My Work Life has been busy, quilt friends. It's absorbing a ton of creative energy, which is pretty great, actually. I'm happy to be a person who loves my work. But it sure doesn't translate into a lot of quilting progress.
Let's start with some VICTORIES!
My sewing space got a make-over this week!
I've been scouring craigslist for a solid, cheap, drafting table that I could use for cutting and pressing to replace the little antique folding table I commandeered in recent months (I'll be honest, it was our dining room table). Ye olde folding table was killin' my back.
The table top sits on those little saw horses, which provide a perfect place for my baskets of WIPs.
Sadly, after moving it in and drooling all over it, I haven't done much work here yet.

|After (and slightly cleaner sewing table, hmm)|
Sometimes I look around my apartment-turned-sewing room and wonder how this all happened. I mean, I've only completed 7 quilts since 2002. (I'm the crockpot of quilters.) Yet it is such an important part of my life. Well, when the shock wears off, I know I'll love getting down to crafty business in my sunny little nook!
|Nothing like a nice blank canvas.|
In other EPIC VICTORIES, I finally finally FINALLY picked a layout for my brother's quilt. (I think. Probably. There may be some slight tweaking. Maybe.)
There will be 3 of these.
So happy to have this whole thing figured out! I've started putting the HSTs together. Yip yip!
