DD's Wallhanging Destined To Be Table Topper!

After a certain point in the block construction, I knew this was going to be a bit wonky in the end. I ran out of some of the fabrics and wasn't able to redo all the blocks in the non-pattern method that gave me square blocks. When I looked at the digital photo, I noticed even more DD will be instructed to use this on her table...wonkiness should be less noticeable there. I really love the design and colors, so I will be making DD another one for her wall. Like I said, I ran out of some fabrics and didn't have anymore of the solid black left, so I'll probably use one of the two fabrics hanging there on the side for the binding.

These are the fabrics that I'm going to piece for the backing and she will end up with a double sided table topper.

The Shop

Here it is as virgin space!

Then Sweetie set up his shop.

In July, he had the shell put up,did the finishing details and then moved his shop in here....need to paint that white eye sore now.

My storage/stash closet....

....that mainly came about to hide the wooden box that houses the PS3,DVR and tuner for the surround sound in the pool room. There are more shells to the left of the door from floor to ceiling.

After I have spent some time in here, I'll have Sweetie build counters for me.


Eventually, I will double the size of my design wall.

My cutting table rolls around so much better on the cement floor. When I do cutting, I'll roll it right under a light.

Sweetie built these shelves for took him a while to get his head around what I was wanting. A picture ledge is a new concept for him.

Great Wisconsin Sports Weekend

My son just sent this to me and I thought I would share!

During lulls in the action (when the other teams were in posession of the ball or at bat) I was moving my stuff down to my new quilting area, which will be referred to from here on out as just "The Shop".

Pictures to follow.
