pearl bracelets

Lizzy House and Andover have done something awesome
by making these prints a 'basic'.
I got mine from
West Wood Acres on Etsy.
I'm stashing them...
p.s. remember to check out Pat Sloan's radio show on Monday @4pm!

just organizing.

Organizing my quilting area that is.
This is my cutting table.
It's a wreck.
I'm hoping I will be able to clear it this Friday and actually make some progress sewing.

Have you organized yet this year?
I have been trying to get a grip on each room in my house...
little by little.
We re-furnished the room with the kids t.v. and put IKEA
shelving and desks....
that provided me with another Expedit shelf (lost in the background of this picture)
I will get it under control and
I hope to have some more fabric to destash in my big cartel account too.
Well I'm off to bed. I had planned on blogging earlier
 but blogger wouldn't let me upload pictures until I figured out the work around.

Insta-week ?

It feels like the week went in an instant.
And I only took a few pictures with Instagram.
So it was fitting to combine the thoughts.

I put away nearly all the holiday decorations except I dug out all the silver
 and blue ornies and made a January tree.
Fit for snow, cold and snowmen of course.

I started organizing my fabric scraps.
That seems to be a common theme in blog land this time of year.
I decided to destash of fabric that I simply won't use any time soon.
I posted some of the layer cakes and bundles on my
big cartel page
 if you are are interested.

I spent New Year's Eve Eve  and NYE here on the couch.
I just couldn't kick this cough and cold that I have had for nearly 10 days.
I decided rest was imperative.
I feel sooo much better today, just in time to go back to work tomorrow.

And since I was feeling a bit better...I actually sewed a little.
I didn't finish a block,
but I finished some quarter square triangles so that was good.
