Western WA quilt shop hop

I had the best time yesterday!! THey let me out of the insane asylum (aka-my house) to go all day on the Western WA quilt shop hop with a good friend up from OR.

We laughed and had a great time catching up as we only see each other once a year. We hit all the stores in Lynden, Bellingham, and Mt. Vernon. It was a blast!

I know have enough projects to keep me busy for the next century! I plan on working this weekend on organizing my quilting supplies. I plan on getting a desk and moving it downstairs in the living room with my sewing machine. The table in my bedroom was a great idea, but did not work with a toddler and an infant. With nicer weather here, I'll never get any sewing done if its upstairs.

I'm still anxiously awaiting for my hoop to arrive!

New floor hoop

I am excited because I just ordered this baby:

It wasn't exactly the one I wanted, but the one I wanted was about $300 plus shipping. This was $150 with shipping. Much better deal for me.

Summer here has been pretty yucky. 50s and 60s and cloudy and rainy. Today is another of those days so I'm heading up to my bedroom to organize my quilting supplies. I hope to organize the fabric and get rid of all the scraps. I'm not a scrappy quilter so holding onto it, just doesn't work for me. I may save some of the girly stuff for the girls. We'll see. Depends on how I feel when I get up there. Anyone need some scraps?

I'm amazed

How quickly time flies by! I have the best intentions of quilting, but life gets in the way! So, now that we're on "summer" break, I'm focusing on some other things:

1. organizing the school room and getting rid of stuff we don't need or use

2. organizing my quilting area-anyone want some scraps? I'm going to get rid of all of mine-I'm definitely not a scrappy quilter!

3. doing homework-going to school full time now

4. chasing the two year old and making sure she doesn't write on the walls

5. cleaning the walls from coloring

6. making sure the crawler doesn't get into anything she's not supposed too

7. making sure the two year old doesn't cut her hair

8. organizing and cleaning out some closets for some much needed space!

9. quilting

10. knitting-just learned how to do socks-how fun!
