Sewing Room/Studio

Okay, I've gotten all these blue stars to do and will chip away at them and keep you posted. I chained the first step so I'm finished that much and will get the next step finished soon. That would be the Ohio Stars and Rails from

Meanwhile, I'm feeling the need to be organized. I've talked about my sewing room and it's such a mess and I could use suggestions.

Let's talk about my computer desk...

This is an old Ikea table from 15 years ago. I have a three-monitor computer setup and a TV on top of an empty box so that I can easily watch TV while I do "stuff" (read: surf the Internet) and not miss my favorite shows. I'm giving a lot of thought to mounting it on the wall of the A/C equipment closet--you can see the door to the left in the picture.

There's an "over the door" hook that I have a couple of drapery hangers with a row or two of several quilts on each. I need a place to hang them so I don't have to be constantly re-ironing stuff.

Lots of empty Diet Coke cans and Utz potato chips (they don't sell them in KY :( guess I need to move back to Baltimore!) that need to be thrown out. You can see that my ceiling slopes and is pretty much useless to display even a small wall hanging (if I had one started or finished!).

There's a longer table next to it with the printer on it. We just had DirecTV installed after having a cable company, so I still have their equipment just hanging there--going today. All the wires and stuff still have to be neatened up since I think I'm happy with this arrangement. There's an extra TV that will go in the kitchen...soon.

I suppose if I ever got it all cleaned up, I could store stuff under the table.

There's a three foot wall space between the table, I was thinking I'd use that for my ironing station, but that seems a bit awkward yet. I have another section of the room that I'm hoping to really do the ironing, but I need to get rid of a TV/table first.

More in a bit...any suggestions?

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!!!


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.
