Yay! A Sew Day with Patti!

videoYep, Patti makes large rectangle! I'm sure it will be on MSNBC or CNN as soon as word gets out. Patti came over this morning and sewed all day. She's been working on bag organizers but her giant rectangles have become quite the joke between us. I sewed, but it doesn't seem like I accomplished a thing. I have a quilt I'm working on and I got about a third of it quilted. Garry was kind enough to make us lunch and deliver it to the sewing room. Oh...the sewing room is coming along. I'm sure I'll move things around several more times before I'm done, but it's working out well. Garry got my shelves put up while I was helping with a funeral dinner at church on Thursday. He's been scoring a lot of points lately. Wooohoooo! My custom made cutting table arrived a week or so ago. Corian top, custom drawers/baskets that lift out. Some shelves. I'm extremely happy with it and it was worth the wait. OHOHOH! I almost forgot ... I have been having a hard time wrapping my head around the whole applique thing. I wanted to do it, but when I tried it a while back, I had the biggest mess you ever saw. I had heat and bond, freezer paper stuck to everything I owned. It didn't go well at all. Then my friend, Sharon, was here last week and gave me a mini lesson and some tips. So...here's what I made tonight!

Uh huh...I made a flower! I've got a long way to go, but I'm working on it!
I guess that's all I've got so I'll leave ya with some sewing room pics.....



This is my spot for a friend to come sew! I wanted to make sure there was always room for Patti, Val or Sharon to come sew with me. (Jen or Jill...maybe one day you can use that spot!)
This is the new cutting table. I had them build it with pull out drawers that hold these baskets. The baskets lift right out. I really love it!

Thanks for all the well wishes for Tator. He's doing better every day. Still on the steroids, but healing. He's going crazy itching right now. It does appear that a hawk attacked him in the back yard. The hawk was circling the yard yesterday and if I get the chance, I'm gonna shoot him with my bb gun. It will shoot 22's but I'm not sure it's safe for me to have real ammo. You all know I'm sorta nuts, right?
Well, later gators. Bed time, church in the morning.

Wow your sewing room looks awesome. I think I saw a small spot where I would fit in nicely too.

Way to go on the applique all it takes is a little patience and you're off and running.

I'm so glad that Tator is doing well. Hey go after that mean old hawk.

Love the new sewing room! It's great that you have plenty of room for friends to sew. Your applique looks great. It takes practice to learn but isn't that hard.
