What have I been up to???

I cannot believe how little time I have lately to blog OR sew!  Between work, and taking my time organizing after the window install...step by step, room by room, slowly accomplishing...very slowly!
I started with the sewing room of course.  It isn't complete yet but I can sit in there and sew.  YIPPEE!!!  The windows took over an hour to clean the first time.  Getting all the "leftover" construction gunk off, etc.  But here they are...

Windows B4
And now!!!  Do you love my pinwheel curtains!  I couldn't wait to hang them back up!  I use lace in the summer but love the color of the pinwheels in there for winter!  I know it isn't winter yet but I washed and put the lace away already.  When the weather turns cold I add a cream tab curtain under the pinwheels.
And I set up (sort of) my sewing table...
It's not really done but I can use you see!  I am thinking of changing the color some day but for now the sewing is more important.  The rest of the room is not done because I have been SEWING!  Here are some WIP's!

BUSY...BUSY...BUSY!  Hope you are too!
Happy Sewing!

A new project...

Well I finally got some sewing time.  I started this in a class at the shop and finished the applique and borders today.  The pattern is from the book, Toppers for Every Table.
I was going to give this to my daughter but it is too big for her table so I am going to have to keep it for me...oh well!  I will make her something else.

You have to see this quilt!!!

Nothing new from me right busy reorganizing after the windows were installed.  And I love my new windows...they are great and ALL of them open AND close!  LOL!
I did want to share a Quilt with you!  Please visit my friend Deb's Blog to view "Sandy's Country Village" Quilt.  Sandy did a fantastic job piecing this "row of the month" quilt and Deb did a awesome job quilting it.
THIS IS A MUST SEE!  You will not be disappointed, I promise.

No coming

I am very excited...they are coming to install new windows in the house today.  We really needed them.  Currently we have the original builders windows and the house is 38 years old.  Some don't even open any longer.
I cannot wait until they are all  installed and the curtains are back up and we are looking good!
Here are some photos of the now...I will post the results when complete!

This is the house from the street...

This is the side where my sewing room will be; the room with the two windows on the right.  The one window doesn't open now but when I have new out!

Here are some photos from out trip to Maryland this weekend to see my daughter's family...
Our grandson walking around Annapolis!

Okay, the workmen are here...with the windows...I must inspect!
Happy sewing!
