Welcome back everyone to the life of a fabric hoarder. Alright first off... do as I say not as I do. I'm sure you've heard this expression. Here at the homestead we use it quite frequently. LOL. So guess what, you are now part of the family. After we last visited and I complained ok smiled from ear to ear about how much fabric I have I uhhhh ummmm bought more... (Insert lecture here).... yeah yeah I can see your mouth moving but I can't here you... my fingers are in my ears lalalalalalalalalal still can't here you... Feel better now??? Now that you are done I will justify it to you. LOL. I can justify just about anything to make it favor me. Anyway, Prim Folks by Judy was selling some of her fabric for $2.00 a yard. She had blacks and greys, which I don't have much of. So with shipping I bought like 9 yards of fabric was less than $30.00. Not bad if I do say so myself. I always grab fabric on sale if I can or at the Goodwill. Which I forgot to tell you I will also buy old bed sheets if the pattern is awesome and cut it up to use. Another Mary tip :) So now that I have redone my dining room I will be redoing it when the fabric comes.
Speaking about my dining room. I bet you stopped by to see whether or not I have a disaster or it doesn't look half bad. Well, in between my bouts of ADD I managed to get some done. I really like it at this point. I think. I haven't really been home to enjoy it yet. You know my bosses seem to think I like or need to come into work to fill a spot on the schedule. LOL. Let me tell you it's purely selfish on my part I only go to work because we need to eat and have warmth and I need to feed my habit. The cardboard box would be a tad cold right now in our 9 degree weather. See what I mean about the ADD???? GRRRRR it's a wonder I ever get anything done.
So I'll shut up and show you some pics.
Notice the tweeds under the basket...
My neutral cabinet...
I am not done with this red side... I don't like the huge stack of red fabrics. I think I'm going to split it up somehow. That top shelf is going to change when I get my new fabric.
I know it's hard to see but in the right lower corner under the red basket is a black box. I put all my stitching junk in there. Easy access hidden from sight.
I just LOVE my green/blue/black side. Again all changing when I get my new fabric.
The mini quilt I just finished...
This is going to be my not quite done corner. I can just hang the items I'm working on over the rack to get it out of the way. For now it has some finished quilts on it.
I absolutely LOVE how it is turning out. I just look around at all the colors and imagine the wonderful things I will be making for the rest of my life since I can't seem to finish one project before I start another.
Hence this project... I'm starting on a swag for my living room. Which by the way I decided I HATE ironing. I had to iron all 5 yards of this stupid wrinkly fabric. But I digress. This has been on my to do list since Steve hung my fabric over the rod. The picture coloring is awful but it is black and mustard. I will be attempting to line it with my muslin. This should prove interesting. LOL.
Then I have been trying to finish up my stitchery and of course ran out of one of the colors. GRRRRR.... So I need to pick that up today. I have like a bazillion (yes this is a word) things I want to start and do. I need to paint the things Steve built and stain a few other things. My only saving grace is my garage is too cold and messy to paint in. I finished taking down the rest of the Christmas decor yesterday too. Steve says it looks bare now. I have not redecorated as of yet. Once again another thing I NEED to do. I think my to do list keeps growing hour by hour. (sigh) Oh and I promised to get some new things up for sale on my selling blog. It is saved and almost ready. I had to take some pictures because I didn't like any of the ones I first did. I will try to load those up and get my prices in. Now that I'm completely depressed at my to do list I better get moving. I have another massage today because when I fell a week and a half ago my leg is still sore and my shoulder is giving me fits.
Oh we also set a new BFF Crafting Day for January 25th. If you live in or near Wayne County Ohio and want to come shoot me an email for info.
Uggghhhh ADD kicking in I better get busy as I go back to work tomorrow.
