I'm a Yakadoodle tonight with lots to say....

Yep...moving a sewing room can be a dangerous thing. I have found stuff that I had forgotten I had. And the orphan blocks? Oops! They have filled their own drawer. Now, my living room that I am moving out of looks like this....sorry...it ain't pretty..... The furniture that goes in that room is downstairs. One of "the boys" (that means he rides dirt bikes with Garry) came over yesterday to help him move it all back to the living room, but Garry has a cold and it was sprinkling rain outside, so I told them to wait and do it another day. I really don't understand where my laid back attitude is coming from. It's not like me at all. For example, my oven broke right after Christmas. I still haven't replaced it. I should have by now, but it just hasn't seemed very important. I keep telling everyone "It's not like Picasso lost his brush", but that's not really true. I even own another oven that I love. It's in my other house about 20 minutes from here. Still....just not worried about it.

So...back to the room.....here's what the sewing room is now looking like.... I thought I would be able to leave the treadmill in that corner, but once the other furniture leaves the downstairs, I think the treadmill will go to the back of the downstairs. I need more sewing room already.

Next up....We had Craft Day at the church building last Saturday. Anyone recognize this happy face? Yep...it's Patttttiiiii! She's busy sorting Happy Hour blocks. Sharon is right there, too...working on a GMFG. She's a very talented woman!

Here are couple of other friends!
We're a lucky bunch of women to be able to use this building whenever we'd like. I even melted a big fat iron mark in the middle of the floor last year and no one even seemed to care. I just knew someone would be mad at me, but they just said that I had left my mark!

I finished a Bento Box Quilt. Don't tell Val because I've owed her a quilt for two years and she is getting this one..... I got the quilting and binding all finished yesterday. Washed and dried it last night and it's all wrapped up now. She's suppose to be coming over tomorrow to sew with me, so I'll give it to her then. Patti is suppose to come over tomorrow night and/or Saturday and sew with me too. Garry was suppose to go up north to the cabin, dirtbiking, but he's been very sick with a cold this week. He's still worked all week, but he's loopy at this point. I think he had a fever tonight because he was kinda weird. Making strange jokes and sweating. We had Cindy's choir concert tonight at school and he didn't look too good there either. So...I'm thinking I'm going to have to cancel his weekend. I can't have him sick all next week. He's not gonna be happy about it, but one of us must be the adult here. It must be my turn this week. I did start a couple of more quilts this week because it seemed more fun that moving the rest of the crap all over the living room ... here they are.... More Bento Box blocks..and
99 happy hour blocks. I absolutely love making the Bento Box quilts. I can see a lot of these getting done around here.
So....that's my week in a nutshell. A big darn nutshell, but I had a lot to say today. And...now....I'll take my leave and hit the hay.....
Later!

Now that you're experienced with Bento Box, you can help me with it. I bought the pattern a couple of days ago.

Great progress on the sewing room switch-er-roo. I'm inspired by your efforts and Linda's, but unfortunately, my sewing room is off limits for two weeks.

The new room looks great. Love the finished quilt too!

Your room looks awesome! I'm sure you'll be quilting up a storm now. I love the Bento Box and the Happy hour blocks turned out great. I love that pattern and plan to cut out another one for myself real soon.

Wow... nothing for days and now you're Chatty Cathy! ha ha ha

The quilts look great and the sewing room will be worth all of the work once it's finished. Keep at it!

Way to go on the big move. It looks great so far. The quilts look great and how in the world did I miss the Bento Box at retreat? You had the pattern there didn't you?

Beautiful work! I came to your blog from the quiltville chat group. I subscribed to your blog so I can keep updated on what you do.

I'm totally digging the Bento Box. I'm going to have to make one of those.
