A Few Finishes, Progress & Snow

I'll start this post with the finishes........

The bunny wall hanging is completely finished!

On Sunday afternoon I decided to FINALLY make one ( I actually made two) of the "20 minute table runners" I already had the fabric waiting on my "ladder".

After (I do need attach the button on the Spring runner).........

I have made more progress on GP, I cut the fabric for the pieced border and began sewing them together, I have one side complete and the rest are waiting in line next to the sewing machine "waiting for a turn"!  I am aiming for a completed top by weeks end, wonder if it will get done?? 

I also cut the pieces for this month's Civil War Chronicles, unfortunately I realized that one of the "leftover" fabrics from month one that I need for this month (month three) was not large enough, my fault as I messed up the cutting in month one!  So now I need to get more, I will check the local shop, if they don't have any I will order some.....meanwhile I will sew as much as I can so I will stay on track with this quilt.  I feel really great so far with the progress I have made to "catch up" and by the end of the month I should be "on track". 

On Saturday I took a little time "tidying up" things in my sewing room, I realized that the way I had chosen to fold my large pieces of  "stash" fabric was not working, it was hard to grab one without two or three coming down too so I found an easier way to fold them!  It also freed up more shelving space, so I took a little more time moving things to allow me to keep my WIPs easily accessible!
Some "eye candy", be kind, I know I have a lot of fabric, but I usually get it on sale!  The baskets in the lower left corner have fat quarters, the best part is that this shelving unit is the one I found at a garage sale for $5 last summer!

 Here is the shelf where the "overflow" of fabric goes, along with batting, and various other goodies!

 This is where I stack the WIPs.

I will finish up with the SNOW, this is what it looks like out my sewing room window this morning!  Thankfully, it will be in the mid to high 40's today and will melt quickly!

Have a wonderful day.


  1. Hi Denise. I just love that little bunny quilt. So cute! You've been busy, haven't you. I wish I got more quilting done than I do. I have too many hobbies and jobs and try to do too much.
    I like your sewing room.

  2. You have been one busy girl... love the shelf unit and you decorated it so nicely, perfect in your sewing room. Okay you have fabric and I have tools... no I don't want to trade...lol.

    Love the bunny quilt and those runners are gorgeous. You do the nicest work Denise.

    So it is you that is sending that snow our way tonight. We have a beautiful sunny warmer day today, I am only hoping that they are wrong but after seeing that maybe they aren't.

    Hope you have a great week Denise.

    Hugs, Deb
