Some New Things I'm Working On

I have been so inspired by some of the blogs I read.  I have been busy making some new things.  Crazy Quilts have always tugged at my heart strings and I have collected fabric to use in them for years.  I mean COLLECTED as in bordering on hoarding.  But, when you grow up with your Mother and both Grandmothers sewing it's kind of impossible not to love fabric.  I have been moving my sewing room into my daughter's old room, she recently moved into an apartment.  Another blog inspired me to make a real workroom with my space.   My Desert Cottage is hosting a Where Bloggers Create Party.  I wanted to join in, so I had to spruce up and move my workroom upstairs.  My DH asked if I was going to take a picture of the basement (old workspace), I said, "No just the new improved space".   In the task of moving my fabric, I have come across the many beautiful pieces I have collected.  Is it only me, or does some fabric just make you smile?   I have been known to start a project and not see it through so,  I am starting on a few small projects, journal covers and needlecases.


I have pieced a few to take with me when I am waiting in a doctor's office or in the car on a trip.  If I have something to work on, the time goes by so much nicer.

I have almost completed this one,  just a few beads to be added.

A journal cover that is near completion.  I love a small project that you can pick up and work on when you get a few moments. 
If you need some inspiration of the Crazy Quilt  type check out-cathyscrazybydesignplays-with-needles, and Ruth Rae okay Ruth's not old school crazy quilting, but what she does is certainly an inspiration.
