Whats Up 1-16-18

I meant to get this written last night but we were watching the last two episodes of Longmire on Netflix. This has been such a great show I hate to see it end and it had my full attention.

I did get my 15 mins in but it was all on getting the cut scraps organized.

It looks like a tornado hit.

I had started before this saving the cut pieces in plastic bags marked so I knew which size it was.  These were all stored in one of those plastic erect drawer units. 

I do not want those in the sewing room now.

Going to use the storage unit / ironing station.

So far I have 3 different sizes that will fit in the unit and not sure until it finished what it end up looking like. I would like to think it will be perfect but I know better. Imagine that it will need a little fine tuning as I start using it.  For the past year all of this has been out in the garage not being used.

Was hoping to get it all done yesterday but unfortunately my Mom was admitted into the hospital because she now has pneumonia. 
I'll be driving Dad to go see her until she is home so it will take another day to get this done.

Will take along some handwork.

Did not post my weekly stats for stash, 15 mins and time sewing

Stash Usage Report  

Stash used;  1 yd.
         Stash added:   7 yd.    
Total:  + 6 yd.     

I ended up purchasing more background fabric for the Diamond Mosaic along with just a couple yards of 1/2 yard pieces, why, I just could stop with the background fabric....

Always thought I would do this but never had


  1. Your room/studio looks like mine, a Kindred Spirit! You'll get it looking like you want.

  2. It definitely seems that when it comes to the sewing room, you have to make a mess before you can have it cleaned up and organized. At least you are making progress. Congrats on finding time to stitch. You are not so far in the hole on the stash management that you can't get right back out. Hope your mother is doing much better. Not hard to get really sick with these frigid temperatures.

  3. So sorry to hear about your Mum, hope she get better soon. What a delight to have a peek into your studio, it will be a dream when you have a chance to get it organised.

  4. Hope your Mum is doing better--so much of that around these days...it's a tough one....
    My room just looks like a huge windstorm blew through what with junk journaling stuff and fabric--well, it's just a big ole mess...but it is what it is...hugs, Julierose


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.
