Pinwheel #2

This is the Pinwheel #2 quilt that I made in 2010 and finished quilting October 2011. My sister admired this quilt when she was here last year. (She also admired Pin Wheel #1). I gave her #1 and since she has several granddaughters I decided she needed #2 also.

Yesterday I pieced the backing for my Baltimore Album. My plans are to get it loaded onto the quilt frame and basted ASAP. I am really looking forward to handquilting the Album but it will take up all of this year and a large part of next year.

Sitting on the cutting table is fabric for a Christmas table runner. Do hope I can get started on that this week.

Fruit Basket Turn Over

When we built our house eleven years ago I was blessed by having a sewing room upstairs in the bonus room. It has been wonderful and it ususally is a mess with all of my fabrics spread out all over the place.

Now, with my Sweetman being ill I cannot get up there very often to sew as he always wants me close by. After three months of very little sewing I made a decision. Today I took the leaf out of the dining room table and tuned the table to give me room in the dining room area to create a sewing area. Then I moved my sewing table and sewing machine down to the dining room. I now have a corner of the dining room as a sewing area.

Our dining room, kitchen and great room is a very open area and should work perfectly for me to sew and Sweetman to sit in the great room and watch TV.
Next week I am going to puchase a TV for the great room.

A little cluttered but a workable solution for now but workable.
