Huge Ironing Board

Here's a pic of my ironing board setup. All of those drawers have a UFO in them! Guess I should have cleaned off the top so you could really see it! It's wonderful because it's rectangle rather than the ordinary ironing board, also, it's not against a wall, so I can let yardage drop if need be. Made of plywood, cut to size with a blanket and the silver fabric stapled to the underside, not too soft and stretched tightly, then stapled. I love it!! I have the Oliso iron that is always down, no lifting--saves my wrists for tennis!!

  1. Now THAT'S an ironing board! Very nice cabinet too. Overall, an excellent idea. Where did you get the cabinet?

  2. It's really not a cabinet, it's one of those storage units that are designed for garage storage. I removed the middle shelf and put three of those white plastic set of clear drawers on the bottom shelf. I used the middle shelf and put it over another narrow cabinet to give it more depth/surface storage.

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. 

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…
