Spring Cleaning!

Spring has arrived and that means no more procrastinating! Norma and Leslie pitched in to help clean my sewing room! Here they are trying to decide whether to keep or donate to a worthy cause. It is great to have friends decide these things.. takes the worry away! Here they are folding fabric and putting into bins...

My dog Abbie wanted to make sure she was helping...

My other dog "Babe" was supervising...

Can you believe the mess???

My wonderful "civil war" browns...

Here are a few of the completed bins ready for me to label...

My new shelves with baskets for me to organize patterns and projects...

My wonderful organized closet... (do you think I have TOO MUCH FABRIC?) Livy helped me organize the larger pieces on the bottom shelf.

I love my pin cushions.. and Norma will not throw away a pin.. so she kept sticking them in my cute pin cushions.

Oh yes.. one more organizer.. love the shoe organizer I put on the closet door helps keep the odd sized stuff together..

So now you know why.. I haven't blogged because I haven't had much time.. it is amazing how much I had accumulated.. yikes it can be scarrrry! Thanks to my wonderful friends I now have a great place to sew! More patterns to come..
Thanks to for carrying my patterns.. I LOVE THIS SHOP!
Hope you all have a wonderful Easter! I am heading to St. George for the weekend to getaway for a few days!

At the quilters..

Sorry no pictures today! My new quilt "Survivors" is at the quilter.. she loaded it last night.. I am so excited! She was wondering how to quilt it? I love what she does with my quilts so I always let her decide.. I wish I was better with quilting patterns but I am not. (maybe in my next life..ha ha) I have had so many friends wanting to see the finished project.. I can't wait to post it! Ok.. I am rambling here.. sorry.. hope you are all well and happy!

Girl Gang and a new baby quilt!

We had girl gang on Wednesday night and here are a few of the pictures.. we do have talented women in our group! This quilt was made by Debra Hale.. Debra and Kerry have figured out the correct pattern instructions and will be teaching this class at Elaine's sometime soon! Isn't it great!

Kerry made a smaller version.. I love it!

This is a picture of Debra's girl gang quilt.

Another view of her girl gang quilt!

Leslie and Norma of "Remember When" have a new pattern coming out! Isn't it fabulous???

This is my latest baby quilt.. called "Baby E.J.".. didn't know quite what to call is because I wanted to name it after the baby I made it for but his name is going to be Ethan Jefferson.. but the quilt didn't feel like Ethan or Jefferson.. so what do you do? of course E.J.! That works!

This is a close up of the blocks.. I found this quite farm fabric at American Quilting.. and I couldn't pass it up! The animals are so cute! I have been so busy! Thanks for visiting my website! I have sold a few patterns and it is so much fun to get orders from all over the country.. there sure are a lot of us quilters out there.. let's take over! Have a good day friends and thanks again for stopping by!
