It is a new day, with my new blog with a newly created sewing area. Never thought I would ever want to blog, but since I discovered the "quilter's blogs", I am inspired to create my own. It will be a record and hopefully an inspiration to me as well as other quilters. At least that is my intention.
Today... It was a new day. I was so excited for today since it was my first full day when I did not have anything else on my schedule but to sew! After 4 months of looking for the perfect desk (in my price-range of CHEAP), my hubby and I found it and set it up last weekend. It is L-shaped and fits perfectly in the corner of the spare bedroom. One side of the desk is organized with computer and desk-type stuff and the other side is ALL MINE for sewing! I have never had a designated sewing area and I am in "sewing heaven"!! Woo Hoo! Never again will I have to sew, then clean up, then sew, then clean up, etc, etc. Now, I can create and sew and leave it out until the next day. Rinse and Repeat! I am thrilled! It is the little things that make me so excited!
Today.... so I dug out some blocks that I had sewn in year 2001. Finally I will create and finish a quilt with them! They were part of a Block of the Month Club sponsered by a local quilt shop, that I think has long been out of business. :( I loved the fabrics when I participated in the BOM and am thrilled to be able to finally work with them. I have completed several quilts since 2001, but these blocks were among many, many BOM's and exchanges that have been waiting their turn.
I layed the blocks out on the bed. I think I like this!
