More batiks and blocks...

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Just added two more blocks to the batik quilt.....well, one is sewn together the other is just pieced...what do you think??  The dotted redish batik really changes as you cut the fabric, WOW, I kinda like these fabrics!!  :)

Well, this one is sure going to be interesting putting together, stay tuned more to come,

Hello Everyone,

I normally do not like Batiks...it's just a personal thing, but am making something for a friend of mine and all she likes is Batiks so I had to go searching....then buying.....because I could not find one batik I owned...so here is the first block:  now the next few blocks will be yellows and greens and pinks and more purples....so will keep working.... 

  Then, I want to make a queen size quilt for a very, very special someone in my life....(more info to come) and she likes "Bohemian Style furnishings".....so, YES I WENT SHOPPING FOR MORE FABRIC!  There I said it!!  I know, I know, after 1 1/2 months of cleaning out my sewing room you think I could have found Batiks and Bohemian Fabrics, but NO....so this picture is the quilt I want to make, although I don't have a pattern...but I think I can wing it...  So here are the fabrics that I picked, so far....the middle one is the background fabric and the surrounding fabrics are going to be the pinwheels, although I think I need more solids ...but this is what I have so far...I think the background is too dark, so may switch that, but I have a whole year, so ....what do you all think????  I bought mostly Kaffe fabrics (wow are they pricey), but beautiful,

Well, have a great day everyone and it sure it great to be back sewing in a room where I can walk around in,

Many hugs to all,

Yes, my sewing room saga continues...

Hi everyone,

I have missed not blogging these last couple of weeks, but I really had to get ahold of the mess in my sewing room...so now, everything is done, color coordinated fabrics....the only thing I didn't get done was my Sewing Desk!  That is the last to get done as I am trying to organize all the projects (namely 6)that are particially done...so more to come, but this is what I have done so far.  I even have a project cork board with the latest projects on....Exciting...

Yes, I even have some new flowers too!!!  All the bins have books on one side and magazines on the other. 

So, what do you think...
