I did do a little quilting this weekend. My quilt room is still not together and I can't find things but I did manage to get enough of it organized to get some of my Market Baskets made. I also managed to get all of the handles cut out and ready to go. I have over a hundred of these darlings to make in 4 different sizes, lol, so I started on the small ones...it gives me a feeling of accomplishment. :)
I am using 3 different backgrounds to keep it interesting. I managed to get 17 of the 58 4 inch baskets done out of one background. Check on Sharie's progress, she is probably further along than I am. This is all I will probably get done this month, but at least I have it started.
This is a portion of the Christmas stockings that a friend and I are making for the local guild for a giveaway. She did the embroidery and I did the "sizzix thing" (sp?) and now she is going to put fur tops on and sew them up. They will be beautimous!
Here are some photos of my quilting room. When the floor was pulled up we found some mold so the floor had to be treated and then we had to wait a week for everthing to get dry and then the new floor had to be put in and then the "movers" had to come back and put everything back in place. That is why you see all of the stickers on the containers. It did not all go back in the room. I ended up with two huge boxes full of backings that are now in another bedroom. I will show you pics of that "fabric storage" when I get it finished.
My new ironing table, repurposed from a maple chopping block Aud had made 20 years ago and we no longer have room for in the kitchen. It works great and takes up less room. My daughter helped me staple the ironing fabric to the table surface and it was so hard the staples didn't go in very far. Being the mother of two little girls she just happened to bring "tiger" duct tape which we used to help keep the staples from ripping my fingers when I move the table around and to make the ends look a little better, hah! lol....it makes me giggle.
