Getting back into order.....


Mostly I am pretty casual in the home... but I am a bit fussy - well maybe very fussy - about my quilting room....  well, I spend a lot of time in there and get customers in there, and it is 'my' room...…

The new paint has made it so much lighter, also Hubz changed some bulbs to 'daylight' bulbs so the light in there is heaps better now.

I've enjoyed the nice clean walls.… but I do use a design wall a lot... and it's a nice big wall.....


My blue pen came in use for marking the walls for nails....


…. just a spray away for a nice clean wall again.... Hubz found out my magic sewing stuff is multifunctional!


The design boards are made from corflute (old poster signs) some of the paint was deteriorating so I wanted to cover it on the back so it didn't mess my nice clean walls!


… the wadding on the front, not too bad but a good time to tidy it all up....


I love this special gadget for tidying up threads.... I just need to stroke it over the wadding and it picks up loose fluff and threads easy peasy….


… fits on the hand like a half a mitten...

I bought it at a Quilt shop a couple of years ago... but I would think some sort of scrubber would work just the same... it's like a plastic sponge stuff


some old flannel sheets got cut up and taped to cover the back of the board ….


… and now I have my lovely design boards up.....  It's a cheap way to make boards and they are lightweight so easy to take on and off the hooks in the top corners.

… as you can see I have a lovely big table for pinning quilts and cutting …. 


Maybe you noticed another Dutch Treat block on the wall.....  I finished this one last night....


I have 18 left of the 196 blocks..... the end is nigh!

Cool change has come in, I am going to sit and do a few more rows of this little rug I have been crocheting for ever..... 


I love the patterns variegated yarn just makes...

Righto, Gotto Go, coffee, crochet and wood fire …… and my spare rooms still look like a tornado has been through them.....

Hope your week goes well....

I understand that feeling, I have to tell my husband that it is my room and things go my way, lol.
Maybe when I clean out the basement, I can make a design wall next to the table, plan on putting my large one down there, so I have an open table for large quilts.
