Well, I never did get around to making any pink blocks this weekend. After I made my 9 patches and my other blocks for my swap, I stopped. I started moving furniture around in the bedroom and then we went to dinner. We had a flat tire and had to wait for AAA to come change the tire. By the time we got home, it was too late to do any sewing at all...I decided to wait until Sunday afternoon. Well, it got worse, our freezer quit working and I had to move everything in the freezer to the refrigerator freezer, then we moved the freezer out of the house and moved our extra refrigerator into the house to use that small freezer until we can get a big freezer to replace ours. Then another catastrophe hit. The hot water heater quit working. I told my husband if one more thing broke, we were moving... Well, my husband is working on the hot water heater and we haven't replaced it yet. He just keeps lighting it and babying it until this weekend and we will replace it. He tried a few things to fix it, but they didn't work so the next step is replacing it. While all this was going on, I didn't get any sewing done. Finally, Monday night, I stopped and made three pink blocks. well, they're kinda pink...pinkish purple but I'm calling them pink. I made three disappearing 9 patches.
I also put some of my little wallhangings on the walls in my new sewing area...Here's some pics. I've never had some of these up so I'm pretty excited to have them hanging. I decided I would hang as many as I could and keep them up for awhile then rearrange later. I still haven't hung all of them but I thought you might like a look at some of them...
I still don't have everything arranged like I want it. I'm still tweeking it but I can at least go in and sew. I now have a window to look out of too, I'm real excited about that! I hung all of these by myself and my husband came in and started looking around and saying, this one's crooked and that one's crooked...He's going to come in and fix them when he gets through doing all of his maintenance around the house. He says he can't stand to come into the room and look at everything crooked. I'll show you more when I finish.
I'm just using the design board temporarily. I'm trying to decide exactly how I want to do my design wall. What do you use for your design wall? Do you put anything up on the wall besides batting or flannel? Do you use a backing ? Help, I need some suggestions, please.
Ok, that's it for now. I just got back from tatting and I've got to eat something. Until next time, happy sewing!
