I thought my friend Lisa-TX would get a kick out of these pics I took today of Nora when she found the Sock Monkey cup when I was at her home this past April... and then after I emailed Lisa, I thought maybe my readers would enjoy them too :)
We got to play in the "Real" sewing room today - I moved everything upstairs about 2 weeks ago to get the DR cleared out to repair some drywall so everything is jumbled up in the guest bedroom.... like searching for long lost treasure ;) I still have a long way to go before it's all put away, but for now it's cleaned up enough to get started on a few projects ;)
Nora uses it for mixin up some of her good home cookin... uham, plastic necklaces b/c she loves the "CRUNCH" sound they make when she pokes the blue stick thingy... ;)
and what is that on the design wall behind Nora??..... some more of the My Blue Heaven blocks that Crazy'boutquilts and I are swapping with one another. I'm trying to whip out another 24.. a dozen for her and a dozen to keep. ;)
Sewing in the same room as the new design wall is SO FUN!!! I can actually line everything up on it, then match pairs and place on a ruler and take to the machine to chain stitch them all.. then pressing.. then back to the design wall - like putting together a puzzle! I feel like a "Real" quilter now that I bought myself this deisgn wall. How did I get by without it so long?? This is so much more fun and faster - I may never move my machine back downstairs to the dining room agian... ? But don't hold me to that. LOL :P
I'm in love with these blocks - and it helps that I had all of my homework completed before I even got started on them today ;) They should be ready to go in the mail squishy with the 30's Jewel Boxes by the weekend;)
Love from Texas!
