Bright Idea

Madison is getting prepared for college. She has her books, Vera Bradley black luggage small carry on for the bookbag, found her classes, has the parking pass and new clothes she bought herself.  Well something must be missing becasue there is all the dorm room stuff out for incoming freshmen to buy but not for Madi. So she comes up the the plan to redo her room....  now! It must be finished this week.

So she picks out all the items she wants and lays it on me.

Mom, Make me this....

So we go to Joann's to pick out fabric and we come up with this....

I have the middle piece sewn.

Then we went to Lowes and bought paint. Yay. I can't wait to paint a room. We found lamps and we are looking for a mirror.

I so think I really wanted something to do. Watch out for what you wish for.

This is Japanese fabric Toni gave me for making her the knot bag.
I think I will make her a purse out of it! =)

Working on....

I have been working on a quilt for a friend's graduation. It needs to be finished by next weekend. Shouldnt be too difficult. It is from the blog Moda Bake Shop.
I love the fabric line Oz. This young lady can never find anything with her name on it so I thought she would love this. I thought of her as soon as I saw it. I have finished cutting out the flowers and adding her name then on to the applique part. Deciding whether to add borders since this quilt was designed for little ones or babies.

Oh and I love this:
so easy....

Then I have finished the blocks to the star mystery quilt and forming the rows for it. I decided on a black small border and a green/orange flower border.... haven't layed it together yet.

Then Im working on our 30's pinwheels for the Reenie/Kathy quilt. I wonder where they are on theirs.

Then Im thinking of my own design for a quilt and I am still trying to get together with Regina for our quilt....  see lots of quilting.

Oh I have also been thinking of a way to add drawers to my sewing area. What style, size, quantity...? not sure.
