We got minimal snow compared to just a tad north of us that got a lot… but no power outages around here in North Carolina where we live. But we did get a NEW ROOF this week on a warmer than usual day!
What we had was 18 years old and plain flat shingles in dark green and dirty…
Our next outside goal is to remove the bushes across the front of the house to open it up to the porch more 🙂 I am excited about this project too!
But in the mean time… Rick has been working more on my Sewing Room and got the closet all shelved up !!!
So today I am linking several things to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitchers HERE <<<… I have rewrapped a LOT of fabric… I am moving the orientation on the wooden bolts in the closet shelving to hold more and stick out less. That is a lot of Hand-ee work too!
I have started filling the shelves just outside the closet and got that box off the buffet that was overflowing with donate or sell items I pointed out last week in my post. This room is looking remarkable thanks to daily work and a handy honey💖 I have emptied 6 boxes of fabric already! They are smaller boxes but still!!! I have plenty more to organize this week though!
Between organizing… I have been hand stitching on the rooster and FINISHED it! It has a waddle to make sure it looks rooster-ish too! What do you think?
My next goal is to make the hen and rooster into a wall hanging/table topper for a good friend who loves chickens 🙂 For myself and the other redwork I have completed I am starting on this bowl and rolling pin next…
Meanwhile… for my sew along it is Dresden week… I have gotten 2 of the 4 blocks complete because it has been a week focused on other handy work really as you can see…
I hope the recipient loves these blocks as much as I do… I am machine sewing these instead of hand stitching them for durability as this will be a bed quilt 🙂 I have had fun doing the Dresden’s though … do you?
I finally got my honey’s shirt done right with fabric I purchased from my local quilt shop…
And if you look at this photo above… you can tell Rick cleaned out the gas log fireplace… removed all the soot build up and laid the logs out in a better orientation for even display of fire… I love that maintenance he did! I would have never thought of needing to do that … now I will know!
The next shirt I will make will be this fabric …
My grand who lives in very northern Tennessee enjoyed the snow they got….
on a sled… isn’t Ellie precious!!!
The white tulips are opening and looking fabulous! As is our Molly with a bandana I made her from some scraps!
In closing… I would love to hear what you would do if you sorted your fabric.
I have plenty to keep, some to donate and some to destash in under 1 yard increments… How do you sell your fabrics??? Marketplace, facebook destash groups, ebay???? It is all quilt shop quality with even some kits I just have never made ! Your feedback is important to me friends. Have a blessed week and please… if you made it this far…leave a comment 😊 I respond to all of them too !
