Spring Cleaning…

DSCN3172

DSCN3156I didn’t need to do too much to clean my sewing room. While I’m not a sloppy person I don’t let little things bother me either… I also am not someone who just throws things around, when I’m done working with a project everything gets put back into place when I am working on something it’s stored in a little bin by my machines or cutting areas. I’m currently working on two blocks of the month projects, so those parts are hanging about my sewing and cutting areas.

A few years ago I did a blog post about my sewing room and at the time I loved the design of it, but over time I grew to dislike it intensely. I love sewing in front of my window. I do not know why I just do. Perhaps it’s because it’s contact with the outside world since I am home so much of the time I don’t get a lot of contact outside of this house. Last year we were trying to move over the summer months, we had a home all picked out, and ready were all packed and ready to move and then I found out that our realtor/property manager was pretty much a crook. They took all our money but gave us no keys to move into the new home. We lost not only our money but had to scramble to try and renew the lease where we still currently lived. It was not a fun experience and I hope I am never so gullible again. The only nice thing to come out of it is when I unpacked my sewing room I gave it a new look something I really like much better and feel comfortable working in.

So below is my sewing room.

Easter Gnomes Bundled

Shop At Home HopToday is the last day of the Shop At Home Blog Hop and it has been a wonderful experience to do something like this. I can honestly say I’d do it again in a heartbeat… It’s been wonderful to see all the new visitors to my blog and the kind comments you’ve made about the gnomes. I love them and am glad you’re enjoying them also.

Today, we have the last of the ten shops on the list, I will also list the other 30 below today’s list in case you’re just getting started with the hop. There are some wonderful designers in this hop with some awesome sales and great sites.

I’d like to thank Linda at Colourwerx. She organized this hop with less than a weeks notice and that to me is a pretty amazing thing to do.

Today I have the rest of the gnomes for Easter, and a free pattern for you, so be sure to check inside and have a look at those also.

With today’s post, you’ve hopefully visited all of the previous shops, but for those of you just getting started, I will post those links below today’s list for your convenience. For me, this has been a wonderful chance to meet many new designers that I never realized were out there and get to know them thru there blogs or patterns.

I know many of you are creating masks for the various medical facilities and helping where you can, I hope some of you are also creating a fun project also. Appreciate the time off you may be enjoying and don’t think of it as being quarantined… I like to think of it as an at-home vacation. I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy.

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2020 and The Funny Things…

2020 QQQ button

2020 QQQ buttonOh yes, I’ve definitely been enjoying the projects I’ve seen so far and at the same time been truly inspired by what’s been shown. I am so happy that my dear friend Joan continued with the tradition of keeping this blog hop going this year and so a HUGE Thank you to Joan at Moose Stash Quilting for a wonderful job in organizing this hop this year. She is also doing a daily mugrug series which you can see on Instagram, and Facebook, as well as her blog, it is fun to see the different “official” days of the year.

When I join a hop I usually have an idea right away about what I want to do, but this one did perplex me a bit and then I got to thinking about all the blog hops I have previously done and there have been many over my last 7 years of blogging. I love them and I love seeing projects my fellow quilters are also doing.

So I thought I’ve done some pretty funny projects over those years, so thought I’d just do a flashback to those early years… It’s kind of like an “all stars” Amazing Race… LOL

So to get started… Continue reading

Quilt Qwazy Queens Hop, 2020, and More…

Worldwide Quiltind Day 2020

Worldwide Quiltind Day 2020

Today is the start of the hop which represents all of us with Worldwide Quilting Day right around the corner this Saturday…

Did you know that March is National Quilting Month?

I did not know this until just a few days ago… I was amazed because I know September is National Sewing Month and I had the impression that quilting was just included in that. So it was a surprise to me to find out this is also National Quilting Month.

Quilt Qwazy Queens is a 5-year-old hop as of this year, that I hosted for the first four years. This year my time was just not going to be Moosestashthere and my dear friend Joan at Moose Stash Quilting offered to host this hop for me. I was honored that she wanted to take the challenge on and if you’ve seen today’s starting blogs you already know what a great job she did of getting bloggers to participate. I can’t wait to see what else is coming from the bloggers over the next 5 days of this hop. My day is Friday so you’ll see my post then for the hop.

If you haven’t seen the schedule yet, I’ve posted it below, be sure to visit everyone, there are some wonderful projects on each of these blogs and all of them will make you laugh. If I laughed and I did… then I know you will too …

I have two new Block Of The Month‘s posted also for you. I also have Sunbonnet Sue news inside this post. …. and more… have a look inside my post to see what’s happening. Continue reading
