Milli, if it makes you feel any better, your sewing room looks much like mine. Mine is probably worse, as I haven't been able to do anything in it in months because of my rotator cuff surgery.

What really caught my eye, though, was the table you have your stuff on. It looks just like mine. Mine is my former dining room table, one we bought in Maine from Hiram Woodcrafts. I doubt yours is identical, but it sure looks like it!

We have recently downsized our kitchen table. We had a massive (108"!) kitchen table because there are seven in our family, but since the kids are starting to move out, we just ordered a smaller one. Once DS moves out, which should be in a month or two when his house is finished, that huge table will become my sewing table. Have to wait till he moves out because his bedroom is going to be my sewing room. It is going to be so nice to be out of my windowless basement cubicle!

What is still on my sewing table is the purse for my mom's birthday--Oct 9th! Plan is to work on it tomorrow and finish on Tuesday. Then I can quilt 2 quilts for Operation Snuggles as we have 3500 deploying to Iraq and we need to ship the quilts for their kids by mid-Feb. Then I can start on the UFOs and kits that are stock piled in my sewing room. I stopped counting at 35 projects......sigh.....

So What Ended the Year on Your Cutting Table?

Unless you are all neatfreaks...most of you have some project or another on your cutting table at the end of the year. Mine? Four boxes of rice that I had intended to use in making rice bags for Christmas. I had wonderful intentions! Well-thought intentions! But nobody got rice bags for Christmas at our house. Instead, I have four boxes of rice that may or may not end up in a rice bag. Sigh!

This is just a reminder to everyone to be sure to change your needle on your sewing machine frequently. I was having tension issues, with lots of loose thread on the bottom, using a machine that never has tension issues. I finally thought about changing the needle, and it fixed the problem immediately.
Happy New Year

Long time no see!


This is the way I plan to shame myself into finishing some tops that I've been looking at too long. It's like hanging out your dirty linen. The white and blue one has been waiting much too long and I really would like to have it for the next quilt show. That gives me almost a year.

Long time no see!

I'm trying to get organized and get my life under control! I just made a place to exhibit my problems - that is to say I'm putting all my UFO's out there to shame myself. Maybe that will keep me focused. I would like to have them finished, especially the blue and white one that I did so long ago. Take a look -
