    What is on your sewing table?

    This is what I am working on.. Please share what is on your sewing table?


    Grandmother's Flower Garden, tummy time baby blanket for Miss Scarlett that is getting too old for this ! I plan on keeping it at my house, for when she visits..

    A favorite pattern, labor intensive but so fun to find each fun fabric print flower among the garden.

    Please, used advanced post and share what you are working on .

    Love to see the differant projects inprogress.

    LOL, ok the truth is.....scrapbooking things. I spent hours last night making tags for candy containers for my daughter's baby shower in a few weeks. Used the cardtable that goes with my featherweight machine. I haven't had a chance to sew in months. Don't even have a baby quilt made yet..........I am so behind...........................

    Truth be told I have spent the last few days organizing some quilt, crochet patterns that I have printed and needed to get organized so then decided I might as well clean the whole room before I get back to my DH's quilt. I love your quilt it has some nice fabrics I'm glad to see someone is getting something done. Sue

    Im sorry no idea y it posted 3 times... Some of my paper is removed from some, but gonna take forever removing rest and basting stitches. I was unsure how to finish off the edges either half block or leave empty. If you would post more pics of yous please.

    I love your quilt. Very bright and colorful.

    I am currently working a Koi pond quilt. It is currently still in the hand applique stage. I have 3 lotus flowers to add and a 3 dragonflies before I start the finishing details with the actual quilting.

    Here's a glimps of what I was working on.

    I just returned from vacation - hit 4 quilt stores along the way. Decided that it was time to sort and reorganize the stash again. I am delighted with the fabric stash I have!!! I am hosting a Civil War block swap - so those are cut, still working on NICU quilts, as well as American Doll clothes, and getting some small items done - check book covers, placemats and table toppers to be used as door prizes for a golf tournament I am in Aug 4.
    Deb Watkins - I woke up today on the right side of dirt. It is a good day.

    That is a beautiful quilt. I have been looking for Grandma's Flower Garden pattern for a long time. Is there anyway you could share it with me. I am in the middle of a t-shirt memory quilt for my son. Sorry, I do not know how to post pictures, nor do I have a phone or digital camera. But I learn a lot from this site. Thanks

    Whats on my sewing table? Looks like half my sewing/craft room! I finally had enough! LOL Am on second week of sorting out, cleaning, painting, and reorganizing the whole room. Room is the size of a one car garage, and I haven't really done a deep cleaning like this in at least 20 years! Haven't been able to sew in 2 weeks.

    I have started cutting out a quilt that has appliqued flip flops. Also, hand quilting a top that my grandmother hand pieced ( she gave the top to our youngest son when he got married).

    I also need to deep clean my sewing room. Maybe I will start next week on it.

    Oh, I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one. My sewing room looks like a bomb went off in there. I know I should clean it so I could really sew (as opposed to the "kinda sewing" I've been doing on the dining room table).

    I keep hearing about pillowcase dresses. Are they hard to make? They sound neat!

    Right now, on my sewing table is everything but the sewing machine (which is currently underneath the table)--my iron, my cutting mat, a few rulers, a few fabrics (I am just starting the cutting on 3 quilts). Oh, and some stabilizer and my box of embroidery threads. I think I need another table LOL.

    At this very moment there is a shirt that I am making for one of my grandsons. My daughter took him to a great quilt store in Northridge, CA (I think) called Candy's and told him to pick out a few prints he liked for some new button down shirts for school. I may have already mentioned this. He picked out six prints before she told him enough already. So now I have two done, one nearly and three more to go. I just finished five skirts for my daughter and a top.

    Like some of you I had to take a break and clean today. It sure messes up quickly. But now I can breathe and get something accomplished. I want to get all this done and start on a quilt or two and some other things that I want to make for Christmas gifts. Oh the pressure.
