can't get used to not having smooth walls), gold colors all over the place...anyone have some good decorating tips? It appears to have been professionally decorated, how do use what I have to finish that look? Help!!!!!!

Photos soon...do you want to see either house? All my UFOs? Potential projects?

Finished January Project

I did it!! I held off doing my first Dear Jane quilt block to finish my one project a month/January Schnibbles!!! I'm really excited to actually finish something. I think this blogging thing is starting to make me accountable for my projects.

Madeline is done! What do you think? Can't show you the quilting up close as I'm not really good yet. Too many crossovers and a few bird nests on the back creeped in. Done is definitely better than perfect, for now!! Not sure how many more quilts I need to do before I declare myself a better quilter and demand perfection.

I have so many online projects I've signed up for an bought fabric for...crazy stupid, but I couldn't decide which ones not to do!!!

Yahoo!!!

Latest Project - Crayon Curtains

Well, I visited my daughter and she convinced me to sew some curtains for her daughter's pre-school classroom. It's my daughter's design, based loosely on a Pinterest photo. LOL
Here's the latest photo, what do you think?



I'll keep you updated on my progress.

I have a bunch of projects that I want to share. Just need to get an app that works to upload my pics from my iPhone or iPad, have any suggestions?  I need an easy way to upload photos and then I'll use my computer to write the blog itself. What do you use?

On the Go - More Help Needed

So, here's the quilt:


It's pretty much directional, so do I quilt my motif (taken from the appliqued elements and quilt designed in AnS) in the outside border going all around or do I do the top/bottom the same as well as the sides or do I just quilt the motif around the quilt?  Better stated, do I treat it as a wall hanging and that I want to see the cars going across the quilt at both the top and the bottom? Or not? This is why I never get anything done.  
Here's a pic of the motif (may be hard to see):

I'm using the blue thread, just have to decide, help!!!!  I know, I know, it's my quilt, but I'd love some input.
