Time to sew

I've been gone awhile with moving, remodeling, downsizing and changing jobs but 
we are finally settled in-at least enough to do some sewing. Yay!

The house is coming along but is not "decorated" yet.  I had hoped to show progress pictures but got too burned out to completely finish a single room and my type A personality won't let me show you a room until it is "done." 

So, here are a some photos of areas in my sewing room that are done-

My cutting mats are hung on the back of the door using a skirt hanger and a Command hook and my rulers are hung on pegboard attached to the wall behind the door and

I have an 8' by 8' design wall to left of the door and right next to my sewing machine.  This by far the best set-up I have ever had for sewing.  I love it!

The blocks on the wall are from a Buggy Barn pattern called Spring Fever.  I don't know if they will all go in the same quilt or not.  I have made 48 of these blocks so far in an attempt to decrease my fat quarter stash.  I have five nieces and I may make each one of them a quilt using this pattern.


  1. I'd love to know the weight limit on your 3M hook.

  2. I just bought a cutting mat and I can't get it to stay in my skirt hangers. Do you use anything to secure the mat to the clips?

    1. No, just clipped it in. The ends of my clips have coating on them. Maybe that makes a difference.
