So... after my previous post, you would think that I don't hang out in the sewing room much. But I do. And my dear husband brought home a new space heater last night, the darling man. So now I can spend even more time down there. Of course, I have a quilt studio upstairs too, which is where my longarm machine, Ol' Betsy lives. And I'm commandeering the spare bedroom to display my sew-y goodness today. All part of my evil plan to take over the house... Ü
Now on to the projects!
I love this line of fabric. It's perfect to make more of my Snippets for the Sewing Room! It reminds me of the Victorian age, Gibson Girls, Mary Poppins, and a little Steam Punk (my daughter likes that - I had to google it!).
I remembered a little boot similar to this that hung in my Grandmother's back bedroom. I think it was her mother's, whose name was Mary Malinda. I've always wanted to make one. ♥

Oh, look! A detachable Needlenook! ♥ <<see tutorial

My sewing room buddies... 16 years ago! ♥♥♥
So... I'm also working on a couple of quilts. This was an International Round Robin and just seems to go with the whole Victorian/red/black decor! I am trying to decide if I use blocks from Handmaids to grow this quilt, or just finish it as is. ♥UFO to Go portable design wall and see what's happening... ♥
I just can't seem to get enough of this fun fabric! And, can you tell, I like RED? ♥♥
