{Post 1,348} Baby Quilt Finished!

My daughter never reads my blog, so this secret is safe.  She wanted a sock monkey quilt.  I am making her two.  This first one is one of Mary's Strippies.  It finished 42" x 50"...good for a toddler.  The other one I'm making is smaller.

I just meander quilted all over in a large pattern with a variegated thread of yellow, red, blue, and green.

{Post 1,347} Getting There With Sewing Space

Here is the view left to right in my sewing area in my bedroom.  So many little things got done, but I must stop and machine quilt a baby quilt for a week from today.  

The mini quilts above the ironing station (last pic) are just taped in place.  I actually have at least 2 more but don't know where they are right now.  

There will be a curtain on the edge of the ironing station to hide the plastic drawers eventually.

Wes built a shelf lifter so I can store bolts of fabric under the cutting table.  That means my green shelf by the door does not have to be used in its entirety for fabric bolts!  Yea!!

It goes the whole way across.  Eventually I will get all the many boxes and bins of stuff in here organized.  All in good time.  I want to make new curtains for the bookshelf, ironing station, and cutting table.  The green ones have been with me a very long time.  There are more minis to (find and) put up.  

But now--the baby quilt is calling.

{Post 1,346} 4 Out of 6 Lights Up

The pictures don't do it justice, but 4 of the 6 canned lights are up and functioning.  Like night and day is the only way to describe the difference.

All I can say is that once I make a decision, I don't waste time!  How do you like the "new me"?
