Well, I did it. I took over our formal dining room. The table and china cabinet are still there, but lookie what the hubs bought me at Ikea yesterday. Shelves! I managed to fill them up nicely, didn't I? Egad, I have a lot of fabric. Somebody stop me! Keep in mind I've only been quilting three and a half years. I need to make bigger quilts obviously. Or maybe quit buying fabric. Maybe now I'll be able to get to my fabrics easier. They've been stored in tubs in the guest room (and sometimes on the bed). Now someone can actually use the guest room!
My graphic design studio has lived in my formal living room since we moved here 12 years ago and the dining room is attached. We've used the dining table maybe six times since we moved in. Most of the friend and family get-together's gravitate toward the kitchen, family room and back porch. We're not a formal bunch. The living and dining area can be shut off from the rest of the house, which is sometimes a good thing with loud teenagers and their friends.
Now I'm afraid to sew anything! I might mess up my neat stacks. I found lots of fun fabrics yesterday, so I'm sure I'll be back in the groove soon.
I did get a good start on my doll quilt for DQS9. I've added some embroidery since this photo. I'm trying to decide how to quilt it now. I'm way ahead of schedule, so there's plenty of time.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. It was hot, hot, hot here.
