Sometimes I think that when I organize my stuff, all I really do is move it around. The last time I cleaned out the office, I pulled out my craft table and put it in the living room. It's been there for longer than I care to say. It's been a holding ground of sewing projects; quilts, repairs, fabric to make cute outfits, and ironing. Since I'm getting close to my deadline of finishing (or STARTING) that quilt for Baby Girl's teacher, I decided to pull out the sewing machine and ironing board and tackle that mountain of fabric.
After I finished ironing some shirts and dresses, I started on the fun stuff. First, I found some fabric to use in #1 Son's room.
Out with the old
and in with the new.
with a matching pillow case.
A little patch on a plain shirt to jazz it up a bit.
Next, I finished month 2 for my BOM quilt.
I tried doing a blog search to see if anybody else had done this kit before (its called Countryside Cottage from JoAnn's) and I only found 2 references; one got a great deal on the kit on eBay, another said the pieces weren't cut correctly and she only had one block done from last year. Interesting. I was going to pull out Month 3, but it has 2 blocks in that one and I was running out of time.
Last, I FINALLY completed a cross stitch picture that I finished stitching last July.
It's even hanging in my laundry room!
I was able to tackle quite a bit, but there is still SO much left. Spring Break starts for us next week. I'll either get a LOT done or NOTHING done. Let's hope I get *something* done.
