Now we are well into the New Year and I hope you are all doing well. I do visit your blogs and thoroughly enjoy all of the knowledge you impart and seeing all the wonderful quilts, crafts, food and activities you all are doing.
As for me, I have a new sewing/quilting room. For several years our daughter and grand kids lived with us. Consequently, the entire downstairs was their home. We are fortunate enough to have a separate kitchen, laundry and bathroom downstairs so they were able to have their own space. But we had to fit all of our stuff in half of it's usual space - no easy task. Last February they moved about 6 miles away. I still watch the grand kids five days a week. However, it is very nice to have peaceful evenings with my DH. It was also nice to be able to finally create my own space. DH has a nice new office, too. Here are pictures of the progress on my sewing/quilt room:
|Before (the carpet was maroon - yuk!)|
|After paint and before new carpet. I wanted a bright color. It is a sunflower yellow - love it!|
|With new carpet! Not the best picture but you get the idea.|
I am currently working an a fun project involving a Strip Tube Ruler and Batiks. It is sooo much fun! Here is a sneak peak at what I have on my work table.
|Tube after it is cut into a triangle. When you press it open it is a square. See below.|
|Four squares make this. This is so easy.|
I will try to post more often and update you on my progress on this project, too.
Have a pieceful week.
