What a Mess, but A Good Mess!

Here at Geoff's Mom house we are under construction! This is my sewing room all moved into my guest room.

More stuff! I couldn't get to my gift wrapping paper it was way way in the back behind the closet door.. so of course I had to go shopping and buy more. You wouldn't believe how much wrapping paper and supplies are behind that "buried door"... lol
Alas, my sewing machine is out of use for the time being. I miss her... doing some hand work is fun and I have actually been doing a little knitting.

My new cork floor is looking great... I am so excited. I have picked out new paint and cabinets.. I didn't think I would out grow my space but yep.. I did it! Time for more storage for the beautiful fabrics that keep arriving at me house. (I think I am a fabricholic..I must make a confess).
I am having a new custom cutting table made with lots of storage.. I will take a few more pictures as things here progress.
I am leaving in a couple of weeks to teach at the Lake Powell Quilting retreat... I can hardly wait! It is such a great group of women and they are so much fun!
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! On to the New Year!
Take care my friends!

Keep those comments coming.. the drawing for the kit and magazine is right around the corner..time passes way to quickly!

Memories of Scotland
I made this quilt a couple of years ago. I have been receiving lots of orders from quilt shops around the country who are starting to do this quilt as a Border of the Month. If your local shop isn't offering it get them to join in the fun or you can certainly get a pattern from my website. Inside the pattern you will read what inspired me to make this quilt. I will give you a little hint: My great-great Grandfather was the Coachman at the Stirling Castle in Scotland (Where the movie "Braveheart" was filmed). I am Scottish and very proud of my heritage.
I have been thinking a lot about family lately this is the first year without my mom and it has been different. My dad is so lonely, he was mom's constant companion and helper. I have learned so much these last few months and I treasure the time I am able to spend with my dad.
I have had a hard time getting into Christmas decorating this year but I am sure enjoying Pinterest and other blogs seeing all the festive decorations.. Thanks for sharing everyone!

Sad Day for us!

Today I had to let my Babe go to be with my mom in heaven.
I have had her for over 14 years. She was my strong little rock. I will sure miss her.

Abbie is lonely too! She is 6, so hopefully she will be around for quite awhile.
