    Joining you! I'm headed down to the sewing room to work on 2 mug rugs for a swap I'm in. I can't decide what they should look like, so I'll be doing some experimenting. I'll try to post pics of my sewing room later on.

    My room

    I am currently working on 5 blocks from my Geese in the Forest quilt. Here is a picture of my working space, it's a small corner in my bedroom. I am hoping to have pics of my blocks soon.

    Cheers!

    I've been up since 7, not dressed as I have also declared today a pajama day for me since for once I do not have to go out anywhere today. Put dinner in the crock pot so I don't have to stop to make dinner. My goal for today is to put together the blocks for my basket weave strings quilt I am making from free pattern on Quiltville. I also plan to cut the pieces needed to make the bricks and stepping stones pattern.

    Progress check!
    My top is almost ready. I will attach a border then to sandwich. I am not cooking lunch- DH turn!
    :-( I wish I was a full time quilter!

    Loved reading all your projects for today and enjoyed the pictures. I will try to add pictures here.
    I have company coming over and had to stop sewing. I did get the first border sewn on my quilt top and plan to join the wof strips to make the 2nd border later tonight. My sewing cabinet is set up in my entry way. My stash and longarm are in it's own room (which is too small to have my sewing machine set up. I cut things at my dining table and iron at the breakfast nook. Scattered around, yes, get exercise, you bet. On my long arm I had some backing left over and decided to add leftover batting pieces and muslin on top to practice some feathers and leaves. When I grow up I want to be able to quilt like all the wonderful quilters here on QB!

    10:10 in CA, chores done, roast in the oven, ready to go sew! My iPad can't upload pix, but my sewing room looks like some of yours, very busy place. Last week-end I bought a pattern and fabrics for a bag at my LQS, inspired by the store sample. It's from a tiger panel, will let you know how it comes out.

    KristaKZ - love that braid, and love the blocks on your wall!

    Chicca ... WOW on those little applique pieces! That is going to be awesome!

    Just got back from the LQS as I needed more steam-a-seam. True to nature, that's not all I came home with (batting, 3 fabrics and a pattern for a dress I'll make for my 2 yr old grand-daughter).

    Ok, back to the sewing room I go.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Just checking in. My goal today is to cut out everything needed to make "Paris Market", a queen size quilt adapted from a design by Gerri Robinson, The pattern is in McCall's Quick Quilts, June/July 2012. Before early church, I was able to cut out 100 2 1/2 inch squares. Before going to the Wellness Center for exercise, I cut out 150 more squares. I've finished lunch, so now all I have to do is quilt with all of you! If I should get everything cut out, I have two applique blocks that I need to finish.

    Could have been done by now if I would quit checking up on everyone else. The center of my quilt is all put together so I am going to go have lunch then put the borders on. You will not hear from me again until those pesky borders are in place and I can take a pic. Keep on working.

    You and me both, PokerDiva. Of course, the fact I fused pattern on the wrong side of the black so the head appears reversed from the way I wanted it, doesn't help either. I just traced the head again & will now apply the fusible to the back of the black & then fuse it to the background facing it the correct direction this time. Darn my mixed up brain.

    I am here, too!

    I'm starting my ........drumroll,please...............Dear Jane quilt today! Hand pieced!

    I've been needing a new project to work on while watching tv with the family so I'm going to do it. This quilt speaks to me as others never have. So I'm going to get a bunch off cutting done today, and sew this evening. I also have a baby quilt to bind, but I think its going to have to wait,lol!

    Fighting to get the pic of my tiny work corner posted, and finally gave up for now...Cut the blocks and assembled for grandson's quilt..now on to cut the sashing. Hoping to have the whole top pieced by the end of the day...Took daughter off to go on her trip and was very good...did not stop at Joannes (of course that is only because of the pouring rain from TS Debbie, and tornado watch!!) Rain, rain go away!! In between I am doing little things for the quilted purses I am making..So many projects in process, and want to do hand quilting!! Some of us are just never happy!! LOL

    You too??

    I am so mad at myself I can just spit.

    I spent hours printing just the right size font and measuring them on the quilt top to make sure the words fit. Put the printed pages on the window (backwards - just like I'm supposed to) and traced 1/2 of the letters (20 characters in all) and thought ... did I trace this on the correct side of the paper (steam-a-seam has two papers ). I *thought* I remembered that I was supposed to trace it on the paper that didn't retain the web. When I looked at my tracings, I traced it on the paper that retained the web. So I erased all the tracings, flipped the paper and traced again. Now I've got 15 characters traced and I ran out of paper - went into the sewing room to get the remainder of the roll and ... read the directions. DUMMY DUMMY DUMMY!! I had it right the first time!! At least I haven't cut them yet.

    My eraser is getting as much of a work out as my seam ripper usually does!

    I need a break. Lunch sounds good. Yeah, that's what I'll blame it on ... low blood sugar (no I'm not diabetic)

    StefaniB123 ... good for you!! Would love to do DJ one day when other promised projects are complete and I have enough of the fabrics I need (I've been collecting for one). As for hand piecing it ... no way. DJ is going to become very good friends with my sewing machine (where possible ... and I'll find a way to make as much of it possible as possible!!).

    Quick break to check and see how ya'll are doing. I thought I would whip through my memory block but I thought wrong. I'm making a Carolina Lily block with 48 1" squares, and 24 of them are HSTs. So I am still plugging along on my one block. I will be pretty embarrassed later when everyone is showing off whole quilts and all I have is a block. Lol

    Back to the sewing machine...

    Time for a break. Multiple machine jams, picked stitches 3 times, new needle, rethreaded times 3...now it's working right. Almost finished with SID around the black faces, tails and legs on the sheep. The two singles are ready to become totes or pillows or to be bound for mini wallhangings.

    Checking in. Love all the projects - those sheep are great! You may as well just package those up and mail them out to me! Got the table runner all quilted, but for the first time ever, am having fits with the stupid binding. Got my 2 applique blocks all fused and ready to go. Diet Pepsi break before I start one last push! Enjoying seeing and hearing about everyone's "stuff"!
