Sorting and Sewing

I have a few new projects that I an itching to get started on

 but have told myself  that I need to finish / get caught up on
 a few other things first, so her is a round up of what I have been up to this week.

Sorting the Sewing Space
(nope never found those pins or the pincushion)

This is "my side" of the back room.
The other side is the kids space for the PlayStation etc.

Fabrics unpacked, stacked and ready to go.

This is a "keeping it real" shot.
I am certain it will get in more of a "creative mess" than this
and I have also claimed the top two shelves of the bookcase!

I am trying to motivate myself to get back into my
 Farmer's Wife Quilt by "displaying" it :o)

As for actual sewing, I have been working on my

Merry Merry Snowman

With the arrival of Block 7 I thought I had better get a move on with this one.

Above is Blocks 1 - 7
Blocks 4 - 7 were prepared ready to be sewn in this pic and it you look up
a few pics you will see that I have started to cut and piece block 9. 
The FQ Shop is very generous with the fabrics in their BOM's 
that I have the fabric to start this block already.

Here are Blocks 5 and 6 finished.
Block 5

Block 6
 Block 7 is now on my little table waiting for some attention.

Whilst unpacking I also found this little Christmas wall hanging.
All it needed was the hanger to be attached and it was finished.
So this is my only finish or the month and my only OPAM item.

Today I am going to play with these

Enjoy your day doing something you love.

  5. Your sewing space is looking gorgeous Sharon, and I love Merry Merry Snowman. I too have been doing this one as a block of the month, but havn't started it yet til I get a few other things finished lol

  6. Your space looks great.Lovely work as usual,I love the snowman block,have been watching your progress with it,looking forward to seeing it complete.
    Ps my our small bedroom,in the UK we call them the box can imagine why.I do try to keep it tidy,but most of the time it looks like someone has thrown a bomb in there...

  7. Hey! The space looks great! Good idea to display your FW. And I love - LOVE the snowmen. :)

  8. I hate just commenting the same as everyone else, but those snowmen are wonderful! I can so sympathize with having to wait to start a new project, especially when you are simply itching to get started (in fact I think I have a post which has itching in the title!)

  9. Wow...your sewing room is soooooo clean. I'm planning on doing Betsy's Closet as well. Your snowman BOM is so cute! Your tempting me....
