The other corner of the room is my basket of more Fat Quarters. Remember that hook in the ceiling holds my upside Christmas tree. I had to find a use for it.

Some are in 4's nicely folded squares, some are in thirds, some are rolled and some are even folded in triangles. Now how am I going to neatly store my Fat Quarters in the closet? hmmm something to think about..lol. Do I refold them or is that being OCD?
Tim did put in an extra shelf for me good thing...
Both shelves are full of fabric and I still have more to put in.

I finished the last bag for Timmi.
My thought on the sewing rom was maybe getting some base kitchen cabinets and a counter top to make a desk. I am not sure so any imput would help. I was actually thinking of a"L" shape table. I would be able to set all my machine up. But then I may change my mind 20 times. Some times your first thoughts are the best.

When you own a home is your work ever done. it seems we always have a project to do. My youngest daughter always asks what are you doing now? Will we ever really be able to just sit back and do nothing. As we were getting ready to retire for the night I asked my hubby where was the "TO DO LIST". I wanted to check things off. He said he threw it away. There is always something on the list. It will never be finished. Even if it is just little things there is always something. I am a" list person" I like to see things checked off and completed. Funny how the mind works, when I see the check mark or the item crossed off I know it is finished. Tim thought we were seeing the end of the list til I started the idea of getting my sewing room. Now we have talked about him building more shelves in the closets, maybe even a new sewing table/desk. I am not even talking about painting and decorating the room. Before painting we have to take the border off the walls. Now you know that is going to be messy. There is always something to do. Say good bye to the border.
Another style of plastic recycled bags. This is from *Walmart*
Their bags are thin and don't give much of a design when crocheted. It is mostly white, not much black printing is on the bags. A black ribbon is added.
As for the recycled bags I am making for the teachers I have one more to do. I am seeing the end to my list.
These are the round bags. One has shorter handles. I like using "Target" bags. They are much stronger and they give a nice red and white design when crocheted.

He is in a group ages 3 to 5. He is one of the youngest. It was great fun watching these little kids play. In the beginning Dylan would watch the ball go past him. He would run after the ball but wouldn't get in the crowd to kick it. But this game he kicked the ball 3 times. They also rotate the positions , for about 10 minutes he played goalie. He saved the ball once. Yeaaaaaa !!! Dylan, great game.
Dylan kicked and played goalie

I have a bedroom that I want to turn into a sewing room and soon I will be able to do just that.
At the moment my grandson loves having his own room here at grandma's. Dylan Austin said he will share a room with Harley.
here are a few pictures of my sewing closet.
You can see I am jammed in there. Not much room for spreading out your project.
I have always dreamed of a sewing room Hopefully soon my dream will true. I really have to think of how I will set my new room up. What color should I paint blue? yellow? I do want something light and cheery. off to the store for some color samples.

These quilts were made for my hair dressers. They are sisters. Judy's is pink and Marina's is purple. I have been going to them for over 15 years.
These I made for my Doctor and his assistant. He received the blue one, his assistant has the purple. I have been going to him for over 20 years.
All these quilts were a surprise
