Put your foot down #126
Put your foot down is a weekly linky party to share your fiber arts WIP’s and finishes, and hopefully make new friends along the way. Welcome, I invite you to stop in every Thursday and share your projects.
Since last week I have accomplished much in my sewing room. I took a much needed 5 days off. If I wanted to sit on the sofa, watch TV and drink Pepsi, and eat fattening foods it was okay because I didn’t have to rush to get things done before Sunday night.
New furniture in place. You can see some before during and after photos here along with links to what I used if you’re interested. If you’d rather, here are a couple finished shots.
There’s still a little fine tuning and organization that needs done but it’s functional and I have empty storage spaces.
I also found time for some relaxed sewing and played with Island Batik Stash Builders and AccuQuilt dies. I found a couple of these Stash Builders while moving things around.
The green pack is on its way to Norway. It is roughly 8,900 miles from Indonesia where the fabric is made to IB in California. Another 1,900 miles to me in Illinois. Another 4,000 miles from me to Norway. That is more miles than I put on my car in 2 years. This fabric is well traveled to say the least and I hope it brings its new owner much happiness.
I worked on my project for this years Virtual Cookie Exchange hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. This fabric is Island Batik from a couple of years ago and on the AccuQuilt Crazy Quilt die.
Your shares from last week
Nature is a beautiful thing and if we look, you can find inspiration all around us.
I love Andrée’s mallard duck. You can read more about Andrée and her block at Quilting & Learning-What a Combo.
DONNALEEQ shared her scrappy improv Cardinals. She has another beautiful wip that she is working on in the same post.
Hi Denise, good for you for taking some time off, even if you worked to fix up your studio. It looks great. Thanks for featuring my mallard duck, which is now finished and gone to its forever home with my son 🙂
You’re welcome, I love it.
Your room looks great and so glad you rested for a bit. I look forward to days where I have nothing scheduled but to lounge around – few and far between.
Thank you. That sounds pretty good to me except that will likely be when I’m 6′ under.
Sounds like you had some good time to recharge. I’m looking forward to seeing your crazy quilt!
I really needed that time more than I knew. It was so nice.
