Whats Up 6.5.17

It has been over a month since I've done a "what's up" on the design wall.

I have up the flag quilt and in the process of sewing the rows together.

I had been searching more on who the designer of this quilt is. Last week I tried a way to get a hold of her and today I tried another method. Hope to hear back so I can give information on a pattern maybe.

But the best part of the day was this morning Bob of Bob's Shop delivered the Pressing Station I order while attending The Springdale Quilt Show in April.
I am so pleased with it.

Fits perfect on the wall I had been setting up the ironing board with a outlet for my iron and a base to sit the iron on. Besides the pressing surface it has shelving with some containers. 

Which I have plans on what to use them for.

It took me no time to start adding stuff.

Great place for the odd shaped rulers and trimmers.
The binder has the Deb Tucker trimmer inside.

The Go cutter and few more container with projects.

In the containers I believe I use to put strips and pre-cut scraps. I have already started saving and storing strips and pre-cut which are out in the garage and will need to bring in. I'll label the boxes also.

I spent all morning cleaning and organizing my happy place, so here are a few shots of a clean room.

I'm getting the cutting table next.

And here is contact info if interested plus he'll be at the Kanas Show on the 15 - 17 of June.

Yesterday evening when I went to go gather eggs and lock up the girls in their house I came across snakes, that's right more than one, in the nesting boxes.
Ran back to the house to get "the man of the place" to help me take care of them. This is the first time I have had 2 at the same time going after eggs. In fact one had just swallow an egg.

I knew I had snakes visiting because my egg count was down and sis see one leaving the coop a week or so.

Today I gathered a dozen from 17 hens.

Linking up with



  1. your room i looking great and the iron station great.......great storage.....just the best space when you have a great spot to sew in.........

  2. sorry about the snakes - what kind are they? My sister in law had just posted a photo of a snake in one of the chicken boxes last week - it was a black snake of some type and they - my brother took care of it and relocated I guess - but I would think once they find the eggs they just keep coming back?
    love that pressing station -

  3. meant to add - next time they have a show in Springdale could you let me know I would love to drive up and see it sometime - I went one time years ago and liked it. Thought it was a fairly good size show for the area.

  4. Snakes in the hen coop would frighten me to death, scary times. Love how you have made your space so organised. Loved the pressing station.

  5. I love the flag quilt and I too, would like more info on the designer.
    Would you mind adding a link back to http://smallquiltsanddollquilts.blogspot.com within your post somewhere? It helps quilters who check out your Design Wall Monday post to be able to link back to my blog and then look at the next design wall. Thanks!

  6. What a great addition to your sewing space! Looks like you made good use of the new storage places.

  7. The flag quilt parts look like they could be a bit difficult to sew together. Great design and well done thus far.

  8. Bugger those snakes! Naughty, naughty! I like having a "good" snake around to keep the pests and bugs down, but stealing lots of eggs is not nice.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
