    I would like to see pictures of everyone's sewing rooms after the Christmas frenzy. I ended up staying in the hospital with my husband over the holidays (pretty significant stroke -better and better every day but still looking at @ 4 more weeks here). I left several projects out and lots of stuff scattered around. I'll try to get a picture later. I did go get one of the strata table toppers I was working on...almost finished hand piecing one.

    bj - i'm so sorry about your husband. Peace and comfort to you during the upcoming weeks.

    I need to get out and pull the trash can from the street w/ the anticipation of the snow plow eventually coming thru. Jan in VA - m house is like that, too, as well as my sewing room (in my basement). I will start w/ picking up the laundry area of the basement so that I can do the laundry while I finish the other areas - after i mark my quilt,

    This quilt is the "quilt of multiple attempts" It went thru at least 3 revisions during the making process and it has gone thru at least 3 revisions during the marking process - THANK GOODNESS for the frixion pen - when i don't like the design, just take the iron to it and start again!!
    my name is becca and i'm a quilt-a-holic :-)

    We're getting it here too! Woke up to freezing rain pelting my bedroom window this morning. Can't wait to get in my sewing room. Have been sewing for others for last three months, Now I can work on what I want to. Stay safe and warm today!

    We have freezing rain and high winds, just looked out the window and snowis comeing down big time. The blizzard is on the way. Would love to be able to sew this week but we have our 8 year old grandson so no sewing for me. I probably do need the break and play with him. We only see him about three times a year so try to make it a great time for all of us.

    I always tell my hubby when you get done using something put it back where you got it and you will know where it is the next time you need it. LOL

    Waiting for the snow to hit here also, depending on who you are listening to ..1 or2 inches or 4 to 8 inches...I like the snow but after working 12 hours I will not be looking forward to driving home in it..it takes almost a hour on a good day!

    Snow here for tonight as well. We are due for 12" - 18". Not a huge amount but enough to keep us home where it is warm and cozy.

    ..... hummm .... maybe that Christmas quilt top that did not get quilted will be put on the frame!!!!

    I think we're only supposed to get 1-3 inches but there is black ice underneath now. We got almost an inch of slushy stuff overnight. It was snowing big flakes but has tapered off now. I'm working on multiple projects today that are in various stages. My 6600 needs to go into the shop next weekend so I'm basically getting tops ready and then when the machine is fixed, I will hopefully finish them. For some reason, the thread keeps coming undone from the upper thread tension control and then makes a nasty mess. As for putting stuff away when you're done with it, why? You might need it again!

    I sew in my kitchen also. I am trying to get better about putting things away but it is sometime difficult to find a place to put them. I am going to clean out a cupboard and try to organize things so I don't have little piles sitting here and there all the time. My hubby has a lot of patience with me and my sewing.

    We have maybe 6 inches of snow on the ground and it is still snowing, but oh my the wind!! I was supposed to work this evening, but my boss said they would be ok if I can't make it in.
