Someone on one of my lists asked where were the pics of the baby-I haven't posted any for a couple of weeks I guess! We had him here on Monday-JW's first full day at Med. school- & I took a few new pics. He had his first shots that day but he was good as gold, no fever or fussing.
Gorgeous boy! So huggable & kissable!
I was forced to go to Quiltz this week, I needed binding for the Future's So Bright quilt & while there I tried very hard to resist but succumbed to an additional fabric purchase! They have a new line called "Harmonies" that I found irresistible- apparently I am not the only one because it's a brand new line & several of the bolts are almost gone.
The photo doesn't do it justice it's beautiful & I bought enough for a full length apron with the brown & pink spot for ruffle & trim. I am going to make one of the retro aprons from Cindy Taylor Oates "More Retro Aprons" book. I bought the fabric with my 25% off coupon.
I promised pics. of my new quilt hanging/storage system. it's out in the loft by my longarm machine.
You can see that I still have one empty rod & I have a few more quilts to hang but first I need to bind them, I only want to hang completed quilts here. I have 12 up so far & the system is working as well as I hoped, DH did a great job of carrying out my design!
The wall grid is a similar system to those used in many retail stores, strong & very efficient, takes up little space, I can still see them & if need be they are easily moved. I can also drape a sheet over the whole thing to protect the quilts from dust & fading.
I love getting organized- next I have to find a way to store my collection of LA books, DVD's & reference materials- not showing that, it's just too messy!
