Works in Progress (WIP)

Soooo,  I've really been working on this:
 My craft table!  Made via a tutorial from Organize & Decorate Everything!!  Ikea no longer had the table top she suggested so I got the Linmon 59" with the Walmart bookshelves.  My man is going to screw the top onto the bookshelves.  I think I will add contact paper to the brown side of the bookshelves, so it's prettier!!  I'm putting current projects that I am working on and all the paraphernalia that goes with them in each of the drawers underneath the table.

My Swoon Blocks!


This is my current Swoon block that I am working on, I was getting tired of cutting fabric on the floor... So I worked on acquiring all the parts to the craft table and puttting it all together.  I did cut some more fabric from my very own bolt, yes I said BOLT, of solid Bella white fabric.  So to the left there are my cuttings and partial piecings...  That's my 6th swoon block of 9 that need to be sewn.  I'm intentionally having blue in each block.  Why?  Cuz I like blue for the bedroom.

 And still working on my giant star quilt.  Just completing the quilting now!!  Minky on the back does make it a little more slow-going...



My local quilt shop: The Quilting Studio in Longmont, Colorado is closing their doors, so I got all the products above on 20% discount.  Nice to help by purchasing stock, sad too though...

Linking up with Freshly Pieced and the Small Blog Meet at Lily's Quilts.

  7. Your craft table rocks! I just bought a 59" Linnmon last weekend! Mounting it on bookshelves never occurred to me.

    1. Pinterest helped with that idea. I'm liking my Linmon, you? I was going to get the high-gloss white, but decided less money the better... Me, cheap, weird...

  8. So tidy! Sigh.... Tidying is time I could spend sewing, so guess which I choose. That is until I can't stand it any longer. It only lasts 5 minutes though and the room is all over the place again.

    1. I hear ya! Usually my man walks in, looks at the mess on the floor (where I had been cutting) pointedly! Whatever, I do the best I can...
