I made progress this past week on my Rah Rah Rally quilt. I couldn’t wait to see how they would look connected, so I took my four blocks and made a single larger block. Here’s my model, Nora, showing it off:
This is a fairly forgiving pattern. It’s amazing how hard it is for me to sew all these straight lines and have it all come out square. My husband said this looks more like a lawn chair than a quilt. I prefer maroon, white and grey – but these are UCLA colors and should be perfect.
Notice how neat and tidy the sewing table is? I finally sent off not one, not TWO, but THREE quilt tops to LiMa Sews. Then I took my newly purchased project boxes and got a little more organized. Here is a picture of my sewing corner from a distance. This is as clean as it gets. My stash boxes are part of the permanent fixtures in my room. Along with my stacks of magazines, books and patterns.
Another great buy I made on Friday from Joann Fabrics is my new Ott Lite lamp. First, they had them more than half off (half off is fairly common for them, if you wait awhile). Then, since I went shopping last weekend, I got a special coupon for 25% my total purchase – including sale items (which is more rare). Therefore, I got a $275 lamp for $75. It was too good a deal to pass up. Especially since I do so much of my sewing really late at night.
You can also see on my wall, a mounted magazine rack which I bought specifically for my long rulers. It works out great!
I also worked on my Robin’s Nest applique, but I’m only halfway through the block. I’ll show it off when I’ve got it completely attached. I’m not sure how well I’m doing on it. It looks a little …. messy?
Finally – a gratuitous picture of the kittens. Hope you had a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
