It was a great weekend over here!
I have a lot to share but will break it up into a few posts.
My hubby and I put my IKEA cubbies together on Saturday.
I pulled a muscle in my back this week so I have not been able to do a lot of moving or
packing up Christmas (still).
I managed to snap a pic of him assembling the bigger unit.
Here are the units all assembled.
I did take the dragons down and that shelf too.
That's where my TV will be going.
I ran over to Cori's and picked up some stuff that I ordered too.
She ave me the cutest little silver bunny and a gift certificate for my Christmas present.
I love that girl!
I don't know if it was just me but I had no idea that there were words on The Proberbial Quilt pattern!
I guess it makes sense but I just thought it was cut up stuff.
I also bought some bias bars.
I need to make some bias strips for a quilt, for an auction that I had committed to.
The auction was put on by my daughter and some o her friends to raise money for Wolf Haven via the Teen Wolf Sterek fandom.
I bought some panels to use to make the quilt.
As I was in my *new sewing room* cutting the panels apart and making the squares all the same size, I laid it out on the floor.
How to put this together.
I laid it out like this and then it hit me...BAM!!!
I will keep the wolves like this and copy them on the right.
That leaves a whole in the middle so here's where my brilliant idea comes in...
The fandom is Sterek.
The 2 characters people in this group are shipping are Stiles and Derek.
Derek has a triskelion tattoo on his back.
I can use the bias bars to make a triskelion for the center block!!!
I sure hope I can pull that off!!
Yeah, embrace your fears baby!!!
Then, and I totally blame Jeannette,
I made a scrappy trip around the world block.
She wanted me to cut a 2.5" strip from every piece of fabric I was putting away.
That would have taken way too long!
I wanted to try the block and see if I even liked making it too before I committed to an entire quilt.
It was fun to make up this block.
Now I have to decide if I want to make it all scrappy or use the fabrics from this line.
Peacock with Alison Jane Smith.
I bought quite a bit of this and along with a few solid prints this would make a great scrappy trip.
So hubby brought up some tubs of fabric and I put those away, unpacked my closet and now I see two more bins waiting for me now too.
I went upstairs to my sewing room around 1:30 and when I looked up it was 5:30!!
OMG I am so in love with having my own space.
I do need an ironing space upstairs though.
Running up and down the stairs kind of sucked.
Any suggestions for a small ironing space?
I will be having some fabric and other things up for sale on my blog tomorrow.
If you are interested in anything please email me!
Have a great night!
Back to work for me tomorrow, UGH.
I just want to keep playing in my new space.
